The Clay County Council has a lot to discuss during their next meeting on Monday. The main discussion will circle around the new budget plan for the Van Buren Fire Protection District. This fire district has been newly formed to accommodate the current budget limitations that the department has set 40 years ago. Also the new district will also allow the Van Buren Volunteer Fire Department to hire full time employees. This would greatly improve response time to emergency situations. The meeting will be Monday October 19th at 6pm.
