Glen Ellyn Park District recognized for transparency

GLEN ELLYN – The Glen Ellyn Park District recently became one of the first Illinois park districts to receive a "Sunshine Award" from the Illinois Policy Institute for its achievements in government transparency, according to a park district news release.

During the past year, the park district has worked with the Illinois Policy Institute, a nonpartisan and nonprofit research organization, to improve its online transparency and satisfy the organization's 10 Point Transparency Checklist.

The checklist measures how much public data, including financial audits, contact information for elected officials, information on public meetings, taxes and fees, and Freedom of Information Act guidelines, is available on a government website.

The Glen Ellyn Park District passed the checklist, satisfying the Illinois Policy Institute’s “Local Transparency Project.”

For more information on the institute and its transparency audit, visit www.illinoispolicy.org.

The Glen Ellyn Park District’s transparency information is available at www.gepark.org/boa_transparency.html.
