VICTOR GOVERNMENT CONSISTS OF TWO SEPARATE ENTITIES...
The township is governed by an elected Supervisor and four Council positions serving four-year terms. Other elected officials include Court Justices, Town Clerk and Highway Superintendent, all serving four-year terms.
Town government also includes appointed positions, departments, boards, committees and commissions, giving residents many opportunities to be directly involved at a level of government closest to them.
A strong sense of community exists within the Village as is evidenced by the work and activities of our various governmental boards and agencies. Although these groups provide direction and leadership, their policies are implemented on a day-to-day basis by a cadre of highly skilled and dedicated employees in our Village Office and Department of Public Works.
