Welcome to the Village of Burnham! Mayor Robert Polk

Thank you for visiting our website and we hope you will enjoy learning about the many attributes that make our small town so special.

The Village of Burnham has launched a new website and we are excited to announce that the site includes a new layout and design as well as several features aimed at making it easier for users to access government services and information.

Key to the new site is its responsive design, which means the site is resizable for any screen, including any mobile device.

“It’s a new era in website design,” said Mayor Polk.  “We knew going into this effort that not only did our website need to have an updated look, it also needed to accommodate mobile web users.  More and more people are accessing Internet content from mobile devices, leaving designs based on desktop screen widths a thing of the past.”
