Snow Removal

Please remember to keep your sidewalks clear of snow. Also try not to push the snow into the roadways. We do our best to clear the streets in the Village in a timely manner. Please keep in mind this is a one machine crew. As a result of clearing the streets, your driveway may need some extra shoveling. This is an unfortunate side effect so you can drive down the street. We appreciate your patience and help during this process.

Paying your taxes in 12 monthly installments is an easy way to avoid paying a large property tax bill in July.

Village of Barnwell CAO

On November 25, 2019, The Village of Barnwell would like to welcome our new CAO, Rachel Schortinghuis.
Rachel is no stranger to the Village of Barnwell staff. From 2013-2015 you would have seen her enthusiasm and her smiling face as she was in the Village Office under the tutelage of Wendy Bateman.
Rachel and her husband Kris have raised their 4 children in the community for the last 13 years, where she has been an active member and spent many hours volunteering her time.
We look forward to having Rachel and know that she will be an asset to our team.
