Boards & Commissions
In order to assist commissioners with their volunteer service to the community, the Village Board of Trustees adopted a procedural manual. The manual is designed to explain the role of commissions in Village government for commission chairpersons and their members. The manual details the rules and regulations that govern commission activities. To learn more, you may read the Procedural Manual for Boards and Commissions.
By clicking on a commission page, you can access their agendas and meeting minutes. Please contact the Village Clerk with any questions regarding meeting agendas and minutes.
