IMPORTANT --- NOVEMBER 11, 2017 1:14 PM - Reports are coming in that parents of Burton Elementary students are receiving calls from Burton Village via BurtonAlert, stating that there has been a sewer backup at the Elementary, and that their students are being evacuated to Berkshire Jr/Sr High School. THIS IS FALSE. THERE IS NO SEWER BACK UP, THERE IS NO EVACUATION, THERE WAS NO MESSAGE SENT FROM THE VILLAGE OF BURTON OR BERKSHIRE LOCAL SCHOOL DISTRICT.
Celebrate Arbor Day with us! Saturday, October 14, 2017 -- 10 am to noon in the Village Park. Free tree seedlings, while supplies last!
Burton Village Trick or Treat will be held on Tuesday, October 31, 2017, from 6-7:30 pm. All residents wishing to pass out treats should leave their porch (or exterior) light on. Parents: Children should not visit homes that do not have porch (or exterior) lights on.
ATTN: VILLAGE RESIDENTS - YARD SIGNS - ALL TYPES -- Please note that all signs must be on the "yard" sign of the sidewalk in front of your house (vs. the "street" side of the sidewalk, which is the Village Right Of Way), or, if you have no sidewalk, signs must be placed at least 15 feet from the edge of the road into your yard. All signs in the Village Right of Way will be removed.
ATTN: BURTON VILLAGE BUSINESS OWNERS: All temporary-type signs (sandwich board type signs, or signs on metal rods) must be taken into your establishment each evening. You may place them outside again in the morning.
Emergency Notification System (not the same as Geauga Alerts!)
Burton Village’s new emergency notification system, Burton Alert, enables you to receive, at no extra charge*, informational messages from the Village in the event of an emergency. The information sent through Burton Alert is intended to help keep you informed should the Village experience a significant event such as a water main break, boil alert, public health emergency, weather emergency, etc. Messages may cover such subjects as safety alerts and directions on what to do; the location of a shelter; evacuation orders; debris removal information; and the Village’s response to an emergency. You can receive either a phone call or text message to a designated number, AND an email.
Sign up forms will be included in the August/September Newsletter, as well as in the August water bills. Forms will also be available in the Village Office soon. Plans are for the new system to be live on October 2, 2017.
