Greeting from Bartonville,
I am very proud to announce that the Town Council approved a new program to honor Bartonville Veterans who gave their lives while serving in the Armed Forces of the United States of America. A wall has been dedicated in the lobby at Bartonville Town Hall in honor and memory of Bartonville’s fallen veterans.
Plaques will be permitted for those that lost their lives while serving in the armed forces and that were at the time, or had previously been, a Bartonville resident. The 8 x 10 plaque will include a 5 x 7 photo with three lines of print to include the service person’s name, branch of service, and years of service.
The first veterans to be honored through this program will be:
Sgt. Michael Medlock, age 28, was assigned to the Marine Medium Tiltroter Squadron 774, died while serving in January 2016; and
Capt. Mark Weber, age 29, was assigned to the 38th Rescue Squadron, was killed in a helicopter crash in Anbar Province, Iraq in March 2018.
For additional information on the program please contact Bartonville Town Hall at 817-693-5280.
After a rollercoaster winter, spring is right around the corner. Daylight saving time begins March 10. This is a good time to check the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
And with spring? We think Spring Cleaning! It is almost time for the Bartonville Annual Spring Clean Up & Recycling Day. This fun event will be held Saturday, April 13, 2019, from 8 a.m. to noon, at Lantana Community Church. FREE to Bartonville residents, this event helps us dispose of those challenging items such as furniture, fencing wire, tree limbs and branches, etc. There will be document shredding, computer crushers, and a Goodwill donation truck. Household hazardous waste will be accepted by registration only. You may register at www.townofbartonivlle.com/HHW or call Town Hall at 817-693-5280. Please note that we are not able to accept concrete, any appliance with Freon, medications or televisions. Medications can be safely disposed of at the kiosk inside Town Hall. Information regarding the disposal of televisions can be found on the Town’s website.
Rockgate Road and Dove Creek Road from Gibbons to Noble Champions repaving is complete. Due to the recent wet weather, we are going to delay the repair of the bar ditches until they can dry out and be operated in without the heavy equipment creating more ruts.
New businesses are coming to Bartonville. The renovation of the Bartonville Store is nearing its completion and Tractor Supply has begun construction on the corner of Hilltop and FM 407. Tractor Supply should be open by the end of summer.
Going on a Spring Break vacation? Don’t forget to register a close patrol request with the Bartonville Police Department at www.townofbartronville.com. This service is free of cost to residents.
