Greetings from Bartonville!
Hard to believe school is back in session and fall is quickly approaching. Please be mindful of our children and school zones.
Thank you to all the citizens of Bartonville for your feedback regarding speed limit discussions. It is the consensus of our residents and the council that there will not be any speed limit adjustments. Every day we are thankful and appreciate the active support and open communications in our town.
Here are a few things to look for in September:
- The bids for the reconstruction of Dove Creek Road from Gibbons to Noble Champions and the overlay of Rockgate will be reviewed and awarded at the Town Council meeting on Tuesday, September 18th. Construction will begin shortly after the bids are awarded.
- Construction of the new 7-Eleven is underway on the southwest corner of I.T. Neely and FM 407.
The Town is proposing to adopt the same tax rate as last year, $0.19294 per $100 valuation; which is one of the lowest property tax rates in North Texas. The adoption of the tax rate and budget for the new fiscal year starting October 1st will take place on Tuesday, September 18th at 7 p.m.
Please be sure to mark your calendars for the evening of Tuesday, October 2nd for the annual National Night Out event at the Bartonville Town Center. This is a great opportunity to interact with the Bartonville Police Department and your fellow residents.
Lastly, wasn’t it great to see the much-needed rain in August? As such, please fight mosquitoes by being mindful of any standing water. Conversely, we are still in a drought, so please be aware and follow all outdoor burning and watering restrictions. Further information regarding both can be found on the Town’s website.
