No action was needed by the Burton City Council on Tuesday to finish repairs at the flag poles on Highway 290.

The council was to consider an item for a supplemental bid from Hepler Services in Round Top to complete the flag pole repairs, but removed it from the agenda after learning that Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative had approached the city and offered to sponsor the repairs.

The cooperative had already sponsored the original installation of new flag pole lights for $1,250, and is now choosing to sponsor the installation of new wiring for the lighting for $950.

In other action Tuesday, the council approved an interlocal election contract and agreement between the city and Burton ISD, for the Burton School Board election in May.  In addition, councilmembers tabled an item to convey property at the end of East Branch Street and the road formerly known as South Colorado Street to American Kinetics Inc., citing the need for further information.  The item was also tabled at their previous meeting in December.

Mayor David Zajicek presented his formal notice of resignation to the council, after announcing last month he would step down effective March 8th.  In his letter, he said it was an honor and a privilege to serve the City of Burton, and thanked the council for its support.

  1. Burton needs to look into this area or east hickory st. as a tie into 290 east on the south side of 290 we already have the overpass that chappel hill & brenham wants to prevent crashes at crossoversin thier areas, make this happen then take out the crossover at east mulberry st. & the ugly light poles txdot installed, this would eliminate most of the danger issue of entering & exiting 290 east or west into Burton.
