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.

As Mayor Steve Chirico prepares to leave office in May 2023 after eight years in the role, this year’s event was filled with his reflections, thanks to community leaders, the good news of 2022, and a reminder that actions taken today will light the way for a bright future in Naperville in the upcoming decades.
