Mosquito Spraying Scheduled For E. Little Area Oct. 27th & 30th

In our continued effort against the West Nile Virus, the City of Duncanville has authorized the Dallas County Health and Human Services (DCHHS) to conduct ground spraying against mosquitoes on Thursday, October 27th, and Sunday, October 30th, between the hours of 9 PM and 5 AM, weather permitting. Spraying will be performed in the East Little Street area, which is bounded on the west by Santa Fe Trail, on the north by Wheatland Road, and on the east by Highway 67. Dallas County reported that a mosquito trap in this area tested positive for West Nile Virus this week. A map of the area to be treated is available here.

Residents living near this area are encouraged to remain indoors and bring their pets inside during spraying. City Staff will continue to monitor areas where mosquito breeding is mostly like to occur. To prevent the spread of mosquitoes, residents should remove all areas of standing water and report all pools that are not well maintained and abandoned homes where mosquitoes are likely to breed to the Health and Code Enforcement Department. Everyone should continue to protect themselves against the West Nile Virus by using insect repellent containing DEET. Citizens are also encouraged to remain indoors during dawn and dusk, when mosquitoes are most active.

For more information on the scheduled ground mosquito spraying in Duncanville, contact Health Inspector Mike Plemons at 972-740-1163.

Working Together to Improve Property Values in Duncanville

The Duncanville community came together today to continue improving local residential properties through the City’s Property Improvement Project program. Lead by the First United Methodist Church (FUMC) in Duncanville, in partnership with City’s Neighborhood Vitality Commission, local volunteers performed pip-days-volunteers-working-on-fence-repair-resizedcosmetic upgrades to bring local residences back to community standards.

“The team effort seen here today reflects the sense of community Duncanville is known for.  We couldn’t have accomplished this project without the help of local volunteers and contributions from local organizations. Their dedication and love for the City is what sets us apart and makes the City of Duncanville the best place to live,” said Mayor David Green.

Today’s project marks the second renovation coordinated by the FUMC in Duncanville and the Duncanville Neighborhood Vitality Commission. “It is absolutely rewarding to be able to assist residents in need through programs like these,” said Brenda O’Brien Duncanville Neighborhood Vitality Commission President. “We are fortunate to have local partners that step up to help beautify the city.” Funding for the project was provided by the FUMC pip-days-volunteers-group-3Mission Group with donations by local businesses including Republic Services, Costco Wholesale, and Chicken Express.

The City plans to continue with the program with future residential projects. Persons interested in volunteering can contact the FUMC in Duncanville at 972-298-6121. Homeowners that wish to be considered for future renovations should contact the City of Duncanville Code Services at 972-780-5040. Residences are selected based on an evaluation conducted by the City that includes resident’s need, income, and scope of work among other criteria.

For more information about the Duncanville Project Improvement Project, contact the Assistant City Manager at 972-780-5004.
