Plans and Reports

In 2020, the Village adopted a Comprehensive Plan for the year 2040:

Each year, Village staff develops a budget, which is then reviewed and adopted by the Village Board. This budget is a planning document that directs project management and dictates where monies will be spent. The Village’s budget year runs from May 1 through April 30.

The Village also releases a Comprehensive Annual Financial Report each year. This report is required by the Governmental Accounting Standards Board, and provides an overview of the financial statements according to generally accepted accounting principles.

Safe and reliable water is a top priority in Northfield. The Village works closely with our water providers to ensure that Northfield residents have the best water possible from Lake Michigan. Below are links to the annual Water Quality Reports:
