Letter: Park locals say "go" elsewhere PDF Print E-mail

I am writing in response to your article on the front page of the July issue regarding FM park improvements. What the article didn't go into was the fact that most residents who live near Rheudasil Park DO NOT want a restroom built at Rheudasil Park. The mayor held an informational community meeting in November, where several residents spoke about not wanting the restroom built. My husband attended the town council meeting when they approved the bathroom being built and stated that  approximately 40 people spoke against the bathroom and maybe three spoke for it. I wish the town would reconsider this. I feel that the bathroom would be an eyesore and a potential area for criminal activity. Rheudasil Park is a small park and most people who go there are residents who live nearby and have bathrooms in their homes. Please ask the residents how they feel about this issue. On the other hand, I am pleased to hear that there are plans to dredge the pond and improve the sidewalks.

The Double Oak Town Council welcomed Bartonville residents with kindness and respect again as they gave their input about contracting their police protection out to Double Oak at their regularly scheduled Town Council meeting on July 21. After patiently listening as Del Knowler spoke in favor of it and several citizens, including former Mayor Ron Robertson, spoke against it, they voted to discontinue discussions with Bartonville Town Council with the following statement, "Your town is split and your council is in shambles." Some Double Oak council members said that they had known and respected Ron Robertson and his work for the town of Bartonville for many years. They said they would not go forward unless the current town council can come to a unanimous vote to contract out their services.

We've been hearing that our town can't afford our own police department. We've been hearing that our town can't afford to defend itself when a wealthy water company sues it three times. But is that really the case? Maybe we should take a closer look at where Bartonville finances really are.

The purpose of my comments is to lead to a better Bartonville. To that end, Bartonville needs its elected officials to use the powers and duties of office to lead to a better Bartonville, not to achieve any personal agenda, interest, vendetta or will.

“I just want to preface any interview with: I give credit to the Lord Jesus Christ for allowing me to be in this position to serve.  And I feel it is an honor and a privilege to serve the citizens of Denton County in the way that I serve.” So says Denton County Precinct 4 Constable Tim Burch.
