Government > Board of Trustees

Overview

The Wheeling Board of Trustees is the legislative branch of Village Government which creates all Village policy administered by the Village Manager.  The Board of Trustees, along with the Village President, serve as the corporate authorities.  Three Trustees are elected by the citizens of Wheeling every two years for four year terms.  Board members’ terms commence on the first Monday in May following their election.

As corporate authorities the Board of Trustees possesses and exercises all legislative powers of the Village, determining the policies of the Village government through the adoption or approval of ordinances, resolutions, motions, approval of agreements, appropriations and fiscal budgets.  The corporate authorities appoint, direct and, if necessary, remove the Village Manager.  The corporate authorities control the administrative function of the Village through the Village Manager and require effective administrative action at all times.  Appointments to advisory Boards and Commissions are made by the Village President with the advice and consent of the Board of Trustees. Additionally the Board of Trustees exercises responsible leadership by (1) critically examining and regularly reviewing Village policies, programs, and operations; (2) assuming the role of community opinion leaders and; (3) generating public support for Village programs and services.

The Board meets at 6:30pm on the first and third Monday of each month.  As of March 2, 2009, the Board meetings are held in the New Village Hall building located at 2 Community Boulevard (Board Room on the 2nd floor). The new building is located just west of the old Village Hall. The address of the old building is, 255 West Dundee Road.  Workshop meetings are held  the second and fourth  Monday of each month.  Please check the agenda for more information.

Residents or interested parties can make arrangements to speak at a Board meeting. Sign in is before the meeting and each speaker will be given 5 minutes to speak on issues related to Village business.
