Bloomingdale Park District was recently informed that its entry for the Shared Service Best Practices Survey 2017 was selected for inclusion in the Second Edition of the Journal of Local Government Shared Service Best Practices
prepared by the Office of Illinois Lieutenant Governor Evelyn Sanguinetti.
The report highlights 20 of the best examples from across Illinois of public entities that are helping to provide more effective and efficient services while saving taxpayers money. The examples were selected out of 265 submitted to the Lt. Governor's Office last year.
Bloomingdale Park District, Village of Bloomingdale, Village of Bloomingdale Public Works, Bloomingdale Police Department, DuPage County and Bloomingdale Township Highway Department were cited for collaborating to bring various community activities and services to residents.
"Thank you to the Lt. Governor and her team for this special recognition," said Bloomingdale Park District Executive Director Carrie Fullerton. "For more than 50 years, the Bloomingdale Park District has provided open space, recreational facilities and quality leisure services to children, adults and families in our community. Strong intergovernmental and business community partnerships throughout Bloomingdale have afforded us the benefits of having distinct units of government that are able to offer unique services to our constituents in an efficient and effective manner. We are proud to be a part of improving and enhancing the quality of life in Bloomingdale!"
To celebrate the launching of the Journal, Lt. Governor Sanguinetti held a kick-off event July 31 at the Hoffman Estates Police Department. Pictured right are Sanguinetti (left) and Fullerton
