Government

The Village Board

The Village Board is our primary legislative body, consisting of the Mayor and four trustees. Trustees are elected in the March general elections and serve a term of four years.

The Village Board selects a Village Administrator, Deputy Clerks, Deputy Treasurer, Code Enforcement Officer, Fire Marshall, Zone Enforcement Officer, Planning and Zoning Board Members as well as the Village's Accountant, Lawyer, and Engineer. These appointments are made during the annual organizational meeting, which is the first meeting in April.

Village citizens can serve on a number of boards that make decisions affecting our community. E-mail the Village Board and tell them about your interests and experience. Board members are appointed by the Mayor with approval of the Trustees.
