Under the Illinois statute for villages, the governing body was the Village Board of Trustees, with the chief executive officer known as the village president. On April 24, 1890, Wheaton incorporated as a city with an elected mayor and council members, serving from wards.  -- from History of Wheaton, City of Wheaton website
