Village Board

The Village of Sussex operates under the laws of the State of Wisconsin as a village and uses a village president/board form of government. The Village Board appoints a full-time Village Administrator who directs and coordinates the Village's operations and services on a day-to-day basis.

Village Board Members: The Village President, elected at large for a three-year term of office, together with six trustees elected at large for three-year staggered terms, comprise the Sussex Village Board. The Board serves as the legislative branch of village government, enacting ordinances and resolutions, approving the annual budget, setting policies and taking other actions to guide the operations of the Village. Elections are held on a nonpartisan basis in April of each year, preceded by a February primary if there are more than double the candidates running for the seats available.

The Board regularly meets on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 6:00 pm in the Sussex Village Hall. Special meetings are also held when required. All meetings are open to the general public, although on occasion, the Board may meet in closed session to discuss a subject permitted by the Wisconsin Open Meeting Law to be held in closed session (e.g., personnel evaluations, labor negotiations or other strategic matters).

Public notice is given of all meetings, including closed sessions, with the notice stating the date, time, location and topics to be considered. All meeting notices are posted on the bulletin board located inside the lobby of the Civic Center and on the Official Notices page of the Village web site. Along with an agenda, there may be copies of proposed ordinances, resolutions, reports and other supporting documents available for public review at the Village Clerk's office prior to each meeting.
