The Village of Golf is a “Home Rule” community governed by the Illinois constitution and its Village ordinances (you can read our village ordinances, including our building code, at www.sterlingcodifiers.com/Golf,IL). The Village has long had a volunteer government (trustees and the Village president receive $1 per year and the Village Clerk and Treasurer receive a modest monthly stipend). With our small population (453), limited number of households (171) and no businesses, at one time or another a significant portion of Village residents will be called upon to serve the community.
The Village Board of Trustees meets on the second Monday of each month at the Village Hall. Agendas are posted on this website and on the bulletin boards at the Post Office and around the Village. The six Trustees function like department heads with one taking on responsibility for a different aspect of Village government including the Emergency Services Department, Administrative Department, Public Buildings and Grounds Department, Financial Department, Water Department, Sanitation Department and Streets & Sidewalks Department. You can see the specific, current assignments in the table below.
We also have a part-time Village Administrator who handles much of the day-to-day work of your Village government. You can contact Bob Der Avedisian at firstname.lastname@example.org or give him a call at 847-998-8852
If you are interested in serving in some capacity, please let Bob know and he will pass it on to the Village board.
