Types of Meetings

The Village Board has three types of meetings:

  • Regular Meetings: The Village Board holds regular meetings twice a month. At these meetings, the Board can consider and act upon individual matters before it. The Board utilizes an agenda for these meetings and can only vote on matters specifically identified on the agenda. The public is also given time to speak. If you would like to speak to the board on an item which is on agenda, you can make your comments during that portion of the agenda. If you wish to speak about an item which is not on the agenda, you can do so under the "Hear from the Audience" section.

  • Committee of the Whole Meetings: Committee of the Whole meetings are held twice a month and allow the full Board to meet and discuss, but not act upon, any specific topic or topics. These items are outlined on the agenda for meeting. The Board may opt to hear from audience members at these meetings, but since no action is being taken, there is no designated public comment period.

  • Work Committee Meetings: The Board has various work committees that focus on specific areas of the Village (i.e. Public Safety, Public Works, etc.). These meetings are held on an as-needed basis and noticed like regular meetings. Click here for more details on the Board's work committees, which include the following:

    • Ad Hoc Downtown Committee
    • Ad Hoc Labor Relations Committee
    • Administration & Finance Committee
    • Communications & Outreach Committee
    • Community & Sustainability Committee
    • Planning & Economic Development Committee
    • Public Safety Committee
    • Public Works & Facilities Committee
