Board Reverses Previous Decision to Decrease Size of Board

At a Regular Village Board meeting on Wednesday, March 21, 2018, Board members voted in favor of Charter Ordinance 2018-08 increasing the number of Trustees serving on the Board from 5 members to 7 members.  This reverses a previous decision (made on November 1, 2017) to decrease the size of the Board from 7 members to 5 members.  Because Charter Ordinances do not take effect until 60 days after passage, one Trustee seat will be eliminated after the April 3rd Spring Election.  The seat will be filled by appointment for a 2-year term on or after May 21, 2018.

Board Reduces Number of Trustees by Charter Ordinance

At a Special Village Board meeting on Wednesday, November 1, 2017, Board members voted in favor of Charter Ordinance 2017-06 reducing the number of Trustees serving on the Board from 7 members to 5 members.  The change will take place over the next two spring elections with 2 seats (instead of 3) up for election in April 2018 and 2 seats (instead of 3) in 2019.  The Board will be ‘unbalanced’ in 2018 as the transition takes place.
