Greetings from Bartonville!
Fall came to Bartonville in a hurry this year! It seems that overnight we have gone from hot and dry to cool and wet!
With the record setting rain in September and October, please be sure to clean out any debris that may be blocking your driveway culverts. Keeping these driveway culverts clear helps ensure the best waterflow which increases the longevity of our roads as well as minimizing flooding. A little attention and prevention can go a long way and the forecast is for a wetter than normal fall and winter.
A big thank you to everyone that attended and contributed to the success of the National Night Out at Bartonville Town Center on October 2nd. The Town had its largest turnout ever and we look forward to making next year’s event even better.
ROAD ALERT: Much needed road reconstruction is underway on Rockgate Road and will be finished mid-November. After that, we begin work on Dove Creek Road from Gibbons Road to Noble Champions Way. No thru traffic will be permitted on Dove Creek Road until the project is finished in early January 2019. Please seek an alternate route. Thank you in advance for your patience while this project is completed.
The Town has received an application from Tractor Supply to construct a new store on the northwest corner of Hilltop and FM 407. The Planning and Zoning Commission will review this request on Wednesday, November 7th followed by the Town Council on Wednesday, November, 14th. Both meetings will take place at Town Hall and have a start time of 7 p.m.
Reminder: The regular Town Council meeting is Wednesday, November 14th instead of Tuesday, November 20th due to the Thanksgivings holiday conflict. Town Hall will be closed in observation of Veteran’s Day on Monday, November 12th, as well as November 22nd—23rd for the Thanksgiving holiday.
The days are getting shorter and the leaves are turning. A good time to remember that Daylight Savings Time ends on Nov 4 (fall back one hour). Always a good time to remember to check your chimneys and test your smoke detectors.
This month we also celebrate the Veterans of this great land. To those of you who have served or are serving, thanks to you and your families for the sacrifice. Lastly, with fall upon us, we begin to think ahead to the holidays. This is a good time for fall clean up and donations to the local charities and food banks.
