The Igiugig Village Council, which is also known as the Tribal Council, is responsible for handling the governmental activities of the Village in addition to maintaining and overseeing the Village's general well-being and continued existence.
The Council meets on a monthly basis to discuss the issues of importance to the Village - these meetings are always open to the general public, and public input and ideas are welcome and accepted at all Council meetings.
The main responsibilities of the Village Council are to oversee and maintain Village infrastructure assets, including the community water and sewer, electricity, and roads. The Village Council ensures fuel, gasoline, and heating oil are delivered to residents in a timely manner. The Council works together with the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) to provide residents with other general tribal activities, including social service programs and adult vocational/continuing education classes.
For over 25 years the Igiugig Tribal Council has published a monthly newsletter called "Igyararmiut Qallemciit" (formerly "Igiugig News & Notes"). To view copies you can go to the Igiugig Newsletter Archive where you will find all of our newsletters dating back to 1991.
