The Village of Burr Ridge operates under the council-manager form of government, which combines the strong political leadership of elected officials in the form of a governing body with the strong managerial experience of an appointed local government manager or an administrator. The Village Administrator administers the programs and policies established by the Village Board, directs and coordinates the operations of the Village departments, and informs the Village Board on Village affairs and issues. The Village's municipal code sets forth the specific duties of the Administrator.
Code of Ethics
The Village Administrator is a member of the International City/County Management Association and adheres to the organization's Code of Ethics. Adopted in 1924, the ICMA Code of Ethics defined the principles that today serve as the foundation for the local government management profession and set the standard for excellence. Leadership in a management structure committed to equity, transparency, integrity, stewardship of public resources, political neutrality, and respect for the rights and responsibility of elected officials and residents strengthens democratic local governance. ICMA members pledge to uphold these principles in their conduct and decisions to merit the trust of the public, elected officials, and staff they serve.
