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

Restrictions on Irrigation Systems

Long-term water shortages across the state required passage of an ordinance restricting usage of irrigation systems during specific hours of the day here in Haltom City.

Lawn and Landscape Irrigation Restrictions:

  • Except for hand watering and the use of soaker hoses, it shall be unlawful for any person to irrigate, water, or cause or permit the irrigation or watering of any lawn or landscape located on premises owned, leased, or managed by that person between the hours of 10AM and 6PM during the period from June 1 through September 30 of any year.
  • Prohibitions of wasting water to include situations such as a substantial amount of water that may fall on impervious area instead of a lawn or landscape, such that a constant stream of water overflows from the lawn or landscape onto a street or other drainage area; or an irrigation system or other lawn or landscape watering devise to operate during any form of precipitation.
  • Exceptions to prohibited water use are outlined in Haltom City’s Water Conservation and Emergency Water Demand Plan, which lists exceptions based on drought or emergency response stages.

Irrigation System Rain and Freeze Sensors:

  • Any non-residential irrigation system installed within the City on or after July 1, 2006 must be equipped with rain and freeze sensors in number and type established and published by the Director of Public Works. Any existing non-residential irrigation system must have the rain and freeze sensors installed by June 1, 2007. Also rain and freeze guards on non-residential irrigation systems must be inspected annually.
  • New residential irrigation systems installed on or after June 1, 2007 must include rain and freeze sensors.
