Government

building

Warrenville residents enjoy the best of two worlds: the responsiveness of publicly elected officials and the management expertise of a professional city administrator.

A mayor, eight council members, city clerk and treasurer are elected. They employ an experienced administrator, finance director, and community development director to oversee the daily operations of city government.

A series of advisory boards and commissions, together with the mayor and council, encourage involvement by businesses, organizations, residents, and staff in discussing community needs and envisioning Warrenville’s future.

The Warrenville Police Department employs 25 full-time and five part-time, highly skilled officers, a civilian staff of six, eight crossing guards, and has the use of 10 squad cars.

As a 9-1-1 community, Warrenville residents are assured security through an emergency telephone system that routes calls to the appropriate agency. Police programs include D.A.R.E. in Warrenville schools, Neighborhood Watch, counseling and referral services, a Citizen’s Police Academy, an Explorer Scout Police Cadet program, and a citizen volunteer program.

Programs and tours are given to educate groups toward a better understanding of police officers and their duties.

The city’s Public Works Department is responsible for another area of citizen safety and comfort.

Water and sewer installation and upkeep, street construction and maintenance, snowplowing, public property landscaping and maintenance, holiday decorations, and a myriad of other responsibilities fall to this department. Public works employees are the backbone of the community’s many successful entertainment events.

Warrenville proudly points to the new homes for each of these governmental agencies. The 1998 Police Station, 2001 City Hall, and 2002 Public Works Building were all built with funds from the TIF Agreement, not higher property taxes. Each building was designed with input from employees and citizens, and all are state-of-the-art construction.

The Warrenville Fire Protection District provides fire and ambulance service to a six-square-mile area that includes all of Warrenville and portions of Wheaton, West Chicago, Naperville, and Aurora.

Five full-time district personnel, seven contract firefighter/paramedics, and 47 paid-on-call personnel protect a population of over 20,000 by operating two stations 24 hours every day. A fleet of engines, snorkel and tower trucks, rescue vehicles, and advanced life support ambulances are ready to assist in any emergency.

The district holds one of Illinois’ top fire insurance classifications, meaning lower insurance premiums for homeowners and businesses. Fire prevention and education programs involve CPR classes, fire code compliance inspections and examinations of building plans.
