The Burton City Council held off on hiring an ordinance compliance officer at Monday’s meeting.
Council members said they would need to discuss the matter further, and gather more information before voting. The ordinance compliance officer would work on an as-needed basis, and would have knowledge of state requirements and laws pertaining to the enforcement of ordinance.
Concerning the movement to approve a 20 mile-per-hour zone on South Main Street, City Secretary Angel Weyand informed the council there was no need to have multiple readings of new items, as per the Texas Municipal League. This made the agenda item null and void. The item had already been approved at May 14’s meeting.
Other items included the restatement of Nathan Kalkhake as sergeant-at-arms, as well as discussion over review and organization of ordinances. The mayor had no new information to report to the council.
