Village of Long Grove Government
The Village of Long Grove is governed by a president and six trustees, all of whom are elected at-large and serve four-year terms. The Village Board establishes policy and is responsible for the quality of life and the investments we have in our land and homes. The Village is also served by a Village Clerk, who is an elected official and also serves a four-year term. All elected officials, board and commission members volunteer their time and receive no monetary compensation. The Village, in its effort to maintain an open space, low density and environmentally sound community, does not and could not provide the urban services of a city. Long Grove provides public road maintenance, snow plowing, police protection, planning and zoning protection and many other community programs. The Village of Long Grove, as one of the goals of the community from the time of incorporation in 1956 does not levy a real estate tax, nor charge special fees.
