The Village of North Riverside is governed by a Village President (also referred to as Mayor), Village Clerk, and six Trustees who are all elected to four year terms. The terms are staggered, with elections being held in odd number years. The Mayor and Board of Trustees exercise policy-making and legislative powers of the Village, including adopting ordinances and resolutions, approving the Village’s annual appropriation and operating budget and enacting tax levies. In addition, the Village Board receives findings and recommendations from a number of appointed citizen advisory committees.
The Advisory Committees will meet, and submit their findings, and recommendations to the Village Board, as well as discuss other matters that the Village Board requests.
