The Burton City Council will consider the appointment of another new member at its meeting Tuesday.
After swearing in new councilmember Paul McLaughlin at its meeting in December, the council will look to appoint Macey Tidwell to the City Council Position Five. Prior to the appointment, the council will consider accepting the resignation of current Position Five Councilmember Buck Oliphant.
Also at Tuesday’s meeting, the council will reconsider several items tabled at its previous meeting, including action on a mobile home ordinance variance for either behind 610 North Colorado Street on Trinity Street, or for 12832 West Burton Street. A Burton resident is seeking a variance to the ordinance and asking for approval to move into a brand new mobile home at one of the two locations.
Councilmembers will also revisit discussion on an amendment to the city’s animal control ordinance limiting the number of cats and dogs residents could own.
The council will also consider:
- Hiring Jason Jaster as a contractor for mowing, edging, and shredding of city properties.
- An order of election for May 1st, as well as an election services contract between the city and Washington County and an interlocal election contract and agreement between the city and Burton ISD.
- An ordinance establishing policies and procedures for all electronic funds transfers.
- Applying for the Texas Department of Agriculture Community Development Block Grant 2021-22.
- Accepting the engagement letter as submitted by Medack and Oltmann, LLP to perform the annual audit of the fiscal year ending March 31st.
The council will meet Tuesday afternoon at 5:30 p.m. at the Burton Volunteer Fire Department Station #2, located at 1687 FM 1697.
