Ad-Hoc

Ad-hoc committees are advisory groups comprised of subject matter experts and other interested residents that the Village Board formally invites by way of resolution to engage in research and discussion focused on producing written recommendations for the Village Board surrounding a particular community interest.

Such committees generally receive a time-bound charge with specified deliverables; their work is important in helping to shape regulations and to inform new program development. Unlike standing volunteer boards, councils, and committees, an ad-hoc committee is automatically disbanded upon completion of its charge, or once the committee’s specified expiration date has passed without Village Board extension.
