The Village Board of Trustees is comprised of six Trustees who are elected to four year terms. Elections are held in odd numbered years such that the six Trustees are elected on a staggered basis, with three positions elected every two years. The Village Trustees, along with the Village President, make certain decisions to maintain and enhance the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of the Village of Glen Ellyn. These decisions include, but are not limited to, matters of Village finances including the approval of the annual Village Budget;
approval of contracts; responsiveness to citizen concerns; establishment of, and variations to, building, zoning, subdivision and traffic codes; and establishment of license fees and other charges. Trustees also serve as Village Board liaisons to the various other standing Boards and Commissions. Each Trustee receives compensation of $20 per month. By community tradition, Trustees serve one, 4-year term of office.
