Boards & Commissions

In order to operate the village at peak efficiency, we rely extensively on residents to volunteer and serve on various boards and commissions. Many people may want to volunteer for such service, but may not know how or what their own background or experience might be best suited for. The village currently has 9 active boards and commissions which are listed on this site. For more information regarding serving as a volunteer on any board or commission email Village Hall or call them at 414-962-6690.

Remember this is your community. Help make it work. If you are interested in volunteering please fill out the application and return to Village Hall.
