The governing body for the Village of Pinckney is the Village Council. The Council is composed of six Trustees and the Village President elected by voters of the Village. Meetings are held on the second and fourth Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in Village Hall, in the Council Chambers (lower level). Enter the Chambers through the rear lower level door.
The public is welcome to attend meetings. Public Forum is the time for citizens to voice their concerns and opinions on Village matters. Council opens Public Forum at the beginning and end of each meeting, with a five minute time-limit for each speaker. Council Rules are here.
In 2009, an ordinance was enacted to allow the Village Council to serve as the Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA). ZBA bylaws can be found here.
The Council encourages residents to speak with individual Council members as well. The current Trustees are:
- Rebecca Foster – Council President (email)

- Ted Kinczkowski (email)
