Commissions, Boards & Committees

Commissions, Boards and Committees play various important roles in Village administration. Several are mandated by state statute and can exercise their powers without specific authorization from the Village Council while others are used in an advisory role to help formulate policies and to recommend actions. All members of the Commissions, Boards and Committees are residents of the community acting in a volunteer capacity and are appointed by the Village Council, generally for a fixed term.
