GOVERNMENT

The Council makes policy in the form of laws, ordinances and resolutions. Council meets twice a month on the first and third Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. in the Municipal Building. All meetings are open to the public, and residents are encouraged to attend. The regular Council meetings are broadcast via public access on cable television and via web stream on the village website.

Council elects a president and president pro-tem. Each councilperson receives $10 per meeting and the president an additional $100 per year. The president of the Council presides at meetings and is the ceremonial head of the Village. Each councilperson is a liaison to an advisory Board or Committee which make recommendations to the Council as a whole. From these recommendations, the Council makes its decisions.
