Village Board - Agendas, Minutes & Audios

The Salem Lakes Village Board is the legislative and governing body of the Village.  Within the Village of Salem Lakes are hamlets, namely, Salem, Silver Lake, Trevor, Camp Lake, Wilmot and a small section of Bristol.  The seven-member board is responsible for establishing policies to protect the health, safety and general welfare of Salem Lakes residents.  Village Ordinances and certain sections of WI Statutes establish the specific duties and powers of the Village Board.  Exercising their legislative powers, the Village Board adopts ordinances and resolutions to establish policies and programs and to provide public services and facilities primarily for the Village. The Village Board considers major problems facing municipal government and guides the growth and development of the Village in a manner that is consistent with public interest.

The Regular Board Meeting is held on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month at 6:00 p.m. The meetings are streamed live on YouTube for your viewing. Past meetings may be reviewed here also. If you have any questions, please call the Clerk’s Office at 262-843-2313.
