About the Board

The Village President and Board of Trustees of Howard are responsible for establishing an annual village tax rate, approving an annual budget, setting all formal village policies, and establishing the strategic direction of the village. The village president serves a three-year term and is responsible for making appointments to numerous boards and commissions and for chairing the Village Board meetings.

The trustees each serve two-year terms. The trustees for Districts 1, 2, 7 and 8 (or the outside wards) are elected in the spring of odd years (2021, 2023, etc.) The trustees representing Districts 3, 4, 5 and 6 (or the inside wards) are on the spring ballot in even years (2022, 2024, etc.) You can identify your ward and representing trustee by locating your address on the Village Ward Map.
