Saranac Lake Board of Trustees
The Village Board is elected by village residents. Each member serves a four-year term. The Board makes up the legislative and governing body of the Village of Saranac Lake.
The Village of Saranac Lake is governed by a Mayor, elected at-large, and four Trustees elected to serve. In 1929, the Governing Body passed a charter ordinance moving day-to-day operation of the Village's functions to a professional Village Manager while still allowing the community to continue electing the Mayor and Trustees to pass legislation.
Village Board Meetings are held on the second and fourth Monday of each month at 5:30pm. Additional meetings may be held as needed. The meetings are being held virtually in order to limit person-to-person contact. Contact the clerk at email@example.com or (518)891-4150 ext. 202 with any questions.
The meetings are run with a public comment period, which gives anyone the opportunity to address the board. Individual public comment is limited to 2.5 minutes and may be shortened by the meeting chairperson. The Village Board Meetings work to address routine business, and special board action items. A public comment is meant to encourage resident comment and the expression of opinion, not a direct debate, nor should a commentator be intimidated by a village board rebuttal.
The Village Board is an elected governing body for the Village of Saranac Lake. Village Board seats are up for election every four years, with positions paired and staggered to allow for an election every two years.
The next Village election is on March 16th, 2021, 12PM - 9PM in the Auditorium of the Harrietstown Town Hall. The entire Village is in Election District 1.
The Board of Trustees designate the following office as vacant at the time of the Village Election for the following term:
