a place to call home
Regarding tree limbs, etc, Waste Connections will be picking up a reasonable amount more than usual this week (Mar 5-10). If you have an unusually large amount of tree limbs to dispose of you can call WC (817-222-2221) to make arrangements for a bulk pick-up.
Otherwise, as they make the rounds this week WC will evaluate tree limb pickups on a case-by-case basis, servicing as much as they reasonably can.
Due to the weather event on Thursday, March 2, 2023, Haltom City Code Enforcement and Planning and Inspections Department understands it will take time for those residents affected to make the necessary repairs to their property, including clean up from the storm damage.
Haltom City will waive permits for repairs to existing fences for the next thirty (30) days. If there are any structural repairs, roofing, or other damages caused by the storm, contact Haltom City Planning and Inspections Department at 817-222-7730 to see if a permit is necessary for your repair BEFORE you start work on the project. Haltom City Inspections Department wants to ensure all repairs are done safely and are completed by licensed professionals.

What are the Benefits of Carted Trash Service?
Water and sewer rates pay for the cost of operating the utilities, including personnel, maintenance, water resources, administration, debt service, and capital construction.
Water and sewer rates for residential and non-residential customers were last adjusted in 2019. In 2021, a new rate structure was established and the new billing will begin October of 2022. Costs are adjusted to maintain the infrastructure for quality, reliability, and costs associated with access to safe drinking water.
All water & sewer customers of Haltom City
To align with industry best standards for utility billing methods
New rates go into effect on October 1, 2022
The former billing rate method utilized 3 groups (A, B, C) defined by the number of units served at the location. Customers in each group were charged a base rate and consumption depending on the group they were in.
*Note: The sampling of comparable cities done during the rate study found no other comporable cities with this system of billing.
The new billing method utilizes a tiered pricing structure. In this structure, users pay a base rate by meter size including the first 1,000 gallons of water. Additional charges are incurred based on the amount of water used if it exceeds 1,000 gallons.
In short, the more water you use, the more you pay.
Water conservation isn’t just good for the environment— it can help you save money on your utilities!

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
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).
The new Station #3 replaces the now decommissioned station that was under the IH820 water tower.
In May 2022 Haltom City voters passed a bond election authorizing the construction of a new City Hall. The new building will be located just south of the Haltom City Public Library, at the corner of Glenview Dr. and Haltom Rd. The scheduled completion date of the new City Hall is August 2024. A groundbreaking was held on February 21, 2023.
City services that will be operating out of the new facility include:
The current City Hall facility was originally constructed 65 years ago, in 1957. Haltom City’s population has subsequently increased by over 100%, with an additional 5,000 to 6,000 more residents expected to relocate here within the next 5 years. A needs assessment, completed in 2013, showed the current City Hall no longer met industry standards in terms of space, functionality, and requirements set forth in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The new facility will be built to comply with all ADA and code requirements, including installation of modern safety and energy standards.
