Administration

The Administration Department serves as the hub for Village government administrative, financial, and personnel-related operations. This department also carries out the statutory responsibilities of Village Clerk and Village Treasurer. The Administration Department strives to deliver friendly, accountable, and responsible service to other departments, appointed and elected officials, and the general public.

The Administration Department serves as a primary resource for all inquiries and requests for information related to our local government. Please contact us regarding the major operations listed on this page and any other Village government-related matter. If we cannot help you, we will connect you to someone who can.

Although Administration Department personnel are familiar with the general aspects of all Department operations, several of them specialize in certain areas and can therefore serve you more effectively and efficiently. Please refer to the Administration Staff Directory for a list of personnel and their areas of expertise.
