General Council Information

The Village of Marvin is chartered as a Mayor-Council form of government and is governed by a Mayor and a four member Council. A nonpartisan election for Mayor is held every two years. Council elections are also nonpartisan and all seats are at-large. Council members are elected for four year terms. The terms are staggered.

The mission of the Council is to represent public interest, to promote efficient, courteous response to residents' concerns and to provide leadership and direction for the Village’s future and to ensure fiscal integrity of the Village.

Village Council meetings are typically held the second Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at Village Hall, although some meeting dates have been changed due to conflicts (see meeting schedule).  The public is invited to address the Council at every regular meeting for 3 minutes on any topic. A sign-up sheet is available prior to the regular meeting if you would like to address the board.

A Council work session is typically held the last Thursday of the month at 9 am at the Village Hall.
