Village adopts mission statement

By on May 7, 2010

ELBURN—The Elburn Village Board approved a mission statement on Monday that will be the philosophy behind every decision that village officials make in the future, said Village President Dave Anderson, who composed the statement with feedback from the Planning Commission.

The statement is: “We are and shall be an innovative community that maintains small-town values while working to enhance the quality of life of our residents; promote and support our businesses; and welcome new opportunities which enable the Village of Elburn to be the ideal place to live, work, worship and play.”

“I think this says what we are, what we want to do, and how to get there,” Anderson said.

Village trustee Bill Grabarek said the mission statement is consistent with the village motto of “better, not just bigger.”

Trustee Gordon Dierschow said the mission statement is not “set in stone,” and Anderson agreed that it could be changed in the future if the board desires.
