Councilmembers will consider performing the annual audit of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2019, submitted by Medack and Oltmann, LLP. They will also look at accepting the 2017-18 Washington County Appraisal District audit, and appointing a committee member from Burton to the 2019-20 appraisal district budget committee.
Also on the agenda, the council will consider approving a contract from GeoSouthern Energy Partners, LP, for an oil and mineral lease on the wastewater treatment plant property.
The council will also look at post-closure maintenance on the city’s solid waste site, owned by Doug Collins. The property used to be the city dump over thirty years ago, but is now privately owned. The property has refuse appearing above ground, and it is the city’s responsibility to handle the situation.
Councilmembers will also consider an amendment to the unsafe building ordinance established last year, stating that any designated city employee or elected official can be the code compliance officer.
The council will also view a set of road closures for upcoming events. It will look at closing North Railroad Street between West Texas and West Washington Streets, for Ranger Day on March 16th. In addition, it will consider entering into an agreement with the state to close a segment of the state highway system for the annual Cotton Gin Festival.
The city will also consider an annual loan, regarding Burton State Bank’s financing of a 2018 Chevy Tahoe police vehicle purchased last February. City Secretary Angela Harrington said the balloon payment of the 12-month loan is due to be refinanced.
The city council will meet tomorrow afternoon at 5:30 p.m., at Burton City Hall.
