     There are 6 members on the village board plus the village President.
Each board member serves a 2 year term and must be 18 years old to run for
office. 
To run for the board a person must be nominated at the caucus and win, not
tie, 
in the election. Mayor Eveland feels that our community must be satisfied
because they elected the same board back and there aren't too many people
who attend the meetings with any type of complaints. He also feels the board
is a conservative group that will move ahead on any project that will improve
our village. The board is always trying to be aware of any federal or state
aid available for any of our community projects. A good example of this is
when the village applied for Federal aid for the new fire station and was
-ranted the full amount, $ 330,000.00 
     Barneveld is a community that is rapidly expanding with new house plots
being sold throughout the community. With Barneveld expanding in all directions,
our town board will acquire much more importance.With the new Village President
and our very experienced trustees, Barneveld will be allowed to expand at
any 
pace with many improvements being added by the board to make Barneveld a
much 
better place to live.
