The Village of Old Field is governed by a Board of Trustees consisting of a Mayor and four Board Members (one of whom is appointed as Deputy Mayor) elected for staggered two year terms.  Each of the four Trustees also holds a position as a Commissioner.  The  Mayor and Trustees serve without compensation.  Annual elections take place on the third Tuesday of March at the Village Hall (Old Field Lighthouse).  Every registered adult resident is entitled to vote.

The Board of Trustees enacts all Village ordinances and regulations, passes and implements the annual budget, authorizes the disbursement of Village funds, oversees the operations of Village government, conducts hearings on specific matters, and confirms the Mayor’s appointments of residents to the Village Boards and Committees.  All appointees to these Boards and Committees serve without compensation.

The structure, composition, and operations of Village government is governed by New York State Law and the Village of Old Field Code.  Complete information concerning relevant state laws may be secured from The New York State Conference of Mayors and Municipal Officials at www.nycom.org.

Notices for all meetings and hearings (whose time and location are subject to change) as well as other matters which by law requires public notice are posted in the newspaper of record for the Village of Old Field, The Village Times, at Village Hall, on notice boards throughout the Village, and on this website under Village Meetings.
