The Warrensburg Fire Department is looking for volunteers. If interested, contact any member of the department for information or stop by the Fire House any Thursday evening.

Attend a Village Board of Trustees meeting to learn what is happening in the Village and discover if you can be an active participant in making a difference in this community. Meetings are the 1st & 3rd Mondays at 5:30 p.m.

2 persons are needed for the zoning board committee. This committee meets on an “as needed” basis whenever building or remodeling within the Village doesn’t meet the zoning code and an exception or variance is requested.
