Governance in the Village of Glenview
Glenview operates under a council-manager form of government. The Village President and six Trustees are elected at-large (i.e. they do not represent particular wards or areas of the Village). A given term is four years and there are no term limits; Trustees may run for re-election as often as they choose. Village elections are held every two years in April.
The President, with the concurrence of the Trustees, appoints the Village Manager, responsible for implementing Board policies and handling day-to-day operations, as well as members of the various Commissions (Appearance, Historic Preservation, Natural Resources, Plan and the Zoning Board of Appeals) responsible for overseeing and regulating different aspects of the Village.
