The FACT Committee includes residents with knowledge of advisory roles, finance, IT, the law, risk, and internal controls. In October, 2018, in addition to a Township Board member and the Township Manager, five members of the Committee were appointed: Gregory Kolar, Kitty Conklin, Delilah Strickland, Doug Weismantle, and Dirk DeLor. Two members of the Committee will be appointed by the Oak Park Township Board of Trustees to an initial three-year terms and a subsequent two-year term. The remaining members will serve up to two two-year terms. Meetings are held quarterly; all FACT meetings will be subject to the Illinois Open Meetings Act.
