The Commission

The Recreation Commission meets on the first Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm in the Council Chambers at Village Hall and the public is invited to attend. Members of the Commission are made up of one resident in each of our 5 village Wards.

The Recreation Commission consists of six Oakwood residents, five of whom are appointed by the Mayor for a term of five years. One of the members is a member of Council who is appointed by the President of Council for a term of one year, ending December 31st of the year appointed. The Mayor’s appointments shall consist of residents from each of the Village’s five Wards. The Commission provides advice and assistance to the Recreation Director with respect to prospective programs or activities deemed necessary to carry out the purposes of the Department of Recreation. The Commission also recommends a budget for the Recreation Department to the Mayor and Village Council and also makes recommendations concerning the fees to be charged to participants in recreational programming. (Oakwood Charter – Section 10.05; Chapter 139 of the codified ordinances)
