City Council picks police expansion plan and tables restaurant patio again
The Burleson City Council chose a police department-expansion plan and tabled Old Texas Brewing Company’s patio-improvement application at Monday's meeting.
Council’s chosen police department-expansion plan will cost approximately $41.5 million after Burleson voters approved a $36 million general-obligation bond to fund the police department-expansion in 2021.
Old Texas Brewing Company’s proposed right-of-way agreement includes improvements to its patio area on parking spaces in front of the restaurant. Council chose to table the item after discussing it until Old Texas Brewing Company proposes another agreement with necessary changes.
