Village seeks feedback regarding budget

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing measures, the Williamsville Village Board will offer virtual meetings open to the public and access to listen to a board meeting via telephone.

Although the meeting format has changed, the Village Board wants the public to know that feedback is still requested regarding the 2020-21 budget.

The Village Board is expected to approve the proposed budget during its meeting on April 27. Per state law, the village must approve a budget for its next fiscal year by each May 1.

Anyone with budget-related questions or comments can email Keaton DePriest, director of community development, at All feedback will be forwarded to the Village Board for its review.

Additionally, the board will not close the public hearing on April 13; instead members plan to leave the hearing open until April 27  to allow more opportunity for the public to comment and review video of the meeting.

Feedback related to the budget may be emailed to DePriest until 8 p.m. Friday, April 24.
