Village Council Liaison Assignments

The Village of Estero is governed by a seven-member Village Council. Although Council members must live in their representative districts, they are elected at-large by all Estero voters and therefore represent all residents of the Village. The mayor is not directly elected but rather selected by Council members each year, along with the vice mayor. All Village Council members dedicate more than 20 hours a week to designated areas of strategic concern and liaison assignments. If you are interested in a particular issue — be it roads, schools, conservation or something else — it is most effective to contact the Village Council representative assigned to that area.
