New edition of Burnside City Council eases into 2013


Burnside —

Jones described the area as “where Lakeview Drive runs behind Guthrie’s River House, to where it comes back on U.S. 27 at Pitman Creek,” an area with about 150 homes and several businesses.
“Everyone over there thinks it’s in Burnside (as it is),” said Jones. “You’ve got city on the back side of it, city on the other side. It’s a triangular-shaped section of ground that we pretty much cover anyhow.”
Jones said the appeal for the city is additional tax revenue, and the city taxes would be offset by a reduction in insurance premiums for those annexed in.
“It’s been talked about ever since I cam remember,” said Jones. “Everyone thought it was part of Burnside on the lake and all that, but it just never did get brought in.”
