Saranac Lake Board of Trustees
The Village Board is elected by village residents. Each member serves a four-year term. The Board makes up the legislative and governing body of the Village of Saranac Lake.
The Village of Saranac Lake is governed by a Mayor, elected at-large, and four Trustees elected to serve. In 1929, the Governing Body passed a charter ordinance moving day-to-day operation of the Village's functions to a professional Village Manager while still allowing the community to continue electing the Mayor and Trustees.
Village Board Meetings are held the second and fourth Monday of each month at 5:30pm in the Village Board Room, 39 Main Street (2nd floor of the Town Hall). Additional meetings may be held as needed. Contact the clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 518-891-4150 ext. 202 with any questions.
The meetings are run with a public comment period, which gives anyone the opportunity to address the board. Individual public comment is limited to 5 minutes and may be shortened by the meeting chairperson. The Village Board Meetings work to address routine business, and special board action items. A public hearing is meant to encourage resident comment and the expression of opinion, not a direct debate, nor should a commentator be intimidated by a village board rebuttal.
