BURTON CITY COUNCIL TO CONSIDER BUDGET APPROVAL FOR NEW FISCAL YEAR

  

The Burton City Council will meet Tuesday to approve and establish the budgets for the upcoming fiscal year.

The council held a public hearing earlier this week on the general and water and sewer budgets.  No one from the public offered any comments during the hearing.

The city’s proposed general budget balances at $285,575, while the water and sewer budget estimates $200,563 in revenue and expenditures.

The council will also consider approving cancellation of the city’s general election on May 4th, with all running candidates remaining unopposed.

Also in session, the council will consider post-closure on the city’s solid waste site owned by Doug Collins. The item was tabled at the council’s meeting last month, as city staff wanted to investigate the area thoroughly.

Councilmembers will also look at rendering null and void an ordinance variance granted last month to Charlene Patterson. The variance was to allow her to place a new manufactured home at 12305 East Hickory Street.

A new variance, if granted by the council, would allow her to place a new home on 12208 East Branch Street, with a letter from the property owner granting permission and guaranteeing all trash and debris would be removed before September 19th.

The council will also consider assigning the city’s appointed proxy or the proxy committee to vote for nominees for Bluebonnet Electric’s Board of Directors.

The council will meet Tuesday afternoon at 5:30 p.m., at Burton City Hall.
