On June 11th, we dedicated the Bartonville memorial wall in the atrium of our town hall honoring members of our community who died while on active duty of the US armed forces. We strive to remember the sacrifices of our residents and their families.
We are excited to announce that the “new” Bartonville store opens its doors this month. The iconic Bartonville Store has been invigorated as a farm-to-table retail market and restaurant featuring a deli, full bar, whole-meal replacement carry-out, and Jeter’s Meat Market (a grass-fed, grain-finish Prime meat butcher shop featuring Texas-raised Wagyu Beef from the Rosewood Ranches along with other high-quality meats such as pork and chicken from other local ranches).
One hundred and eighty pounds of pills were collected at the Bartonville Police Department on Saturday, May 4th during National Drug Take Back Day and turned over to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, DEA, for disposal by incineration. Year-round, there is permanent collection box that the public can use to dispose of medications at the Bartonville Police Department. A great opportunity to dispose of old or unused medicines to protect yourself and our drinking water.
The Town held its annual Spring Clean Up Event on June 1st. Residents were able to safely dispose of trash, metal and tires, shred documents, and donate goods. Thank you to Council members and to all of the volunteers that made this great event possible. A special thank you to the Lantana Community Church for allowing us to host the event in their parking lot and to Waste Connections for donating the food and beverages provided to the volunteers!

On April 21st, the Town Council approved a 5-year tax note in the amount of $1,440,000 to fund the 2019 Residential Street Program and awarded the bid for construction. This large-scale project is a part of a 20-year plan that the Council crafted last year with input and guidance from the Town Engineer. Over the next 20 years, the Town will be investing over $8,000,000 into our roads.
After serving the Town for several years, Brian the Animal Guy has accepted full time employment with another agency. For his replacement, the Town Council has approved a service contract with All American Dogs. They will continue to provide the same great service. For wildlife and animal service calls, they can be contacted at 972-382-3647.

Have a great summer. Stay hydrated.
