To effectively run a county we need members of our community to get involved. A great way to be an integral part of the county is to become a member of a Committee, Board, or Authority. Different committees discuss different topics and make decisions that help the county run smoothly. All applications are forwarded to the committee(s) requested for review. Upon the committee's recommendation the application is forwarded to the Van Buren County Board of Commissioners for final approval and appointment to the committee. If no appointment is made, the application is held for a year in lieu of an opening on the committee(s) requested. Please see the "Apply to be on a Committee" page linked below.
