The Village is governed by a Mayor and a four-member Council. All are elected in non-partisan races, held in odd numbered years, and serve four-year staggered terms. The Village has chosen the Council/Manager form of government which generally gives policy-making responsibility to the Council and administrative responsibilities, including personnel decisions, to the Manager. The Manager and the elected officials work hand in hand to develop sound policies, plans and financial decisions. Village Council meetings and work sessions are open to the public. Council members conduct work sessions on the 2nd Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. and on the 4th Tuesday at 9:00 a.m.; regular meetings are on the 4th Tuesday at 1:00 p.m.
