Financial Introduction

It is a priority of Mundelein Park & Recreation District (MPRD) to sustain long-term financial strength. For the past 9 years, MPRD has received a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) for its comprehensive annual financial report. The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management.

MPRD has managed a balanced budget for many years and continues that financial policy through all economic conditions. The Park District’s main revenue sources are fees and charges for services and property taxes. MPRD has a policy that determines a goal of no more than 45% of revenue will be realized from property taxes in funds that are restricted by the tax cap.  This revenue diversity is very important to the continued financial strength of the Park District. MPRD also relies on grants/intergovernmental agreements and developer impact fees to fund its capital growth. In 2020, MPRD Park District collected a total of $8.7M in revenue.

Additionally, the Park District spent $7.6M on operating expenditures with an additional $817K spent on capital projects and $501K on debt service during this past year. MPRD is committed to using our financial resources while “Connecting our Community”.
