The Village Board is the local legislative body, consisting of the Mayor and four Trustees. Board members are elected in the November general elections and serve a term of four years.
The Village Justice, also elected in the November general elections for a four year term, presides over the village court which settles criminal, civil, small claims, parking, vehicle and traffic cases that occur within the Village.
The Village Board selects a Village Administrator with responsibility for directing Village operations, including those of the Fairport Municipal Commission, and for serving as budget director, zoning officer and public safety officer.
Serving under the Village Administrator, and appointed by the mayor with Board of Trustees approval, are the clerk/treasurer, deputy clerk, deputy treasurer and building inspector/fire marshall. Their duties are described in the Village Operations section of this Web Site.
Village citizens can serve on a number of boards that make decisions affecting our community. E-Mail the Village Board and tell them about your interests and experience. Board members are appointed by the Mayor with approval of the Trustees.
