Local Boards & Committees
The Village is governed by a 6-member Board of Trustees and a Village President who are elected to their positions on an at-large basis and serve two-year terms. In addition, the Village is served by an Administrator, appointed by the Board, who serves as chief operating officer for the Village and manages its day-to-day activities as well as the policies set forth by the Board.
Numerous boards and commissions, composed of civic-minded residents and business leaders who volunteer their time and expertise, study issues of interest to the Village and make recommendations to the Board. However, Saukville's biggest asset is the people who live here - warm, friendly, neighborly people. Saukville is a good place to live, an ideal place to raise a family, and a great place to call home.
