July is Smart Irrigation Month!

North Texans are encouraged to tune up irrigation systems to avoid over watering landscapes during the hottest summer months. July is Smart Irrigation Month which is a public awareness effort to promote efficient outdoor watering at a time when people typically water lawns more frequently. The campaign highlights the need to repair broken sprinkler heads and pipes, audit outdoor use to avoid water waste, install rain sensors, and utilize technology and tools to use water efficiently.

Governor Abbott Mandates Face Masks in Public Spaces

Gov. Greg Abbott issued a nearly statewide mask mandate Thursday, July 2, 2020

But it provides several exceptions, including children who are younger than 10 years old, people who have a medical condition that prevents them from wearing a mask, people who are eating or drinking and people who are exercising outdoors.

The mask order goes into effect at 12:01 p.m. Friday.
