City Council issued two proclamations at last night’s meeting (9/15) recognizing September as both Prostate Cancer Awareness Month and Live United Month.

Prostate cancer survivor and representative from the North Texas Prostate Coalition Bill Pfeiff was on hand to accept the proclamation for Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, which brings attention to a disease that is diagnosed in 1 in 9 American men, with African American men at the highest risk with a rate of 1 in 6 men. Carrollton Parks & Recreation Director Scott Whitaker was also present to talk about his experience with prostate cancer and to encourage all men over the age of 45 to get annual screenings.

Gary Henderson, Executive Director of the United Way of Denton County accepted the proclamation for Live United Month, which celebrates the work done by the United Way to address the needs of the Denton County community, including feeding those who face food insecurity; preparing children for success in school, work, and life; and connecting those in crisis with resources to pay bills and stay in their homes both during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.

Members of Carrollton Texas Fire Rescue have been hard at work helping out fellow Texans and neighboring Louisianans in the wake of Hurricane Laura. They joined other local cities and organizations with the Texas Division of Emergency Management to help with victim rescue and damage surveying leading up to and after landfall.

Emergency Management Coordinator Elliott Reep has also been working alongside staff from Farmers Branch City Hall to support Richardson Today shelter operations at two large hotels set up at the request of Texas Division of Emergency Management. This is part of an agreement among the cities to support regional shelter operations. So far these shelters have provided a safe place to stay for over 700 guests and numerous pets. Shelter operations continued over the Labor Day weekend.

Evacuees seeking sheltering assistance should call 1-888-991-5229. Many Carrolltonians have asked how they can help. The Red Cross is accepting donations at redcross.org, 1-800-RED CROSS, or by texting REDCROSS to 90999. To volunteer with he Red Cross, visit redcross.org/volunteertoday.

09/04/2020

Dallas County Health and Human Services released an update yesterday downgrading the COVID-19 risk level from Red (Stay Home, Stay Safe) to Orange (Extreme Caution). The downgrade comes as a result of the diligence from Dallas County residents who have been following the public health recommendations, as well as a reduction in hospitalizations, ICU admissions, and deaths over a 14-day period. Dallas County Health and Human Services recommends that residents continue to wear masks, maintain social distancing, and avoid high risk situations in order to continue the downward trend in COVID-19 cases.

In an attempt to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the White House authorized the CDC to temporarily halt residential evictions nationwide through Dec. 31 for individuals who have lost work during the pandemic and have no other safe housing options. Residents needing to invoke the order must fill out a declaration form and provide a copy to their landlord/property owner. These persons are still required to pay rent and follow all the other terms of their lease and rules of the place where they live.

Happy Birthday to Jimmy Porter (September 3)! 🎂

Porter (1900-1984) was a beloved resident who shared his love of baseball with generations of Carrollton kids through coaching. Any child, black or white, boy or girl, got into a Jimmy Porter game because the coach only had one rule: everybody gets to play. He was often seen walking along Carrollton streets with bats and gloves over his shoulder and a crowd of kids following him to an open field for a pick up game.

His legacy is honored through the naming of Jimmy Porter Park and the Carrollton Texas Parks & Recreation’s Jimmy Porter Award, which honors an outstanding volunteer from any of the recognized Carrollton youth sport leagues. To read a former resident’s article remembering Jimmy Porter, visit: https://ahumanistsperspective.wordpress.com/2014/02/01/remembering-jimmy-porter/

Excited to announce: At last night’s meeting City Council approved a new budget and set a reduced property tax rate for the seventh year in a row.

The FY 2021 budget, effective Oct. 1, lowers the property tax rate from the prior year's rate of $0.589970 to $0.5875 per $100 assessed value.

While some residents may see a higher tax bill due to increased property values in Carrollton and the overall DFW area, as well as bills passed from the State level, the reduced tax rate aims to help offset taxpayer costs as much as possible.

The City aims to continue to use taxpayer funds efficiently and effectively, and has policies in place to keep the rates as low as it can.

Early 80's Recycle video I did for the city.
Nobody responds to app ‘reports’. Is there an issue with responding? Thanks.
Apparently your IT department has no clue how to make your websites work. I logged in to see my water & sewer bill but the PDF files cannot be accessed. I can't pay if I can't see my bill. It is 2020, this is NOT rocket science. Hire someone who knows how to make this stuff work. 🤬🤬🤬
Just forwarding something that was sent to me and that I agree with. Gentlemen, This is a petty issue, but one that may have a deeper root I would like to comment on and have explored. On 8/7/2020, I received a citation on Hebron from an officer Van Winkle for failure to use my signal. I am ok with this as I am guilty as charged. I did the deferred plan, paid the fine, no big deal. Glad we have that in place. What is the concern was what caused that and the lack of the officer willing to “look past” a minor violation while totally missing the bigger issue… of which leads to my questions below. He was nice, very polite and represented Carrollton Professionally as I like to see. Good hire as far as I’m concerned. He was young, may be a rooky, have not checked. But I was left with the impression this was almost like a “quota” he was required to fill, and by darn, he is going to write tickets against our citizens for anything he can and there is 0 tolerance.. My pull over was a bird in the hand vs true enforcement. Short explanation is I was heading home from McDonalds about 8:30pm… Kids Friday night treat during these “at home” days. Was in center lane, going 40. I usually go slower than posted on hebron and have since the day it was widened in the 90s. Its rough and lots of traffic it and I have also spoken out on lowering the speed on hebron to 40 in the past due to heavy accidents into property/persons that may have not been as bad if things were just a little slower. So speed was not even an issue. I was in center lane and came upon a car that was previous in left lane a good bit ahead of me that moved to center… as I got closer I was taken by surprise as the car was doing about 20-25mph. I was at 40. Instead of slamming on brakes and throwing the kids McDonalds over the truck, I had to kind of abruptly get over…. Apparently I did use my signal there. As I passed it was a person on the phone looking at other things vs the road. Ok.. no big deal, see it all day. I am guessing the officer missed this… As I got over pretty abrupt from her impeding slow speed, I came up on providence or a street close to there… of which looked to have someone ready to turn out that may have thought I was in the center lane… so as a defensive safety move, I immediately went back to center lane in case they were going to turn out. Officer van winkle said this is where I failed to signal. He is probably right, its not a mental note I set in concrete, so I can’t argue.… However… when he pulled me over and I tried to explain the situation…. He wanted no explanation.. It was just ticket for me…. Ignoring what was a driver who had become a hazard on hebron for the slow speed and lack of attention, giving my no leniency for actually avoiding traffic hazards in two lane changes… one lane change I guess I did not signal.. Hey this happens. First time in years. I’m ok with that…… Happens to us all right? Needless to say, my kids treats were ruined from the time of the stop, but that is my issue… What I am concerned about is the underlying root of this. The questions and explorations I have are; Are we pushing officers to “perform” by writing as many “extra tax” tickets against our citizens for petty violations vs protecting and serving? Are they being rewarded with better hours, promotions and recognitions for what they generate in fines, leaving officers who are more tolerant to have worse hours and possible overlooks on promotions? Are we wanting a “Type A” force vs a community asset? Is this balance affecting crimes against property/citizens and other aspects in our city as officer’s role is more of a tax collector vs to “protect and serve”? As some of you know, I have been dead against our past and what is remaining motor cycle unit. They projected a self-serving bike “mob” entity within the city that was only out for their own existence… And they obtained that by grabbing it from our citizens over the most minor infraction. I can honestly say I have never been pulled over by any of them….so my opposition was strictly on the image they portrayed and the feedback from very respectable citizens voicing concern in my area. I had personally witnessed acts by the bike group like riding on sidewalks, pulling hard stunt moves to “go get the bad guy”…. Passing me at a 50+ mph different on our streets to go after the “bad guy”…. This was the worst “against the people” image I have ever seen in my almost 4 decades here. I am glad we balanced that part down…. Are we in a financial situation that requires us to up the level of fines vs due to possible lacking projected income due to corona causing ad valorem loss ,etc ? I for one do not want more taxes!!! But would rather have it come from legit necessary tax rates vs over enforcement against citizens to make up the difference. Yes we need traffic enforcement. Yes we need our police! The left move to defund in some places is insane….. I stand tall with our police! But the balance of protect and serve vs self-serve is what I am addressing. I know we all have bigger issues to fry than this, but the underlying balance is something of concern for every community to balance. Hope you are all safe and doing well, Matt Garrett – 214-878-3823 2226 Arbor Crest Dr. Carrollton, TX 75007
Many repairs needed on Standridge between Rosemeade and Peters Colony. Are these scheduled?
This is on Standridge (main road) and Southampton. For 3 years it has been reported and terrible repairs made. When will this be fixed correctly!
I didn’t hear back as to when this would be replaced. It’s behind reasonable repair and taxpayers want the road fixed. Brighton Drive.
thanks for fixing the holes....after I paint the holes..next day were fixed
Cities all over the country are looking at ways to siphon money from their police departments budget. Even in our city of Carrollton Tx. some council persons are doing that. If it happens it will mean that some programs like our welfare calls the citizen patrol will disappear.
