Mayor Derrick Burgess


Mayor Derrick Burgess has been a Sauk Village Trustee since 2005.  Derrick and his wife Juanita have been residents of Sauk Village for 28 years and have raised three children in this community.  He is currently employed at the University of Illinois at Chicago as an Operating Plant Engineer.  Since moving here, Derrick has devoted many hours to being a public servant.  His contributions to the community are:   

  • Sauk Village Planning & Zoning Commissioner: 2004 – 2006
  • Sauk Village Countdown to 50 Committee Member
  • Founder & Co-Chair, “Deer Creek Community Watch” Program
  • Former Vice President, St. James Catholic School – School Board
  • Former Finance Chair, St. James Catholic School – School Board
  • Former Chair of the Parks & Recreation Committee: 2005 - 2009
  • Current Chairman of the Sauk Village Intergovernmental Relations Committee (www.svintergov.org)

As past chairman of the Parks & Recreation Committee, Trustee Burgess says, “I especially enjoyed my past appointment as director of the Parks & Recreation Committee.  I was most fortunate to be able to serve our community through the Village’s most precious resource, our youth.  I was also very fortunate to have the most dedicated set of volunteers, ever to serve on any committee.  Sandy, Nancy, Judy, Jackie, Debbie C and my wife represented the very core and heart of the Committee.  These ladies were very dedicated in scheduling, planning and executing all of Parks and Recreations’ time-honored programs and events; the back to school Corn & Dog Roast, The Miss Sauk Village, Junior Miss Sauk Village and Little Miss Liberty pageant, the Halloween Walk, two pre-teen dances, Christmas Parade, the infamous Basketball program and banquet, and lastly, the Easter Egg Hunt.  The careful planning and execution of these events were very instrumental in gaining the trust and confidence of our neighborhood children and their parents. I will always cherish the time I spent with this program. 

As of June 2009, I was appointed Chairman of the Economic Development Committee.  The goals set by this committee is proving to be very challenging due to our nation, state and village continuing to battle the long-term effects of the greatest economic meltdown since the Great Depression.  This committee has set its immediate focus on communicating with our existing businesses.  We want to ensure we hear what their needs are from a municipal standpoint and be ready to support them in these trying times.  My committee members have been very dedicated in planning and thinking of ideas to attract “new” businesses to our town.  Hopefully, when the economy recovers, we will receive the “call backs” from potential new businesses as promised
