Village Board of Trustees

Board of Trustees

The legislative body of a village, the board of trustees, comprises the mayor and four trustees. The board may increase or decrease the number of trustees, subject to a mandatory referendum. The general powers of the board of trustees are outlined in Village Law 4-412, which provides that:    "In addition to any powers conferred upon villages, the board of trustees shall have management of the village property and finances, may take all measures and do all acts, by local law, not inconsistent with the provisions of the constitution, and not inconsistent with a general law except as authorized by the municipal home rule law, which shall be deemed expedient or desirable for the good government of the village, it's management and business, the protection of its property, the safety, health, comfort, and general welfare of its inhabitants, the security of their property, the preservation of peace and good order, the suppression of vice, the benefit of trade, and the preservation and protection of public works. The Board of Trustees may create or abolish by resolution offices, boards, agencies, and commissions and delegate to said offices, boards, agencies, and commissions so much of its powers, duties, and functions as it shall deem necessary for effectuating or administering the board of trustees duties and functions.  


The Village Board meets on the 1st Monday of each month at 6 PM in the Waddington Municipal Building.  If there is a holiday on Monday, the Board Meeting will occur the following day, Tuesday. Minutes & Agendas are available online.

The public is welcome to attend all meetings.
