Village of Oak Brook -- By the Numbers -- Financial Analysis ToolVillage of Oak Brook -- By the Numbers -- Financial Analysis Tool 

While the Village of Oak Brook has shown its commitment to financial transparency by posting financial documents on our Village website, including the Village’s annual operating budgets and audited financial statements, sometimes additional information may be sought out by our residents. Oftentimes that information is most easily understood through interactive charts and graphs. In an effort to enhance transparency in financial reporting, the Village of Oak Brook is offering an interactive reporting tool that allows Village residents to explore the Village budget and actual financial data online in various graphical formats. The Village hopes that by providing this additional service the connection between the Village and our residents will be strengthened.

The data used to generate these reports is drawn from the Village financial software system which was implemented in 2008.

To access the Village of Oak Brook interactive portal, please visit the Open Gov Website.
