Members of the Village Board serve on several different Village Board Committees. The Committees are comprised of three Trustees, with the Village President an ex officio member of all of the Committees. The President appoints Trustees to at least two of the five standing Committees and selects the chair of each Committee. The appointments are confirmed by vote of the Village Board. Each Committee reviews topics and issues related to the committees’ responsibilities and provides recommendations to the full board.
