Childrens Services Board

Boone County's Children's Services Board is a result of the 'Putting Kids First' coalition's 2012 successful effort to secure funding through a ¼ cent county-wide sales tax. The Board is composed of nine Boone County residents. Of particular importance is that Board members demonstrate experience in one of the following areas: Mental health, healthcare administration, administrative experience with a governmental or social service agency, a former eligible service recipient or a guardian of a former eligible service recipient, legal experience, accountant / finance. The Board, in partnership with the Boone County Commission, is charged with making Boone County a better and healthier community through the provision of services to protect the well-being and safety of children nineteen years of age and under and their families. The Board will maximize positive outcomes in a transparent, accountable fashion, recognizing that Boone County taxpayers are both stakeholders and beneficiaries of this program.
