Service requests for several city departments are available on the app.
Fort Worth residents and visitors now have a quick and easy way to report issues to the city.
The new My Fort Worth (MyFW) app is now available. After downloading the app, users can provide a brief description, photos and use a map-based location feature to submit issues like graffiti, potholes or high grass. Once submitted, the request will go directly to the appropriate city work team for a quick response. The user can view the status of the request in the app and receive a notification when the work is complete.
Service requests for Code Compliance, Human Resources, Park & Recreation and Transportation & Public Works are all currently available on the app.
MyFW also saves time and money by automating many employee tasks. It saves gas and eliminates travel by enabling city staff to instantly upload reports and photo documentation from the worksite. Employees can initiate work orders from their office or in the field. The app interfaces with many existing workflow systems, making responses to residents more efficient and accurate.
Tarrant County commissioners approved a long list of requirements for game room owners Tuesday in an effort to regulate the businesses that many residents believe attract crime.
The commissioners unanimously adopted an ordinance that requires permits for game room owners and sets rules regarding hours and locations. Commissioner J.D. Johnson was not present. The regulations are set to go into effect April 1, 2020. Among the rules for game rooms:
A permit to operate.
Hours are limited to 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Game rooms cannot be within 1,500 feet of a school, church or residential neighborhood, or within 2,000 feet of another game room.
An outside sign that reads “game room” must be displayed and at least two windows must provide “a clear and unobstructed view of all machines.”
Violating the regulations could result in fines and misdemeanor charges.
But it’s unclear how the county will notify game room owners, as officials know there are some businesses they aren’t aware of. No game room owners testified in support of the regulations at Commissioners Court.
On Tuesday, November 12, 2019, at 10:00 AM, Tarrant County Commissioners Court will meet and consider Regulations of Game Room Operations related to public health, safety and welfare of the Tarrant County community.
At this meeting, members of the public will be able to speak and give testimony as to concerns regarding game rooms in Tarrant County.
The public hearing will be held at Tarrant County Commissioners Court
Tarrant County Administration Building, 100 E. Weatherford St, Fifth Floor Commissioners Courtroom Fort Worth, TX 76196

Per Nicole Collier, State Representative, Texas House District 95
We will be able to talk more about the outcome of the county’s hearing at our Game Room Town Hall. However, I am a little disappointed that they are adding this to their agenda ahead of our town hall where everyone would have had the chance to gather their thoughts and flush out all the issues. But I am glad they are really trying to listen. Also, I’m told that they don’t plan on taking a vote on it until 11/19/19, so our town hall will be another chance for the community to speak and the county to listen. Well, at least Commissioner Brooks as he will be at the town hall. Let me know if you have any questions. – Thanks! Nicole Collier – State Representative – Texas House District 95
On Tuesday, November 5, 2019 the Woodhaven Neighborhood Association Steering Committee unanimously voted in opposition of the application for the Mockingbird Estates Subdivision Project for 150+ town homes east of I-820 on Randol Mill Road which is a two-lane heavy traffic area near the K-12 Temple Christian School. The plat plan indicates that the main entry to the proposed 300+ homes is located at the beginning of the ‘blind’ curve on Randol Mill Road near the entrance to Pate Rehabilitation and a few hundred yards from Williams Road. Although this road has recently been resurfaced with blacktop, the single east and west bound lanes of traffic continue to generate safety issues. The volume of additional traffic generated by these townhomes will dangerously ‘outstrip’ the current infrastructure and intensify the safety of those living, attending school, working, or visiting this area.
Opposition of Case Number PP-19-049 Mockingbird Estates is therefore respectfully submitted on behalf of the Woodhaven Neighborhood Association by Clairita Porter, WNA President 2017-2019 email@example.com cell: 817-308-0261
