The Village of Elk Grove Village operates under a Council-Manager government. The utilization of this form of government allows the Village to benefit from both the strong policy leadership of elected officials and the professional administrative skills and experience of the Village Manager.
Registered and qualified voters in Elk Grove Village elect a Mayor and six Village Trustees for four-year terms to determine the level and cost of Village services and to establish codes and ordinances to guide and protect the development and use of property within the Village. The Mayor and Board of Trustees meet in the evening on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month to discuss, consider and act on policy matters. The meetings are held in the Charles J. Zettek Municipal Building at 901 Wellington Avenue and are open to the public.
