He bested challenger Lisa Curatolo by a vote of 394 to 310. Millar stressed his experience and efforts at flood mitigation during the campaign.
He also talked about investigating the idea of funding EMS service by billing the insurance of people who use the EMS calls.
"We would like to look into whether they can bill or not and whether they can supplement what the village currently pays. Currently the village pays out of village tax payer money about $150,000," said Mayor Millar.
