Oak Brook, Oakbrook Terrace and Woodridge top the list in DuPage County with the highest spending per capita in 2017, Illinois State Comptroller financial reports show.

State law requires local governments to self-report financial records each year, including revenue, spending and debt. Spending per capita is calculated to compare budget habits across park districts.

How does your district rank?

About a third of park districts in Illinois have not reported 2017 financials to the state. The rankings include only those park districts with data.
