FYI:

Repaving on Kittelson Drive to start later this week in Burlington relating to Phase BU-1B

The Souris River Joint Board and construction teams wanted to notify residents living on Kittelson Drive of repaving that will be starting on Thursday, August 12th, 2021. As a part of the Mouse River Enhanced Flood Protection Plan a new storm sewer was installed beneath Kittelson Drive, this work requires reconstruction of the road and repaving to occur. Phase BU-1B began last year and is scheduled to be completed September 2021.

For residents on Kittelson Drive and immediate area please be aware of the construction and equipment working in that area. Keep in mind, moving vehicles and entering or exiting the roadway may have some restrictions or delays. Anticipated paving will occur sporadically for the next 10-14 days.

Thank you for your continued patience.

Burlington, N.D. - The Souris River Joint Board and construction teams wanted to notify residents living on Grace Street of curb work that will be starting on Monday, August 2nd, 2021.

For residents of Grace Street this means you will want vehicles you need to utilize be parked on the street and out of your garages and driveways. Once construction starts you will not have access to driving over your curbs for 5-7 days.

As a part of the Mouse River Enhanced Flood Protection Plan a new storm sewer was installed beneath Grace Street. The existing curb & gutter and pavement needed to be removed and replaced in order to do this work. Phase BU-1B began last year and is scheduled to be completed September 2021.

With a huge regret, the splash pad will be closed for the rest of the summer. With the construction that is going on in the area, the facility can’t keep it a safe and sanitary place for the children of our community.

At a special Council meeting held Wednesday night, the Council made the tough decision to ban the use of all fireworks within City limits, during the normal allowable date of the 4th of July 2021 per the Ordinance Section 11-115 #3. Due to the excessively dry conditions and high winds that make it desirable for a fire to ignite, and for the safety of all our residents, we are asking that you abstain from the use of any and all fused fireworks this year.

In the event that the city receives a substantial amount of rain between now and then, the City Council will call a special meeting to reconsider the issue.

(Just so everyone is aware, there is also a current Fire emergency and restrictive burn ban County level, which was passed March 16, 2021 until October 1, 2021. The ban cites abnormally dry conditions and high winds. The ban includes fireworks, recreational burning, garbage/pit burning, burning of farmland and more. The ban does not include grills or commercially sold fire pits, as long as they are on a hard non-organic surface and are at least 15 feet away from dry vegetation when in use. Violators could face up to 30 days in jail and a $1,500 fine).

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter...Have a safe & happy 4th of July weekend!

There will be a special meeting on June 30 at 5:30 regarding fireworks in the city limits this year.

The Ward County Commission this morning decided to follow the Burn Restriction we already have in place that states if the Daily Fire Index is in either Very High, Extreme, or a Red Flag Warning has been issued, Fireworks are not allowed.

Media Release

Re: Outdoor Warning Sirens

Beginning May 10th, Minot Central Dispatch will begin running regularly scheduled audible tests for the Minot Area Outdoor Warning System as well as the sirens within Ward County. These tests will be run on the second and last Monday of each month at 9:30 AM. The audible tests will continue through the summer months and are scheduled to conclude in October.

There will be one variation to the regular schedule in May when the last Monday of the month falls on the Memorial Day Holiday. To avoid any interruption to the Memorial Day ceremonies on May 31st, the test will be run the next day on Tuesday, June 1st, at 9:30 AM.

During the regularly scheduled tests, residents will hear ten second High/Low tones followed by a voice message given over the public address system. The tones and message will be repeated three times. The cable TV interrupt system will also be tested as the outdoor warning system audible test is being sounded.

The city of Burlington is trying to increase our taxes by 47%. Our police department makes way too much money for a small town. The council likes to spend our money freely. There is a meeting Tuesday night at 7:30 at City Hall come and speak up if you don’t want your taxes to go way up!!
This guy keeps coming around South Davis St in Burlington. Any idea where he lives?
Missing: Pewter. We think he snuck outside this morning. We live at 310 grace Street in Burlington. He's never been outside before. He's a gray long hair cat with big paws, a houndstooth collar, and he's declawed on his front claws. Please call Haley if you've seen him at 701 871 3023
Our all white cat with one blue eye and one yellow eye may have wandered off this afternoon if anyone has seen her around... We are on the corner of 1st and Railway.
This dog keeps coming by our house and won’t let me catch him. He’s been by multiple time for the last couple weeks. I’ve watched him almost get hit by a car twice now. If anyone knows his owners he’s heading towards the railroad tracks right now.
Found. Will be checking with the Pet Vet in the morning about the tags on collar. He is safe with us until we find out any information from them.
Is the splash pad open yet?
Now this is just pure ignorance! Come on!! A LOT of siding in the compost dumpster now on top of the bags I took out the other day. Some people are disappointing. 😤
Took some grass clippings to the compost site, and was pretty disappointed to see a few bags of clippings and branches. I took the bags out and dumped them and threw them away. But lets not ruin a good thing people!
I keep hearing the whistle go off across the tracks from A1 electric, but I can't hear a word they're saying... What's going on? Just testing?
Special Council Meeting Thursday May 7, 2020 4:00pm Dead End /No Outlet Sign Ordinance
Update: he has been found! Lost dog! Male chihuahua wandered away from home in the trailer court this afternoon. His name is PeeWee. He may not respond as he is 17 and partially deaf.
