Podcast: Why does Mayor Mooney want to walk in your neighborhood?

Mayor Karl Mooney has a new way to connect with citizens: a monthly "Walk With the Mayor." In this episode of the city podcast, Mayor Mooney said he especially wants to connect with residents who may not feel comfortable coming to city hall but still have issues or concerns they want the mayor to see and understand. To listen to the podcast of Mayor Mooney talking with Public Communications Director Jay Socol about his thoughts on "Walk With the Mayor", click here

New "My Neighborhood Guide" now available

Neighborhood Services and the Public Communications Department revised the manual used by neighborhood associations and HOAs to organize and manage associations. The original manual was published in the early 2000's. The manual needed to be revised and updated to reflect the more current state and needs of associations. The manual is meant to be a resource for association leaders and representatives.  For a hard copy, contact Neighborhood Services to arrange to pick up a copy or have one mailed. For an electronic version, click here.

Last month's Seminar Supper was on the topic of Code Enforcement. Code Supervisor Julie Caler was the guest speaker discussing all things code enforcement. Since this always one of the most important topics, this video of the seminar supper is now available for viewing.  To view the video, click here

Parks Summer Guide is now available

The Parks and Recreation Summer Guide is now available for download. Hard copies available at City Hall, Stephen C. Beachy Central Park, Southwood Community Center, Lincoln Recreation Center and Larry J. Ringer Library.  The electronic copy of the guide is available here for download.

Neighborhood Services Office is moving

The Neighborhood Services Office is to the old Human Resources Office in City Hall. The new office will be just a few steps down the hall from the old office near the elevator. The City's Human Resources Office moved next door to the old Fire Station at 1207 Texas Avenue and in doing so provided some much needed additional office space for various city employees. The move should take place the week of May 15.

Mosquito Dunk distribution to begin May 22

Mosquito dunk distribution will begin on May 22. Like last year, all HOAs will go through neighborhood services to receive dunks. Applications for dunks must be completed and turned in when picking up dunks. Please call before coming to pick up dunks from Neighborhood Services to be sure the Neighborhood Services Coordinator is in the office and available to distribute the dunks.  Residents not in HOAs can pick up dunks from the City Secretary's Office, also located in city hall. Mosquito dunks can be picked up in the City Secretary's Office beginning May 22, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.  To get more information on the mosquito dunks, tips to keep safe during mosquito season and the application for HOAs to receive dunks, visit the Neighborhood Services webpage here and check out the Mosquito Abatement Program tab.

Piyo Class

Starting January 31 we will be offering a PiYo class-Tuesday night at 5:45pm-6:45pm at the Castlegate II Community Center. This is a great way to build community and get to know some of your neighbors! 


PiYo is an incredibly effective body-transformation program that combines Pilates and yoga-inspired moves, all set to a faster pace, so you get your strength, fexibility, and cardio all in each workout. PiYo delivers the long, lean muscles and flat, toned abs of Pilates, a firm butt and strong arms like you'd get from yoga, and the weight-loss benefits of fat-burning cardio. The movement pattern goes from longer (16 count) to shorter and faster (4 count). There is a lot of getting up and down from the floor to standing position. This program will work your core like no other and is great for athletes who want to stretch their hip flexors, IT Band, hamstrings, and lower back. It is great for folks who want to get in a great workout without  pounding on the joints. Classes are one hour  and are $8 per class. Sessions will run 8 weeks allowing for no class the week of Spring Break. There will be one free make up class in case you must miss a scheduled class. To register, please contact Mary Timoney at 979-428-5530 and she will get you all set up.

The Sheriff's Office Needs your Help!

PLEASE READ: Important Message from the Brazos County Crime Prevention Deputy Nathan Dennis

The Sheriff's Office has recently experienced a rise in reports of burglaries. During this time each year we tend to see increases in home burglaries, as more houses are unoccupied during daytime hours.

A current strategy for these thieves is to knock on the doors of a residence to check if anyone is home. If someone does answer the door the subject may ask for directions, or say they are looking for a certain person. If this happens to you, please lock the door and gather as much informaton on the subject and call your local Police Department or Sheriff's Office to report the incident.

The Sheriff's Office hs also seen an increase in vehichle burglaries. In most cases the vehichles that were burglarized were unlocked. We ask that you take all valuable items out of your vehichle and always lock it. If possible park your vehichle in a lighted area. Help us by being the eyes and ears of your Sheriff's Office.

If you see suspicious activity, contact 9-1-1 and report your concerns. The safety of our community does not have borders. It is the goal of every law enforcement agency to protect the citizens that they serve.

Reember... together we can make a difference in our community!
