Your Government

Arlington Heights is a strong, longstanding municipality of the northwest suburbs. After going through several different names, settlers final decided on Arlington Heights and the Village was incorporated as Arlington Heights in 1887.  Since 1954, Arlington Heights uses the council/manager form of government. This form of government combines the leadership of elected officials with the managerial experience of an appointed manager.

The Village Board's role in this form of government is to make laws and broad policy decisions for the Village Manager and staff to carry out. The Manager oversees the day-to-day operations of the Village and serves as the key advisor to the Village Board.  Our Village Board members are elected at large with staggered 4-year terms. Being elected "at large" means board members are responsive to all residents of the Village. Its  role is to adopt laws and policies to govern the Village, leaving implementation up to the Manager and the rest of the Village staff.

Throughout its long history, Arlington Heights has remained steadfast in providing municipal services that are responsive to the needs of the residents and businesses and are reliable, efficient and fiscally responsible.
