Fifth hour english and social studies class, Barneveld High School, Barneveld, WI / Barneveld community profile
Government, pp. -17 ff.
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.
