Meeting notices are posted on the Village website, on the Village Cable channel, on the meeting board at the front doors of Village Hall, and at the Community Library. Copies of resolutions and ordinances that have passed recently are posted in the Village Hall lobby bulletin board, at the Community Library, and on the Village Website. Minutes for meetings are not posted until they are approved, which is generally at the next meeting date. Once they are approved, they are also posted using the same means at the resolutions and ordinances. All public meetings must be noticed including Village Board and Village Committee and Commission meetings. Notices must be posted at least 24 hours in advance, but our goal is to post further in advance.

Yes, staff of the Department are all Notaries. There is no fee, and you do not need to be a resident of Germantown to use our services. Please note: Do not sign the document before bringing it in front of a Notary Public. Notaries need to witness you signing the document for them to be able to notarize it. Please also bring a Government Issued Picture ID.
There are a few ways to vote absentee. The first is to submit a request in writing (email counts) that you would like us to mail you an absentee ballot. When you make this type of request, please make sure you provide your name, address, date of birth, where we should mail the ballot, and which elections you would like to vote absentee for. You can also complete the form and mail it to us or fill out the request through MyVote through this link. For each method, you are going to be asked to provide a photo ID in order to receive a ballot. There are excepts to this rule so please read the absentee voting application carefully to see if you qualify under those exceptions.
You can also vote absentee at Village Hall for the dates announced for each election, which will generally be the two to four weeks prior to the election. Please note that per state statue, there cannot be voting at Village Hall on the day before or day of any election.

The answer is, it depends. Business applications for licenses for things such as cigarettes, coin operated machines, and anything related to alcohol (including Operator Licenses) are generally due in mid to late April. The "year" for these licenses runs from July 1 to June 30. In order to get proper notices, approvals, and background checks done, we need to receive the forms well in advance. Mobile home licenses are also on this type of schedule. Animal fancier licenses and direct seller licenses are on a "normal" calendar year schedule.
These forms can be found here.
In addition to our Village Board of Trustees, the Village has several other citizen committees. These include the Library Board and Plan Commission. If you are interested in serving on any of these, please let us know. Additionally, if you are interested in the possibility of helping with elections, let us know of that as well.
Both of these above listed opportunities come with an application that must be filled out before being considered. These forms can be found here for the Citizen Committees and here for poll workers.
All Village Board meetings are open to the public, and residents are welcome to attend. Most Village Board Meetings are video recorded, and the recordings can be accessed through the Village Website. Those recordings can be found here. Additionally, meeting minutes will be posted once they are approved, which normally takes place at the next regular meeting.
