Brandon T. Jones Lewisville City Council Place 4

Brandon T. Jones Lewisville City Council Place 4 I am Brandon Jones and I currently serving my second term as your Councilman for Lewisville City Council Place 4. I was born in Chicago as a son of two hardworking parents.

My dad is a retired police officer and my mom is a retired customer service representative. I moved to Texas to be with the love of my life, my wife Sherrelle. When I moved to Lewisville, I met a number of great people who welcomed me with open arms and encouraged my interest to learn about Lewisville. I attended Vision 2025 meetings, city council meetings and workshops in an effort to understand how our local government worked. The mayor and city council provided an awesome opportunity to serve on a number of boards which gave me a deeper understanding our city and allowed me to advise our city council on a number of issues. My running for council is an effort to continue to serve and help shape our city.

One week until Lewisville opens Thrive

The City of Lewisville is set to open Thrive, the city’s new 87,000-square-foot multi-generational recreation center, this Saturday, Oct. 3rd.

Thrive is located at 1950 S. Valley Parkway, features a natatorium, gymnasium, indoor walking track, expanded fitness area, community rooms, and an indoor playground. To learn about all the programs and activities, visit https://www.lewisvillethrive.com/

While the City would like to welcome all members and potential members to Thrive on this opening weekend, staff will be working hard to adhere to current COVID-19 restrictions on large-scale public gatherings, health standards, and social-distancing guidelines.

With the safety of guests, instructors, and staff the foremost priority, Thrive will open with limited hours, limited capacity, and limited programming. To ensure proper cleaning and sanitation practices are upheld, Thrive will close for 30 minutes at least twice a day so the entire facility can undergo a deep cleaning.

Upon entering Thrive, guests will have their temperature taken and be asked some required travel/health questions. Masks will be required to enter the facility and must be worn in the public spaces (hallways, lounges, seating areas) but can be removed during certain activities. A clearly visible sign will be posted in each area of the building informing guests of requirements.

For a complete breakdown of precautions in place at Thrive, visit the “Thrive COVID-19 Procedures” page on https://www.lewisvillethrive.com/

Thrive was a top priority of the Lewisville 2025 vision plan. In 2015, voters approved Thrive’s construction as part of the largest bond package in Lewisville’s history.

Annual memberships are now available for individuals, families, and corporations. To purchase a membership, visit the “Thrive Memberships” page on https://www.lewisvillethrive.com/

Lewisville Western Days

Cody Johnson headlines Lewisville Western Days
Tuesday, September 1, 2020

The City of Lewisville is proud to announce Cody Johnson, one of Texas’ most sought-after talents, will headline the annual Western Days festival on Saturday, Sept. 26.

Johnson has accrued a staggering 970+ million on-demand streams over the course of his career, and he is just getting started. The past year has seen many firsts for the singer/songwriter including a CMA Awards nomination for New Artist of the Year, ACM Awards nomination for New Male Artist of the year, a sold-out show at the Historic Ryman Auditorium and the release of his first major-label album, Ain’t Nothin’ To It. The album debuted at No. 1 on both the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and their all-genre Digital Albums chart and has received over 310 million on-demand streams. “On My Way To You,” the lead single from the album, was Johnson’s first Top 10 radio hit and is RIAA certified Gold, approaching Platinum. He has received critical praise from outlets such as The New York Times, Associated Press, Billboard and more, with Rolling Stone stating that he “finds himself rapidly hurtling toward mainstream stardom with a unique concept in his arsenal: actual country music.”

Due to the COVID-10 disease outbreak, and in accordance with Gov. Greg Abbott’s executive order that prohibits outdoor gatherings in excess of 10 people, Western Days 2020 will be a virtual event. No general public will be in attendance for the event this year.

All the musical performances will originate from the Performance Hall, Black Box Theater, and Recital Hall at MCL Grand in Old Town Lewisville and will be streamed online at:
lewisvillewesterndays.com
cityoflewisville.com
facebook.com/lewisvillewesterndays
facebook.com/waynefergusonplaza
facebook.com/cityoflewisville
facebook.com/mclgrand
facebook.com/lewisvillelive

Additional musical acts include Charley Crokett, the South Texas native who just released a new album that is an immersive experience in sound; Hightower Band, a band with well-written original music mixed with some classic cover; the Squeezebox Bandits, a Fort Worth-based band that plays old country music with an accordion twist; the Gibbonses, a husband and wife duo who perform Americana/Folk-Rock original music; and a few other musical acts to be named later.

Western Days 2020 is scheduled to run 11 a.m. – 11:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 26. It will feature musical acts, and other Western Days staples such as the Indigenous ACE dancers, cooking demonstrations, and the crowd-favorite World Tamale Eating Championships presented by Market Street.

Sponsors for Western Days 2020 include City of Lewisville, Lewisville Convention and Visitors Bureau, Republic Services, 99.5 The Wolf, Bud Light, Orthofix, Huffines Auto Dealerships Lewisville, Market Street, Southern Comfort Mechanical A/C and Heating, CoServ, The Apparel Group, Commercial Bank of Texas, Hampton Inn and Suites Lewisville, Coca-Cola, Texas New Mexico Power, Living Magazine, and G-Texas Custom Catering.

Mosquito spraying to start after first West Nile positive mosquito test

Release Date: Monday, Aug. 31
_________________________________________________

Vector Disease Control International, a private company contracted by the City of Lewisville, has confirmed the city's first positive West Nile Virus mosquito trap for 2020. The positive sample came from a trap collected Aug. 28, from the 1200 block of College Parkway. This area is one of nine core sites regularly tested for the mosquito-borne virus.

Ground spraying will be conducted in a half-mile radius of the testing location. Weather permitting, spraying is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 1, and Wednesday, Sept. 2, starting at 9 p.m. each night. Trucks operated by Vector Disease Control International will conduct the spraying. The insecticide being used is registered with the Environmental Protection Agency and poses minimal risk to humans and the environment.

This is the fifth year the City of Lewisville has worked with Vector Disease Control International. The private company has its own certified lab and technicians. By using a private company, the City is able to receive test results faster than if tested by the state.

City crews are regularly walking through and visually inspecting creeks and drainage channels to look for potential mosquito breeding sites. The city has nearly a dozen workers in the Parks and Animal Services divisions who are state-certified to apply anti-larval dunks or localized pesticide to curb the mosquito population. Residents are encouraged to report any mosquito complaints to Chris McGinn at 972.219.3484.

Lewisville PD to begin Neighborhood Parking Enforcement Project
The Lewisville Police Department is rolling out a new Neighborhood Parking Enforcement Project to address residents’ concerns and improve traffic flow and quality of life in neighborhoods.

Beginning Monday, Sept. 7, LPD and Code Enforcement will post signs in selected neighborhoods, alerting residents about the parking enforcement project. Officers will begin issuing citations for violations of state parking laws on Monday, Sept. 14.

The signs are the first part of the education phase. LPD also has set up a Neighborhood Parking Enforcement Project page on cityoflewisville.com that includes a detailed Q&A section on what is considered a parking violation. Over the next few months, the Neighborhood Parking Enforcement Project will move to neighborhoods where LPD has received the most parking complaints.

Parking laws and ordinances exist for the benefit of all residents. Parking problems in residential neighborhoods are a frequent source of resident complaints to LPD. The goal of this project is to gain voluntary compliance by residents and improve parking conditions in those neighborhoods.

My Story

I am currently serving as Mayor Pro-Tem and Council member for the City of Lewisville in Place 4. I have been a resident of Lewisville since 2011. My wife Sherrelle and I love the small town feel of the city and the open arms of our fellow Lewisville residents. I initially got active with the city because I was tired of going to neighboring cities to go out for unique dining and entertainment experiences. Well, what I learned was that the council and city Staff were working on just that, but because of the economic downturn there was a slowdown to executing the plan. I wanted to help be a part of that process and started volunteering on TIRZ #2 Board and Planning and Zoning (P&Z) Board. That experience made me want to do more and so I ran for City Council in 2016. Serving on city council has been one of the best experiences of my life. Even with P&Z experience, I still had so much to learn and had some growing into the job. The key thing that I have learned was; that the job of being on the city council is one of teamwork, not just with the council members that I currently serve with, but with the councils of the past and the future council members that will be elected in the future. We are a relay team working to make the right decisions for the city to give our future leaders great material to continue to build on. I am proud to serve the City of Lewisville and look forward to continuing to serve you all.
