Village Board

Mayor and Board of Trustees

Addison is governed by a Mayor and six-member Board of Trustees. All are elected at large for four years with staggered terms.

The Mayor, with the advice and consent of the Board of Trustees, appoints a full time Village Manager to supervise operations of the various departments. The Board of Trustees is the Village's legislative and policy-making body. It also approves the annual budget, determines the tax levy, passes ordinances and resolutions and approves subdivisions and other land use.

The Board of Trustees meets the first and third Monday of each month at 7:30 p.m. in the Board Room of the Village Hall. In the event of a Monday holiday, meetings are held on Tuesday.

Committees of the Board meet as “committee of the whole” whereby all trustees are members. Committee chairs and vice-chairs are appointed by the Mayor.

Three standing committees review proposals and make recommendations prior to Board action: the Finance and Policy Committee meets on the first and third Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m.;  the Building, Zoning and Development Committee meets on the second and fourth Monday at 6:30 p.m.; and the Public Health, Safety and Judicial Committee meets on the second and fourth Monday, immediately following the 6:30 p.m. meeting.

Residents are invited to attend all Board and committee meetings, which are also cablecast on Addison Community Television Channel 6.

Village Clerk

The Village Clerk is elected at large for a four-year term.

Residents may inspect official Village documents, ordinances and resolutions in the Village Clerk's office. Applications for appointment to commissions are filed in this office. Residents may register to vote and cast absentee ballots, and have documents notarized in the Village Clerk's office.

The Village Clerk also has informative brochures on services provided by the Village and other public agencies available free of charge.
