The Mayor is elected for a term of four years, and is technically the Village President of the Board of Trustees, as is provided by state statute.

Even though this is not a full time position, he is the chief executive officer of the village and presiding officer of all regular and special meetings of the Board of Trustees and at all times when the Board of Trustees meets together as a committee of the whole.

The Village President shall preserve order and decorum in meetings of the village board, and shall decide all questions of order, subject to an appeal to the village board, without debate. Whenever there is a question as to the respective powers or duties of any appointed village officer, this shall be settled by the village president; and he shall have the power to delegate to any such officer any duty which is to be performed when no specific officer has been directed to perform the duty.

The Village President also serves as the Local Liquor Control Commissioner.

Mayor Watson.
