The Village of Mukwonago is governed by a Village Board. The Board makes decisions regarding most Village matters, including the Village budget, capital improvements, ordinances and hiring of employees.
The Board consists of a Village President and six trustees and is non-partisan. Trustees are elected at-large, rather than by district. Elections are held every year on the first Tuesday in April. Each board member is elected to overlapping two-year terms, with the Village President and three trustees elected one year, and the other three trustees elected the following year.
The Village Board meets every first and third Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm. They meet in the Board Room located on the second floor of the Village Hall located at 440 River Crest Court, off of CTH ES about one mile west of the intersection of CTH ES and STH 83.
In 2015, the Village President and three (3) Village Trustee seats are up for election. The general election will be April 7, 2015. If a primary is needed, it will be February 17, 2015.
