Human Resources Division


The Human Resources Division is responsible for the recruitment, selection, and retention of Village personnel. Responsibilities include employee compensation and benefits administration as well as employee training and performance evaluation. The division is led by the Finance & HR Director and overseen by the Village Administrator.

Pursuant to Public Act 97-0609, effective January 1, 2012, an amendment to the Open Meetings Act requires an IMRF employer to post information regarding employee compensation.

Among the law’s requirements are the following:
  • Within 6 business days of approving the annual budget, an IMRF employer must post the total compensation package for each employee receiving a total compensation package that exceeds $75,000; and
  • At least 6 days prior to an IMRF employer approving an employee’s total compensation package that is equal to or in excess of $150,000 per year, the employer must post the total compensation package for that employee.

For the purposes of this Act, “total compensation package” includes: salary, health insurance, housing allowance, vehicle allowance, clothing allowance, bonuses, loans, vacation days granted, and sick days granted.

A copy of this information is posted in the Village Clerk’s office and may be obtained by contacting the Village Clerk at 815-877-5432, emailing, or visiting Village Hall, 300 Roosevelt Road, Machesney Park, IL 61115.
