Mission Statement


To serve the residents and businesses of the City of Aurora in a responsive and effective manner through leadership and legislative action for the present and future well-being of the community.

Communicating with the Aldermen


The Aldermen and their staff are here to serve the public. Because the Aldermen are all part-time and most hold a full-time job, the office staff can take messages at 630-256-3020 and make sure the alderman receive it. You may also call the number listed as home or daytime telephone numbers. Most of the Aldermen can be reached at these same numbers in an emergency at night. Voice mail is available at the Aldermen's Office and a message can be left for any of the 12 Aldermen 24 hours a day, seven days a week. If a member of the Aldermen's staff is aware of what a resident has a concern about, he/she may be able to help with that concern.
