The Village of Belgium prides itself on its rich heritage as well as the community efforts to work together in making this a place in which people want to live.  We are a very close community with a desire to constantly improve the quality of life for the residents.  If you would like to become more involved please consider serving in public office as a Village Trustee, Village President or member of the Plan Commission or Zoning Board of Appeals.

The office of Village Trustee offers a great opportunity to serve the community in which you reside and gives you a direct role in helping to implement change to improve your community.  The Belgium Village Board meets on the 2nd Monday of every month and occasionally at other times throughout the year.  Committee meetings are scheduled as needed with the expectation that they will try to meet once a month.  Committee appointments are made by the Village Board, at the recommendation of the Village President, annually in April following the election.

 

Village Trustees are elected in the spring election for two year terms.  Three seats are up for election every year.  Village President is elected for a two year term in the spring election on odd numbered years.  For more information on running for election to the Board of Trustees or Village President please click the links:
