Democracy is a government of laws. Good democracy requires not only good laws, but laws which are readily available in written form to all who are subject to them, to the public officials and police officers who must administer them, and to the judges and attorneys who must interpret and apply them. It is for this reason that the Village Board of Wales adopted a Code of General Ordinances. The Code represents a contribution of the Village Board to the democratic and efficient administration of the government and affairs of the Village of Wales. After a new ordinance is approved, it is posted in three public places and made part of the Village Code.
The Village Board meets on the 1st and 3rd Monday of the month at the Wales Community Building, 216 W. South Street. The meetings starts at 6:00 p.m. unless otherwise noted in the posted agenda.
