The following Village of Winnetka reports provide valuable information regarding Village operations and offer the public and opportunity to learn about Village finances and practices. Proper reporting not only provides for public transparency, but is also necessary to comply with State of Illinois statutes and to maintain Winnetka’s strong “Aaa” bond rating from Moody’s.
