Italian Sister City Guests Visiting Duncanville in October, Seeking Host Families

Over 21 years ago, Duncanville established a Sister City Program with Monasterolo di Savigliano, a city in Northern Italy. The program offers culture awareness and economic information. Over the years, host families in both Monasterolo and Duncanville have exchanged friendship and culture traditions.

In October, Monasterolo will send a group of citizens, age 30 to 60, to visit Duncanville for 10 days. The Sister City Commission is looking for host families to accommodate one or two people, and host families do not need to speak Italian. Responsibilities include providing a private room for either a single person or a couple, a simple breakfast, and transportation to and from City Hall.

If you are interested, or want to learn more information about the Sister City Program, contact Chelsea Cooper at 972-780-5069 or ccooper@duncanville.com.

City Clean Up Crews Respond to Sanitary Sewer Overflow After Heavy Rains

The Duncanville Public Works Department is currently undergoing clean-up, remediation and disinfection of two Sanitary Sewer Overflow’s (SSO) that occurred as a result of weather conditions and heavy rainfall on December 26 and December 27, 2018. The overflows affected Mauk Branch Creek and Horne Branch Creek, and are located near:

• Little & South Main Street (Horne Branch Creek)
• 700 Block of Forest Circle (Mauk Branch Creek)

City Officials will continue to comply with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) requirements for a discharge over their threshold limit of 100,000 gallons. Once the water overflow completely resides, crews will begin taking laboratory samples at various points along the creek to ensure the water and environment are safe. There has been no observation of any fish kills to-date.

Duncanville citizens should not be concerned when using water, as at no time was the City’s water system affected by this sewer spill. The City will continue to collect and test samples in the creek area for any contaminants or distress of marine life. The public should avoid contact with waste material, soil, or water in the area potentially affected by the spill. If the public comes into contact with waste material, soil, or water potentially affected by the spill, they should bathe and wash clothes thoroughly as soon as possible.
