The Village Administrator is responsible for all the day-to-day operations of the Village. The Village Administrator supervises members of the management team and coordinates efforts to implement the policy direction of the Village Board.
As with all public and private sector organizations, the ability to provide a high level of service with limited resources is an all-encompassing challenge. This is the prime issue Oswego will face in the future. To meet the challenge, the Village is in the process of undertaking a number of initiatives that will address core sustainability.
Major initiatives presently being undertaken within Administration include:
Implementation of the Village Strategic Plan
Managing the creation of a multi-year capital improvement plan to better forecast and fund future community needs
Exploration of service sharing and joint purchasing opportunities with neighboring municipalities to determine if more efficient methods can be achieved - https://www.cmap.illinois.gov/programs-and-resources/lta/oswego-montgomery-yorkville
Advocacy efforts to bring Metra-BNSF service to Oswego
Coordination of efforts to foster redevelopment of Village-owned property in the Downtown Area
Conduct analysis of future impacts of development, and determine appropriate level of growth-related fees assessed to new residential construction.
