Mayor and Village Board
The Mayor and four Trustees make up the governing board of our Village. They are elected for two-year terms in elections held in March. The Mayor and two trustees are elected in odd numbered years, with the other two trustees elected in even-numbered years. The board adopts local laws, sets the budget and tax rate and oversees all Village departments and agencies. The Board meets on the second and fourth Monday at 8:00 p.m. throughout the year. These meetings, held in Village Hall at 151 Front Street are open to the Public. Agendas are posted at Village Hall, as well as throughout the Village, and are also posted on our website.
