The Village of Belleville operates under the Village form of government as outlined in the Wisconsin State Statute. Our village government consists of the Village Board, which includes the Village President and Six (6) Trustees that appoint and supervise a variety of Boards, Commissions, and Committees, and other administrative and supervisory personnel, including the Village Administrator. 

This form of government is the council/administrator form of government. This is the most common structure of local government in the U.S. Under this form, the residents of Belleville elected the Village Board to adopt legislation, set policy, and create Village-wide goals. Each Trustee is elected at-large and sits on various committees and commissions. The Village Board then hires the Village Administrator with the executive authority to carry out the policies and objectives and oversees the Village's day-to-day operations.
