BURNET — The City Council during a brief meeting Tuesday named several appointments to government boards. Also, city officials have announced a format change for utility bills.

Meanwhile, Paula Bundrant was appointed to the Burnet Housing Authority to fill the unexpired term of A.B. Daugherty.

“I think we ought to appoint her — she’s a good person,” Councilman Paul Shell said.

The council also re-appointed three members of the Planning and Zoning Commission — Jim Roberts, George Laudenschlager and Bret Burton. The Board of Adjustment saw four members re-appointed to its board — Joy Taylor, Johnny Henderson, Dale Myer and Steve Newton. Also, the council appointed Tasha Lowe and Chad Nelson to the Economic Development Corp. board of directors.

The council also approved a resolution for the EDC to purchase land from the Burnet Municipal Airport at U.S. 281 and John Kelly Street for airport improvements and a site for a proposed fire station.

In other news, the city has changed its format for issuing utility bills.

Beginning in March, the Utilities Department will switch from its current postcard-style bill to letter size, officials said.

The new format will show electric and water usage during the year as well as the previous month’s bill, and also include a newsletter.

There will not be any change to the timing of the billing or the due dates, officials said.

For more on the change, call the city at (512) 756-6093. The council next meets 6:30 p.m. March 9 at council chambers, 2402 S. Water St., which also is the air museum at the municipal airport on U.S. 281.
