Roy Avery Hord

April 16, 1974 – December 9, 2018

roy hordOn December 9, 2018, we lost one of our most treasured city employees, Roy Avery Hord. Roy served Haltom City for over 22 years. He started as a Maintenance Worker and through the years was promoted to numerous positions, including Crew Leader, Construction Inspector, Water Production Operator and Water Production Supervisor.

Roy would do anything he could to help others. His kindness, positivity and humble nature were obvious to anyone who encountered him. He was known for his sense of humor, gregarious personality and the biggest of smiles.

Please join me in sending thoughts and prayers to Roy’s family and friends, so that they may find strength and comfort during this most difficult time. Roy will be greatly missed by his fellow employees and the Haltom City community at large.

May God Bless Roy and his family. Visitation and funeral service information can be found here.

Respectfully and Sincerely,

David Averitt

Help Control Mosquito Population

mosquito2Warmer weather means the return of mosquitoes, and controlling the mosquito population requires your help.

Mosquito larvae must live in still water for five or more days to complete their growth before changing into adult biting mosquitoes capable of transmitting disease. Often, the number of mosquitoes in an area can be reduced by removing sources of standing water around residences. For example, hundreds of mosquitoes can come from a single discarded tire and thousands can come from stagnate swimming pools. If you’ll do your part the City of Haltom City will do its part in doing everything to help control mosquitoes in the city limits.

Notify the City about standing water and dead birds by calling 817 834-9036 or emailing Tom Belloma, Environmental Services Manager. For additional information about mosquitoes and information concerning the West Nile Virus please read this information.
