Boards, Committees, & Commissions
Have your voice heard, and volunteer to be a committee member!
The Village Board creates independent commissions, boards, and committees to expedite business, assist the Village Board in making its policy decisions, and meet legal obligations. These include the Plan Commission/Zoning Board of Appeals, the Board of Fire and Police Commissioners, the Police Pension Board, the Emergency Telephone System Board (E-9-1-1), and the Environmental Quality Commission. In general, the Mayor appoints individuals with the advice and consent of the Village Board. The Village Board may also establish ad hoc or steering committees from time to time. The Village Board may establish standing committees that meet periodically to discuss specific topics by ordinance. Examples include Street Policy Committee, Water Committee, Economic Development Committee, Personnel Committee, Stormwater Management Committee, and others. The Village Board may also meet as a "committee of the whole" to discuss specific topics of interest. If you would like to know more about these committees, obtain agendas, minutes, or information about any of the standing or ad hoc committees not listed, please contact the Village Hall.
