Friday Greetings,

This week, delineators were installed on Armour Road to restrict westbound motorists on Armour Road from turning left onto Buchanan, and establishing right turns only onto Armour Road from northbound Buchanan. This action was approved recently by the City Council, at the recommendation of staff that felt that the current alignment was creating a safety concern.  The Burlington Corridor Complete Street Plan calls for extending the median currently in the vicinity further to the east to accomplish these same traffic congestion measures. The delineators will be replaced by the median when the Burlington Corridor Complete Street project begins in the next few years.

New Employees:

o Police Cadet Brandon Keeton began working for the City on January 2 and will attend the Police Academy in February.  

o Casondra “Casey” Campbell will join the City as the Human Resources Manager and on February 4.  Casey succeeds Jan Gall, who is officially retiring on January 18, but who will continue to work for the City in a part-time capacity until Casey is on board and fully trained.  


Tuesday, January 15 is the last day for City Council candidate filing.  On Thursday, January 17 at 2 p.m. in the City Council Chambers the City Clerk will conduct a blind lottery drawing to determine the order that candidates will appear on the April ballot. 

The last Christmas tree pickup will be Wednesday, January 16. Trees must be devoid of tinsel, lights, and all items not originally part of the tree.  Place trees where you put yard waste.
