The Starke County Council and Commissioners are looking for local residents who want to serve as appointees on various boards and commissions in 2014.

“The board of commissioners and the county council reorganize, and part of that reorganization includes appointments to various boards. We do try to advertise those. We do try to solicit extra folks out in the community to participate on these boards. We’re looking for good, qualified people,” Norem said.

President of the Commissioners Kathy Norem says the criteria for the various positions varies.

“A lot of these boards do require specific party affiliation under the Indiana Code, so when we posted these on the county’s website most of them do include a link to the Indiana Code that lists all of the requirements of the Indiana Code, the appointment process and what the function of those boards are. You might want to take a look at that,” Norem said.

Norem says the deadline to express interest in a county appointment is quickly approaching.

“If anybody’s interested in any of these boards, we ask that they submit their letters of interest to the Starke County Commissioners or the Starke County Council. You need to send them to our county auditor Mrs. Chaffins. The deadline is at the close of business on Friday, Dec. 27,” said Norem.
