  Election Process Information

  The City of Dalworthington Gardens has been under contract with the Tarrant

  County Elections Administration for the entire election process for many years.

  The Mayor and City Council call the election in January in a public City Council

  meeting.  The City Secretary’s office accepts applications from persons filing

  for office.  From those applications the City Secretary prepares the wording

  for the ballots and submits the wording to Tarrant County Elections

  Administration for ballot preparation.  Tarrant County Elections Administration

  produces the ballots. The Mayor, City Council and City Staff do not have access

  to ballots before, during or after elections.  Tarrant County Elections

  Administration selects the Election Judges and the Election Clerks.  Tarrant

  County Elections Administration provides election equipment.  The equipment

  is tested and locked by Tarrant County Elections Administration staff before it

  is delivered to the voting site.  The Mayor, City Council and City Staff are not

  given keys or passwords to operate the voting equipment.  The voting

  equipment is not connected nor does it operate off the City server or other

  City lines.  The Election Judges and Clerks are the only ones with access to

  ballots and the voting equipment during the elections.  Early voting is

  conducted primarily off-site.  Election  results are counted by the Tarrant

  County Elections Administration and the results emailed to City Staff from the

  Tarrant County Elections Administration in Fort Worth. The same results are

  posted on the Tarrant County Elections Administration website and available

  Scheduled Road Improvements have begun

   Cracksealing work has begun on interior residential streets as a preventative 

   maintenance measure.  Roosevelt Drive and other major throuroughfares are

   recieving bar ditch maintenance.  Please be patient with the traffic

   delays and the inconvenience.

  Watch your pets!

   There have been a couple of coyotes seen out during the day lately.

   The latest occurrence was around 5:20 pm on Friday October 16, where

   staff observed a coyote off of Indian Trail.

   However, as a precaution, keep an eye on your pets, don't leave them outside

   to roam, unattended, doing so leaves

   them open to danger.  Leaving dog food out may attract them to your

   property as well.

 Water restriction notice:

  The City is still under Stage 1 water restrictions in compliance with the City  of

  Fort Worth and the Tarrant Regional Water District.  The primary focus of Stage

  1 actions is to significantly reduce outdoor watering, which can account for as

  much as 50 percent of the daily residential water used during the summer.

  Stage 1 limits outdoor watering with an irrigation system or hose-end sprinkler

  to a maximum of two assigned days per week for all customers. Residential

  customers whose addresses end in odd numbers  (1, 3, 5, 7 or 9) are permitted

  to water lawn and landscapes only on Thursdays and Sundays.  Addresses ending

  in even numbers (2, 4, 6, 8 or 0) may water on Wednesdays and Saturdays

  only.  Non-residential customers, including apartments, businesses, parks and

  common areas, can water only on Tuesday and Fridays. No watering is allowed

  on Mondays.

  The time of day restriction, which prohibits outdoor watering with sprinklers

  between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., continues to be in effect.

  Watering by hand-held hose, drip irrigation or soaker hose is allowed at any

  time. Residents are encouraged to limit such watering to a maximum of two

  hours per day. 

  Other Stage 1 measures include the following.

  • Vehicle washing is limited to the use of hand-held buckets and a hose with a positive shutoff valve. Vehicles may be washed at any time at a carwash.
  • No hosing of buildings or other structures for purposes other than fire protection.
  • Encouraging no hosing of paved areas, such as sidewalks, driveways, parking lots, etc.
  • Encouraging hotels, restaurants and bars to serve water only upon request.
  • Establishing new turf is discouraged, and a variance is required to do so.

  locations not later than 7:00 a.m. on the day of scheduled collection.  In

  this regard, it shall be unlawful for any customer to place any container of

  garbage at said location prior to the day of scheduled collection.
