Local Government
North Lincolnshire Council is our principal unitary authority, responsible for most major services including most roads. It sets the domestic rate including a precept for the cost of running each parish/town council which have lesser powers. Barton Ward has three elected Conservative North Lincolnshire Councillors, presently Keith Vickers (633951), Paul Vickers (637622) and Jon Evison (07976276895). The adjoining unitary authority is North East Lincolnshire Council.
