Frank Hardester will be the next county administrator for Van Buren County. The Van Buren County Board of Commissioners has approved a contract with Hardester to take over effective June 1. He’ll replace John Faul, who will transition into a new position as the Palisades Project Director in July. Hardester has worked in Van Buren County government for 25 years, and has been the county court administrator for seven years. Van Buren County Board of Commissioners Chair Richard Godfrey says Hardester will “bring comprehensive technical experience along with a strong background in management and human resource principles.” Godfrey adds the new admin “is a recognized court leader and has collaborated with local, regional and statewide stakeholders on a variety of projects.” He says the county board looks forward to working with Hardester.
