Government

Since 1969 Naperville has operated under the Council-Manager form of government, which combines the strong political leadership of elected officials in the form of a Council or other governing body with the strong managerial experience of an appointed local government manager to oversee public service delivery. Naperville also strongly relies on the volunteer spirit of the community to fill more than 250 volunteer positions on almost 20 boards, commissions and task forces.

To provide services that ensure a high quality of life, sound fiscal management, and a dynamic business environment, while creating an inclusive community that values diversity.
