If you are new to Independence County, welcome!!! If you are looking to move to Independence County, let me say, you are welcome!!! Independence County is a great place to live, and I’m honored to be elected the County Judge. It is my mission to provide efficient and effective government to all citizens to insure public trust and confidence. It is also my goal to provide efficient and high quality public service that improves the quality of life and prosperity of individuals, families, business/industry and communities as a whole throughout Independence County.
Our County takes pride in being progressive and is often considered as a leader in developing services and programs to benefit its citizenry. As an example, we, in association with the City of Batesville and Lyon College, are in the process of constructing three small hydroelectric projects at old U.S. Corps of Engineers Dams on the White River. Power from these plants is being sold to the Clarksville Light and Water and revenues from the power sold will be used to retire the debt, provide operation and maintenance, project reserves, and a benefit payment to be shared by the County, City, and the College.
