Charles J. Zettek Municipal Complex At 901 Wellington Avenue in the heart of the Village is the Charles J. Zettek Municipal Complex. The building was originally constructed in 1987. It houses Elk Grove's Finance Department, Engineering & Community Development, Fire Administration, and the Council Chambers. Significant expansions were completed in 2009 making room for a new Police Station, EGTV Channel 6 studio, Department of Health & Community Services, Mayor & Board of Trustee offices, and Village Administration. The building was named for Charles Zettek, described as the "Camelot of the northwest suburbs," who served as the Village president from 1971-1993.

Elk Grove Village has in its arsenal a network of reliable government services and resources that keep things running like a well-oiled machine. Most services can be traced directly to the Charles J. Zettek Municipal Complex, a sprawling modern facility in the village's residential area.

Constructed in 1987, the building originally housed the village's Finance Department, Fire Department administration, Engineering & Community Development Department and village Council Chambers. An additional Administration & Public Safety Complex was built onto the facility in 2009. The addition created the Elk Grove Village Police Department station, a studio for the village's EGTV Channel 6, the mayor's main office and other administration offices, among others.
