Residents, please check to make sure the lids on carts (trash & recycling) can be opened, and if they are frozen shut, press down in the center of the lid to break the ice seal and gently break the ice until the lid opens.
We don’t want this to be an issue or cause delays in services, as we have a lot to catch up on!

Residentes, verifiquen para asegurarse de que las tapas de los contenedores (basura y reciclaje) se puedan abrir y, si están congelados, presionen el centro de la tapa hacia abajo para romper el sello de hielo y rompan el hielo suavemente hasta que la tapa se abra.
¡No queremos que esto sea un problema o cause retrasos en los servicios, ya que tenemos mucho que ponernos al día!

Want to know more about narcotics investigations? How a traffic stop works? A crime scene search?

You can learn a lot by attending our next Citizens Police Academy.
It's a 33-hour block of instruction designed to give the public a working knowledge of the Police Department's personnel and policies. It consists of a series of classes held once each week for three hours.

The instruction is comprehensive, covering a different area of the Police Department each week. Officers, supervisors, and personnel assigned to that particular division conduct each instructional block. And it's free!

The next academy will start March 2nd and end on May 11th. Sign up at farmersbranchtx-portal.app.transform.civicplus.com/forms/20554

¿Quiere saber más sobre las investigaciones de narcóticos? ¿Cómo funciona una parada de tráfico? ¿Una búsqueda en la escena del crimen?

Puede aprender mucho asistiendo a nuestra próxima Academia de Policía para Ciudadanos.
Es un bloque de instrucción de 33 horas diseñado para brindarle al público un conocimiento práctico del personal y las políticas del Departamento de Policía. Consiste en una serie de clases que se imparten una vez a la semana durante tres horas.

La instrucción es integral y cubre un área diferente del Departamento de Policía cada semana. Los oficiales, supervisores y personal asignado a esa división en particular conducen cada bloque de instrucción. ¡Y es gratis!

La próxima academia comenzará el 2 de marzo y finalizará el 11 de mayo. Regístrese en farmerbranchtx-portal.app.transform.civicplus.com/forms/20554

TRASH COLLECTION UPDATE!

Our trash and recycling partner CWD has developed a recovery plan for collections this week and next:

•For Monday/Thursday routes: No service until Monday, 2/6. Garbage and recycling was collected on Monday, 1/30.

•For Tuesday/Friday: Garbage service will be provided on Friday, 2/3. The Friday recycling route will be serviced on the same day.

•For Wednesday garbage: Residents are to set their container out for service on Thursday, 2/2. CWD will service the route as they are able, sometime before Sunday. Most likely, crews will collect at some households each day, as they finish routes in other cities.

Nuestro socio de basura y reciclaje CWD ha desarrollado un plan de recuperación para las colecciones de esta semana y la próxima:

• Para rutas lunes/jueves: Sin servicio hasta el lunes 2/6. La basura y el reciclaje se recogieron el lunes 1/30.

• Para martes/viernes: El servicio de recolección de basura se brindará el viernes 2/3. La ruta de reciclaje del viernes se atenderá el mismo día.

• Para la basura de los miércoles: los residentes deben preparar su contenedor para el servicio el jueves 2/2. CWD dará servicio a la ruta como sea posible, en algún momento antes del domingo. Lo más probable es que las cuadrillas recolecten en algunos hogares cada día, mientras terminan las rutas en otras ciudades.

UPDATE AS OF 5 P.M. FEBRUARY 1.

The National Weather Service has predicted another widespread round of freezing rain Wednesday, continuing through the night and adding up to half an inch of new ice to already treacherous roads. This new Ice Storm Warning includes Tarrant, Dallas, Denton and Collin Counties.

In consideration of this forecast, Farmers Branch City leaders have decided to delay the re-opening of City facilities until noon Thursday, February 2.

El Servicio Meteorológico Nacional pronosticó otra ronda generalizada de lluvia helada el miércoles, que continuará durante la noche y agregará hasta media pulgada de hielo nuevo a las carreteras ya traicioneras. Esta nueva advertencia de tormenta de hielo incluye los condados de Tarrant, Dallas, Denton y Collin.

En consideración a este pronóstico, los líderes de Farmers Branch han decidido retrasar la reapertura de las instalaciones de la ciudad hasta el mediodía del jueves 2 de Febrero.

The National Weather Service has extended its Winter Ice Storm Warning through Thursday morning, February 2, with more freezing rain, sleet and widespread icing expected on bridges and some surface streets.

In light of these conditions, Farmers Branch City leaders have decided to keep City facilities closed for a second day.

The closure will now extend through Wednesday, February 1 and will affect City Hall, The Branch Connection, Manske Library, the Municipal Court, the Historical Park, the Animal Adoption Center, the Margaret Young Natatorium and the Community Recreation Center.

All City facilities will re-open tomorrow February 2 at 8 am.

El Servicio Meteorológico Nacional ha extendido su Advertencia de Tormenta de Hielo Invernal hasta el jueves 2 de Febrero por la mañana, y se esperan más lluvias heladas, aguanieve y formación de hielo generalizada en los puentes y algunas calles superficiales. 

A la luz de estas condiciones, los líderes de Farmers Branch han decidido mantener las instalaciones de la ciudad cerradas por segundo día. El cierre ahora se extenderá hasta el miércoles 1 de Febrero y afectará al Ayuntamiento, The Branch Connection, la Biblioteca Manske, el Tribunal Municipal, el Parque Histórico, el Centro de Adopción de Animales, el Natatorio Margaret Young y el Centro Recreativo Comunitario.

Todas las instalaciones de la Ciudad reabrirán mañana 2 de Febrero a las 8 am.

Coyote warning!
Local coyotes are hiding and staying warm right now. As soon as the sun reappears, they will come out to feed, and they will be hungry. Pet owners, please do NOT let your animals run free (this is illegal all year anyway), especially as our local temperatures start to climb. The coyotes will be hunting.

¡Advertencia de coyotes!
Los coyotes locales se esconden y se mantienen calientes en este momento. En cuanto vuelva a salir el sol, saldrán a alimentarse y tendrán hambre. Dueños de mascotas, NO dejen que sus animales corran libres (de todos modos, esto es ilegal durante todo el año), especialmente cuando nuestras temperaturas locales comienzan a subir. Los coyotes estarán cazando.

Thanks for redoing the FB city website. The new one is so much easier to navigate for an average citizen!
Homeless guy living in my yard.
Recently half of the Longview area sheriff's department resigned rather than be "mandated" to take a zero product liability Fakeccine. Are your police officers reading this? All police statewide are certain to be aware of this biological THREAT to their personal medical choice! I hope you lose half your police department!
Is there anywhere in Farmers Branch that is doing Covid vaccinations ?
Is anyone tending to this page or is this announcements only ?
How about you start issuing citations to the panhandlers that are on the corners of Valley View and I-35 every single day? I drive from Mesquite every day to work in your fine city snd get tired of seeing this. I already have to put up with it at all of my properties up the street in Dallas along 35 and Walnut Hill, Royal , Empire Central, Northwest Highway. We moved our office from Dallas to FB because we hoped FB would not put up with it like Dallas does. They seem to slowly be moving this way. If you don’t stop it now you will start looking like Dallas a few miles away. PLease start issuing citations or arrest. Sick of it.
Why are they tearing up Hague ??
Congratulations to Pamela DeHon on being promoted to Controller.
I lived in Farmers Branch back in the 60's, 70's. There was a drug store in the Valwood Shopping Center. Started with an S. Can anyone remember the name of this store? Thanks
