Duncanville Fire Station 271 Groundbreaking Ceremony Thursday, December 1, 2022

Duncanville, TX – The City of Duncanville is proceeding with the construction of the new Fire Station 271. The community is invited to attend a special groundbreaking ceremony to be held at 10:00 AM on Thursday, December 1, 2022, at 308 West Camp Wisdom Road, Duncanville, Texas 75116.

Attendees will then hear remarks from Duncanville Mayor Barry L. Gordon, City Manager Aretha R. Ferrell-Benavides, Fire Chief Sam Rhode, Assistant Fire Chief Greg Chase, Interim Director of Public Works Jacqueline Culton, BRW Architects, and representatives of CORE Construction.

The new fire station will be a significant upgrade for firefighters and staff. Once completed, the modern Fire Station 271 will replace the current facility on Camp Wisdom Road, that was built in 1966. The new ADA-compliant station will be 15,564 square feet, with 10 dorms and 8 restrooms that will better support both male and female staff. It will also better accommodate the city’s ladder trucks, which are approximately 11 feet tall and 40 feet long.

This project was approved by residents in the 2018 Bond Election. Construction will take place over the next several months, with substantial completion anticipated by fall 2023. Renderings of the facility can be made available upon request and are available on the City’s website.

Boys and Girls Basketball Coaches Face Suspension

Duncanville ISD

UIL Executive Committee Meeting Results

October 31, 2022 – At a hearing this morning, the UIL State Executive Committee voted to suspend Coach David Peavy for one year for playing a student that the Committee determined was an ineligible player. In addition to Coach Peavy’s suspension, the Committee determined that the Duncanville Boys Basketball program forfeits all games in which the student played and therefore forfeits the 2022 Conference 6A Boys Basketball State Championship.

The player’s eligibility was the subject of court action. At all times that the student played for Duncanville, the player did so under a valid court order. Although this matter is still pending, the district disagrees that it violated any UIL rules by playing a student whose eligibility was the subject of a valid court order.

Also, at today’s meeting, the UIL State Executive Committee voted to publicly reprimand and suspend Duncanville High School Head Girls Basketball Coach LeJeanna Howard for a period of one year. In addition to the lengthy suspension for Coach Howard, the Committee placed the Duncanville Girls Basketball program on probation for a three-year period and suspended them from participation in this year’s post-season play.

Prior to today’s hearing, Duncanville ISD had already internally acted to impose a substantial and appropriate disciplinary suspension for Coach Howard. We believe our internal disciplinary measure was both substantial and appropriate. However, we respect the Committee’s decision that a longer suspension was appropriate.

“These are significant and unprecedented consequences for both programs, and students will suffer the most from today’s decisions,” said Duncanville ISD Superintendent Dr. Marc Smith.

City of Duncanville Welcomes New City Secretary, Police Department Welcomes Familiar Chief Operations Officer

Duncanville, TX – The City of Duncanville is pleased to welcome Juanita “Janie” Willman as the new City Secretary.

Ms. Willman comes to the City of Duncanville with knowledge, skills, and abilities acquired during a career in Texas local government that dates back to January 1988. Her service to the citizens of Texas has spanned a number of municipalities over the past 34 years.

One of Ms. Willman’s several accomplishments in local government was serving as part of a neighborhood group that acquired a $1.2 million Community Model Blocks Grant using the City of Fort Worth’s competitive model blocks grant program. At the City of Fort Worth, she played an important role in the city’s Action Center, advocating for Fort Worth’s citizens to collaborate with the city’s traditional service structure.  She coordinated the Fort Worth Commission on the Status of Women’s annual banquet honoring the most prominent women in Fort Worth and Texas.  She also wrote a bracket bill that became part of the State of Texas legislative program extending taxation funding for street reconstruction. As a volunteer member of a consortium of cities, Ms. Willman also represented Texas utility ratepayers in Texas utility rate-setting cases.

Ms. Willman will be taking over the position of City Secretary from Kristin Downs, who served the City of Duncanville in that position for the last four years. Ms. Downs will be moving to the Duncanville Police Department to serve as the new Chief Operations Officer.

“I am incredibly happy to pass the torch to her,” said Ms. Downs. “I believe she will be a tremendous asset to the City of Champions. I consider it an honor and a privilege to have worked in the City Manager’s and City Secretary’s offices for the past eight years. I cannot wait for our citizens and leadership to see our accomplishments in the Duncanville Police Department.”

In her new role, Ms. Downs will serve as the executive assistant to the Chief of Police, supervise the Police Records division, assist in the execution of internal and external department communications, help organize department events, and oversee community engagement.

She brings to the Department a unique understanding of governance and its role in creating a vibrant community. Her knowledge of records management, budget preparation, and agenda preparation will prove to be valuable resources for Police Administration. The Department will also benefit from Ms. Downs’ eight combined years of experience with the City as it continues to develop its professional administrative standards.

Chief Mark LiVigni, who has worked closely with Ms. Downs over the last several years, stated, “We have talented employees throughout our department. I am ecstatic to have the opportunity to add Kristin’s gifts to the Police Department. She brings an incredible skillset and cognizance of municipal government that will advance the Department.”

“The transition to the Police Department is an incredible opportunity for Ms. Downs, and it reflects the City’s efforts to develop an organization that attends to the needs of our community,” said City Manager Aretha R. Ferrell-Benavides. “We are recognizing people with talent, skills, and knowledge and putting them in the best locations within our organization to have the most immediate and positive impact. We are also recruiting talented people. As Ms. Downs begins to positively impact our Police Department with her knowledge and enthusiasm, we are excited to have someone as accomplished as Ms. Willman assume the City Secretary role.”

Janie Willman and Kristin Downs will officially assume their new roles on Monday, October 3, 2022.
