Village Board returns to in-person meetings

The Village Board of Trustees returned to in-person meetings this fall for the first time in more than two years as local policymaking largely eased back to its pre-pandemic norm.

Regular Village Board meetings are held the first and third Mondays of each month in the Council Chamber at Village Hall, 123 Madison St. When a regular meeting falls on a holiday, the meeting typically is held the following night. The Village Board also meets in special sessions, usually on the second and fourth Monday, though dates and times of special meetings can vary.

As was the case prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, Village Board meetings are open to the public, but a hybrid option is now available via Zoom to facilitate public comments, remote speaker presentations and any other participant who needs to attend a meeting remotely.

Individuals may request to speak at Village Board meetings by emailing or calling 708.358.5660 no later than 5 p.m. prior to the start of a meeting. Speakers will have the option of appearing in person, addressing the Village Board via Zoom or having their comment read by the Village Clerk.

Village Board meetings continue to be streamed live at and cablecast on VOP-TV, which is available to Comcast subscribers on channel 6 and ATT Uverse subscribers on channel 99.

Individuals interested in keeping up with local municipal policymaking can visit, where meeting agendas are posted and recordings of past meetings are archived for on-demand viewing. The online meetings database also offers the option to search the meetings archive using key words to find a particular topic of interest.
