Happy New Year. We had a great 2014 – With our improved communications, revitalized website, town email updates and quarterly updates via U.S. Mail, our outstanding team in Stacey and Tammy was recognized by receiving the Texas Municipal League’s 2014 Excellence in Communication Award.
We also adopted a sustainable balanced budget that positions us with realistic resources to revitalize our infrastructure without incurring debt. Kudos to our citizens; we had the highest voter turnout in the metroplex in November at 52%.
In 2015, we are looking forward to accelerating our street revitalization program. Our rural country vistas are a bragging point, and we want to improve our roads to make travelling our countryside as peaceful as the view. A goal for 2015 is “community.” We are looking forward to bringing back many town and community events. Lastly, we plan to continue the solid town communications and sharing of information which will bring our community closer together.
There is much to be proud of in Bartonville, a great community that continues to maintain its rural heritage and lifestyle in these changing times.
