Village Board meetings are held once a month on the second Tuesday of each month at 6:00 PM in the Village Hall on East Main Street. Most generally, work sessions begin at 5:00 PM prior to the meeting. To formally appear before the Board on any issue, you should contact the Village Clerk by the Thursday prior to the meeting to be placed on the agenda.
