It is with great pleasure that the Onondaga County Soil and Water Conservation District names the Town of Van Buren as our Municipal Partner of the year. When considering candidates for this award the District looks for a municipality that vigorously pursues the maintenance of their Stormwater Infrastructure using preventative methods as well as innovative projects that further this goal. Additionally, the District grants the award to a different partner each year in the hope that it becomes a goal for each municipality to aspire to in order to make our local roads safer for the traveling public and to continue to improve our stormwater management efforts.
