Under the New York State Village Law, the government is comprised of a Mayor and four Trustees. Each is elected in a Village Election held the second Tuesday in November. All elected officials serve for a four (4) year term. Not all offices are elected in the same year. A Village Election is held every two years. The mayor and two trustee positions will be up for election in one election, and the Village Justice and the other two trustee positions will be elected in the next.
