Fence Repairs

If you have a PID-6 fence on your property and have allowed vines or other plant material to grow over it, please remove it promptly. It is impossible for us to properly maintain the fences when they are covered with any type of plant material. We are planning a clean-up of all PID-6 fences and will begin repairing/repainting in the near future and if you value the plant material that covers the fence, it would be best for you to remove it yourself rather than have us do it for you.

Schedule for repair week of 10/20/2014 – 10/24/2014:
  • Glen Canyon Rd. to Mormon Tr. on east side Park Vista - remove all damage 1x6 picket and 2x8 cedar top cap, repaint 2,020 feet 6ft wood fence.

Website Master Plan for Parks and Community Services

Code Compliance

The City of Fort Worth Parks and Community Services Department is in the process of preparing the 2015 Parks, Recreation and Open Space Master Plan. The Plan will serve as a guide for the planning and development of the Fort Worth park system for the next five to ten years. Moreover, the Plan will provide strategic direction to ensure that the existing park system is presenxed and protected and the future park system is effectively planned and efficiently developed. Most importantly, the Master Plan enables the Parks and Community Services Department to set priorities in a holistic, proactive and prudent manner to ensure the sustainability of City’s present and future park system.

The City of Fort Worth has experienced tremendous growth since the current 2004 Master Plan was adopted, and it is important that the 2015 Master Plan reflect the needs and interests of the city’s diverse and growing population in order to senre our citizens in the coming years.

Website Ebola Virus Situation

Code Compliance

The City of Fort Worth’s Office of Emergency Management is monitoring the situation that has recently been reported concerning the first human case of ebola virus disease in Dallas County. The Tarrant County Public Health Department is taking the lead locally in this case.

“We are closely monitoring the Ebola case in Dallas. There are no cases or known contacts in Tarrant County at this time,” said TCPH Health Director Vinny Taneja. “We feel confident that residents in our community are safe. Our team will continue to seek out the most updated information so we can to ensure the health and safety of everyone in Tarrant County. We intend to relay that information to the public through our website at www.tarrantcounty.com” Taneja said. “We are prepared for any changes in the situation.”

BulletinTCPH has compiled a bulletin of useful information on ebola. You can find more information on the website and in the bulletin.

Website West Nile Virus

Code Compliance

On August 21, 2014 we were informed by Tarrant County Public Health (TCPH) there has been a confirmed West Nile Virus (WNV) positive mosquito sample. The positive mosquito sample was collected from the central area of Arcadia Trail Park.

It’s extremely important that residents continue to reduce the mosquito population by removing mosquito habitats from your property and to remind your neighbors.

We want to remind you that the most effective means of protection, even more protective than spraying, is to stay focused on the reduction of the mosquito population:

  • Please check your yard for standing water in empty flower pots, pet bowls, toys, etc.
  • Maintain your swimming pool.
  • When you’re outdoors, remember to wear repellent that contains DEET
  • Wear clothing with long sleeves and pants when applicable.
  • Avoid being outdoors during dawn and dusk when mosquitoes are most active.

Water Scam Alert

Residents Warned To Be Wary of Persons Posing as Water Department Employees

The Fort Worth Water Department advises residents to be suspicious of individuals posing as Water Department employees via the phone. This week the department received several complaints from customers indicating they were called by people posing as water employees. In all instances, Spanish- speaking customers were targeted.

All cases involve a man calling a customer to request payment for an overdue utility bill. The customer is told to get a money pack card from a local retailer for the specified amount and to then call a certain phone number to make the payment. Customers were also told they had a very short time frame to do this or the water would be disconnected. Individuals falsely claiming to be city employees are committing fraud.

Residents should call 817-335-4222 immediately to report the incident to the Fort Worth Police Department. The Water Department would also like to be called at 817-392-4477 to be made aware of these occurrences.

The only phone number to call for making payments to the Fort Worth Water Department is 817-392-4477. The secure system is automated and payment information is not provided to a live individual. The water department uses door tags to provide 24-notice to customers when water service is scheduled for disconnection for past due balances.

Guidelines Suspicious Activity Awareness

It can be difficult to determine when to report something suspicious. People most familiar with a given environment are in the best position to determine whether or not something is out of the ordinary. Use common sense and read the guidelines.
