Water/Sewer payments are due by Dec. 21, 2018.  Payments received after that date are subject to a 10% late fee.

*Please note: The Board of Public Affairs recently updated the Rules and Regulations to state that any water and sewer bill not paid by the due date (a delinquent account) AND with a balance of $500 or greater will have services shut off 10 days after falling into a delinquent status.  Payment plans are available to anyone who is having trouble paying their water/sewer bill.  If you are making regularly scheduled payments on a payment plan, your account is not delinquent.   

Meeting Change:  Burton Village Council will meet on Monday, December 17, 7:00 pm, Burton Public Library, Large Meeting Room, 2nd Floor.  This meeting takes the place of the December 10 and December 24, 2018, regularly scheduled Council Meetings (both canceled).

Burton Alert

Burton Village Emergency Notification System (not the same as Geauga Alerts!)

Alert SignBurton 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.

You can apply on-line by downloading the Burton Alert Sign Up Form, complete it, and press the "Submit" button on the form.

*Individual text charges may apply depending on your mobile carrier.
