Message from the Mayor

Dear Residents and Visitors:

As the new mayor of Schiller Park, I am truly energized to working closely with the community, both business and residential to bring new beginnings to our wonderful village. To ensure the growth of our village, it is essential that we promote and shop local businesses and create a community that families wish to live and raise their children in.

Schiller Park has so much to offer. We are strategically located near major thoroughfares, public transportation and of course O’Hare Airport; Convenience right at your fingertips. Our Police, Fire and EMS Departments are second to none and offer our residents the security and peace of mind that their safety and well-being are of the utmost importance.

Looking to move to Schiller Park? We have quality housing, a variety of churches, great schools, safe streets, plenty of beautiful parks, recreational programs/services for both young and old, and numerous hotels. Our residents are comprised of various ethnicity and cultures which adds to what makes Schiller Park thrive. Our business community offers everything from fast food to elegant dining and we are continually looking to enhance economic development in our town.

If you are visiting village hall or community development for any reason, you will find our staff to be pleasant, concerned and welcoming. Our motto - We Work For You! Do not hesitate to contact us for any reason. We will be happy to address your concerns and answer any questions you may have with a smile in our voice.

With time, we look forward to moving Schiller Park in a new direction with a vision that will enhance the quality of life for all. Our ultimate goal is to make Schiller Park one of the top 100 places to live in the United States; A lofty goal, yes, but one that can be achieved if we all work together with the same vision in mind.

In the future, we will be enhancing our current services, offering new programs and continually improving our town. With that said, we hope you will get involved with some of the new programs we will be offering. Should you have any suggestions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to contact me directly. I love to hear from our residents and look forward to serving you. You may contact me directly by email. “Feedback is the breakfast of champions!”

I hope to have the opportunity to meet with as many residents as possible and talking with them personally. In the meantime, keep abreast of what is going on by visiting our website frequently and signing up for our E-newsletter and i-Phone or Android apps.

Working for you with a new vision,

Barbara J. Piltaver, Village President/Mayor
