    PAW PAW - A former Van Buren County administrator has been selected to return to his former position, following  the retirement last month of  former County Administrator Douglas Cultra.
    Van Buren County Commissioners, during a Committee of the Whole (COW) meeting Tuesday afternoon, named John Faul, current Kalamazoo County Deputy Administrator, to fill the seat left vacant by the April 30 retirement of Cultra. Faul  was selected from an initial field of 14 candidates, which commissioners then narrowed  down to five.
       Faul has served as Kalamazoo County Deputy administrator since  2008. Prior to that, he was Van Buren’s County’s administrator from 2000 to 2006. Before that, he was director of planning and land management for the county through the Michigan State University Extension office.
    In January, Faul announced his upcoming retirement from Kalamazoo County, effective July 28.
        During the Board of Commissioners meeting, Van Buren County Commissioner Chairman Richard Godfrey  texted Faul about being offered the  post.
    Faul replied, “Excellent. I look forward to working with the county.  Just let me know the next step, and I’ll be there.”
        The board is expected to take formal action on Faul’s hiring at its next regular meeting in two weeks. Following that, commissioners will then negotiate a contract with Faul.
