Greetings from Bartonville!
Hard to believe spring is ending, schools are entering summer break and summer is almost here.
The election results are in! Council members Jeff Traylor, Clay Sams and Josh Phillips were all re-elected and will each serve another two-year term. I would also like to welcome Dr. Bridget Melson to the Town Council, she will serve one year for the remainder of the unexpired Place 4 term. Thank you residents! We are so proud that the Town of Bartonville continues to have one of the highest voter turnout rates in Denton County.
Hometown Heroes Wall Dedication
The dedication ceremony for Our Hometown Heroes Wall has been rescheduled to Tuesday, June 11th at 6:30 p.m. This dedication ceremony will take place at Bartonville Town Hall. All are encouraged to attend to honor the memory of Bartonville residents who gave their lives while actively serving in the Armed Forces.
Curbside Hazardous Waste Program
The Town Council has approved a new monthly curbside household hazardous waste program at no cost to our residents. Due to Texas Environmental Quality Commission regulations, collections cannot start until mid-July. Please be on the lookout for a postcard and details on the Town’s website regarding how to take advantage of this great new service.

Lastly, with the 4th of July quickly approaching, please remember that fireworks are permitted within the Town of Bartonville on your personal property ONLY if it is a Denton County Burn Day.
