Message from the Mayor
I invite everyone to discover the Village of Ballston Spa, known as “A Village of Friends." Rich in history, the Village has undergone a renaissance in recent years with a rebirth of its business districts and an inviting array of family activities offering fun for all ages. It is our hope that you find this web guide to government services in Ballston Spa useful. Whether you’re a native to the Village, a new resident or a visitor, we invite you to enjoy the spirit of family and community that enriches the quality of life in Ballston Spa.
John Romano, Mayor
About: Village government is headed by the Mayor and four Trustees. Together they form our local legislative body, the Board of Trustees. The Mayor and the Trustees are elected at the March Village election. Both the Mayor and the Village Trustees serve four-year terms.
Mayor: John P. Romano
Board of Trustees:
The village is operated with money from real property taxes, a share of Saratoga County's sales tax, a variable amount of state aid, and other sources. When the board meets early each year to establish the budget, it also sets the property tax rate.
