From the Village President
Whether you're a long-time resident or a newcomer, I'd like to thank you -- on behalf of myself, the Board of Trustees and the Village Manager -- for being a part of the Glenview community. We are very proud of this Village; we believe that it is one of the finest residential communities in the Chicago metropolitan area.
This website is designed to help you navigate Village services and "all things Glenview." Government works best when all of us are involved, and this website is a great place to start.
We hope this website will become a regular and trusted resource for you -- but always feel free to call the Village Manager's Office at (847) 904-4370 with any additional questions you might have.
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.
