  • New Fire Station #3 Now in Operation

    The new Haltom City Fire Station #3, located at 5011 Old Denton Rd., is now in operation and is housing shifts. Expected to be the busiest fire station in the city, Station #3 will house eight firefighters, one front line engine, one ladder truck and one reserve engine

    New Fire Station #3 Now in Operation

    Architecturally, the new fire station brings state of the art facilities to north Haltom City. A cost efficient solution, the new building was constructed using pre-engineered steel framing systems. The environmentally efficient envelope enclose the functional spaces within a masonry and stucco skin.

    The roof is constructed of an insulated metal panel system that provides an energy code compliant system that sandwiches 6” rigid foam between metal interior and exterior skins, leaving clean surfaces on both sides and eliminating the need for secondary interior ceiling systems (which age more rapidly).

    • Haltom City Unveils "Buffalo Way" Street Name

      On Friday, April 8, 2022 Haltom City officials along with representatives, students and staff from Haltom High School unveiled the newly renamed street Buffalo Way. The previous name for this street, which runs east and west and is just south of the high school off of Haltom Road, was Fossil Ridge Circle.

      Haltom City Police Corporal Jason Michlitsch initiated the idea for the name change and presented it to Mayor Pro Tem Lin Thompson. The name change was then approved by the City Council. Corporal Michlitsch thought having this intersection, where Haltom Road and Buffalo Way cross, would be a great representation of the school and community coming together.

      Safe Outdoor Dog Act

      On October 25, 2021 the Texas Safe Outdoor Dogs Act was signed into law.

      The Safe Outdoor Dogs Act, which went into effect January 18, 2022, was passed with the intention of:

      • Defining adequate shelter to protect dogs from extreme temperatures, inclement weather, and standing water. Previously, there was no definition for shelter, thus tethered dogs routinely perished from exposure.
      • Requiring access to drinkable water. Before the Safe Outdoor Dogs Act, state law did not include this vital requirement.
      • Requiring safe restraints. The Safe Outdoor Dogs Act strikes the use of chains. Other means of restraint, such as cable tie-outs, may be used so long as they are correctly attached to a collar or harness designed to restrain a dog.

      Arguably the most significant change wrought by the Safe Outdoor Dogs Act is removing the 24-hour warning period that allowed bad actors to flout the law. Officers can now take immediate action for tethered dogs in distress.

      Exceptions to the Safe Outdoor Dogs Act

      The Safe Outdoor Dogs Act does not prevent owners from tethering dogs. The law requires that unattended dogs are tethered in a way that keeps them and the people around them safe, and there are several exceptions to the law. The Safe Outdoor Dogs Act does not apply to dogs who are:

      • Attached to a cable-tie out or trolley system
      • Camping or using other public recreational areas
      • Herding livestock or assisting with farming tasks
      • Hunting or participating in field trials
      • In an open-air truck bed while the owner completes a temporary task

      Restraining Dogs Without Using Chains

      The American Veterinary Medical Association and the Center for Disease Control agree that chaining dogs is an inappropriate method of restraint. Not only do chains tangle, rust, and break, but they often cause pain and injury.

      Conversely, cable tie-outs and trolley systems are designed to restrain dogs, so they are lightweight, strong, and flexible. On average, they cost between $15-$30 and are easy to find in stores and online.
