In accordance with the "Rules of Procedures for Village Board of Trustees Meetings" (adopted 02/16/99), only the Village Board (Mayor and four Trustees) may add an item to the agenda. If you wish, you may discuss the issue with any Board Member (Mayor or Trustees) prior to the meeting and request they authorize adding the item to the official agenda.

11. How may I get a copy of a Village Board meeting agenda and/or documents related to agenda items? Copies will be provided to the public prior to the meeting, to the extent practicable, upon request to the Village Clerk who can be reached by telephone (315/769-8625 Extension 232) or by e-mail (villageclerk@village.massena.ny.us). Charges consistent with current Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) may apply.
