Update Regarding Zoning Case # Z-255 (Proposed Townhome Development):

Zoning Case # Z-255, which was the proposed townhome development that was discussed in a public hearing on April 19th, was tabled for 30 days by the Planning & Zoning Commission (P&Z). Because of this action, the item has been removed from the council agenda for Monday, April 26th. Tabling the item means that it will be at least 30 days before it is heard again by the P&Z, and it will not be considered by the Council until such time as a recommendation has been made by the P&Z. When any future hearings are scheduled to consider a revised or amended request, new notifications will be posted on the Town website as well as mailed to property owners within 200 feet of the proposed project, per Town ordinance and state law.

We are proud of our first responders and thankful for the outstanding job they do protecting our Town.

❤️ Lifesaving Awards at tonight’s Town Council Meeting—

On December 8, 2020, Pantego Dispatch Brenna White received a 911 call for an unconscious person. She quickly dispatched an ambulance and a police unit to the location. Pantego Police Offices Rife and Vega arrived on the scene to find a 49-year-old male laying unresponsive on the floor with his wife performing chest compressions. The police officers took over chest compressions, then Pantego Medic 49 arrived on the scene with Lt Mitchell, Firefighter paramedics Lance Westman and Michael Irizarry. The Paramedics applied the LifePak 15, he was in a shockable rhythm, they administered two shocks to the patient, and he converted back to a normal sinus rhythm. Medic crew continued with medical protocols, loaded the patient, and transported to MCA. Upon arrival to the hospital, the patient was conscious and breathing on his own. Patient was released from the hospital after three days.
The quick thinking and professionalism of the Pantego Dispatch, Police, and Fire Departments made this incident and the patient’s outcome successful, giving him another Christmas and Holiday season with his family.

Thankful that our partners at MCA came out tonight to help us recognize a job well done.

FAQ for COVID Orders
March 4, 2021

On March 2nd, Governor Abbott and Tarrant County Judge Whitley released orders rescinding previous orders and we realize that may lead to some confusion.

These FAQ’s may be used as a guide:

1. Where can I find the latest Governor’s Order?
https://open.texas.gov/uploads/files/organization/opentexas/EO-GA-34-opening-Texas-response-to-COVID-disaster-IMAGE-03-02-2021.pdf

2. Where can I find other related Governor’s Orders?
https://gov.texas.gov/coronavirus-executive-orders

3. Where can I find the latest Tarrant County Judge’s Order?
https://www.tarrantcounty.com/content/dam/main/global/Covid-19/Tarrant_County_Judge_Glen_Whitley_Executive_Order_3-2-21.pdf

4. Is Tarrant County considered a “high hospitalization” county by the state?
Currently less than 15% of total hospitalizations are COVID patients, therefore we are not currently considered to have “high hospitalization.”

5. So are masks no-longer required?
Per Tarrant County Judge Whitley’s Order listed above, there is no longer a mask requirement in Tarrant County.

6. Can I still require patrons and employees to wear masks inside my business?
Yes, there is no order that precludes businesses requiring masks for anyone, should businesses so choose.

7. So should we wear masks or not?
Governor Abbott, Texas Department of State Health Services, Tarrant County Public Health are all still encouraging masks to be worn whenever social distancing (6ft.) cannot be maintained.

8. What are the current occupancy restrictions?
Currently we are still under 75% occupancy restriction. After March 10, there will be no occupancy restriction by the state or county. The Governor’s order does restrict counties from placing more than a 50% restriction, in the case a county judge would make that decision (not expected in Tarrant County).

9. Do I have to continue to have a health and safety policy for my business?
Effective March 2, Judge Whitley is no longer requiring a health and safety policy.

10. What about bars…are they open?
Bars are open just like other businesses.

11. Is there one page that helps break down Governor’s Order?
The simplest place to gather a more detailed look on the impact is:
https://www.dshs.texas.gov/ga3031/

12. What if I still have questions?
Always feel free to reach out to Town Hall directly, we are here to help.

********RECOVERY from WINTER STORMS********

Many residents and businesses were impacted by the recent winter weather disaster. Pantego Emergency Management, TDEM, and FEMA are working on recovery efforts for our community . Below information should be able to help simply the process but if you have any questions reach out to our Emergency Manager. Rob Franklin- desk number 817-617-3717 or [email protected]

DAMAGE ASSESSMENT: we are asking any residents and businesses with winter storm damage to fill out this short confidential survey in order to capture damage caused by this winter storm. All data is protected and not shared with any entity other than emergency management officials. ARCGIS Survey123 Link: https://bit.ly/3b82TdV

FEMA INDIVIDUAL ASSISTANCE: 126 counties are approved under the declaration for FEMA Individual Assistance. This is a recovery process that The Town does not have hand in. Individual Assistance is not a replacement for insurance, rather it is meant to help those without insurance or those under-insured. If you do have insurance, you must file a claim with your insurance first before seeking FEMA assistance We encourage everyone that is un-insured or under-insured to apply. It is important to recognize this will not be as fast as prior disasters because this declared disaster affects every county in Texas. FEMA IA: https://www.disasterassistance.gov/

SBA LOANS: U.S. Small Business Administration has approved low-interest loans for Tarrant and many other counties in Texas. This will allow both individuals and businesses to apply for loans for recovery costs not covered directly by FEMA or insurance. SBA Link: https://disasterloanassistance.sba.gov/ela/s/

FEMA PA: Because we are under a declared disaster, we are eligible to recover certain emergency response costs (emergency protective measures) under FEMA Public Assistance. This is financial assistance for the Town of Pantego at a 75%/25% cost share. FEMA will cover 75% of approved costs. Your Town Officials, Finance, are working towards those reimbursements in order to recover un-budgeted expenses incurred by the Town.

Ever heard of ice dams? If you have large icicles in an area of your roof be alert! The paint may look bubbled. It is typically very slow and won’t stop until the ice dam is thawed.

We have been running non-stop along with our Police and Public Works and will share some our experiences later.... but wanted to help our residents and business NOW with a few VERY important tips. to be better prepared for the coming days.

Things will be warming starting today and any pipes that have frozen and broken will release water once they unfreeze. This means that buildings will take on that water until it is turned off....

*****PREPARE*****
🚰 know where your water meter is, make sure snow/ice/obstructions are cleared

🚰 be sure not to confuse the meter box with lawn sprinklers

🚰 ensure that the lid is loosened and ready to open

🚰 remove any dirt/debris blocking access to the pipe/gauge/meter valve....be sure not to damage any wires

🚰 prepare a tool that can turn the valve.

*****SHUT OFF*****
🚰 water valves may be 1/4 turn or 1/2 turn; for 1/4 turn valves turn until the valve is perpendicular to the pipe... for 1/2 turn valves, turn the valve until it stops.

🚰 if the valve has not been exercised in a while, it may be difficult to turn... CALL 911 and ask for "emergency water shutoff"

🚰 ensure that the leak has stopped; if it has not....CALL 911 and ask for "emergency water shutoff" be patient, Public Works or FD will respond as soon as we can.

*****FLOODING*****
🚰 TURN OFF ELECTRICITY in affected areas.⚠️⚠️ This poses a significant potential hazard.

🚰 remove furniture and items out of water asap

🚰 get fans blowing in the affected area asap

🚰 decide if you need to contact your insurance/restoration company.

History of the Town of Pantego

The Town of Pantego was incorporated in its present form with minor later adjustments, on May 22, 1952, after a previous incorporation in June 1949 and a dis-incorporation in February 1952.

Pantego had its origins in the area bounded on the west by present day Handley, on the south by Arkansas Lane, on the east by Jones Drive and Fielder Road, formerly Henry Road, and on the north by the Texas and Pacific Railroad.

Two creeks run from south to north through the area, viz. Rush Creek and Village Creek, formerly Caddo Creek, the latter believed to be named for Indian villages in the area.
