Incorporated Village of Shoreham


Policies and Guidelines

  Updated 4/25/18


Note that some of the Policies and Guidelines listed are "resolutions." A resolution is a simple form of legislation passed by the Board of Trustees and expressing the sense of the Board or declaring a policy.  A resolution is narrower in its scope and import than a Local Law, but it can set policy that can impact the residents of the municipality.  Therefore, the Village has listed here and linked to this page resolutions previously passed and currently in force.[1]
