Severe Weather Awareness Week February 21 – 27, 2010

Each year, the Texas Division of Emergency Management, the National Weather Service, Emergency Management Coordinators and officials with local jurisdiction, join together to recognize Severe Weather Awareness Week.
Severe Weather Awareness Week in Texas has been set for Feb. 21 – 27, 2010.
This is an opportunity to help prepare our residents to deal with the extreme weather events that come our way in Texas. This is an excellent time to build public awareness by reminding our residents to update their emergency plans, double check emergency supply kits and get prepared for tornadoes, floods, hail, straight-line windstorms and other hazardous events.
For more information on EMergency Preparedness, click the Emergency Management link on this page.

New Billing for Trash and Recycling

Joshua residents will begin to receive quarterly billing for trash and recycling from the City of Joshua instead of from IESI starting February 22, 2010.  These bills will be for garbage and recycling service from March 1, 2010 – May 31, 2010.  Payment will be due March 15, 2010, and will be made directly to the City.  The bills will look different than what residents are used to seeing from IESI, and will be mailed to the owner of the property.  A sample bill is attached to the end of this message for your information.

Service routes and collection days will remain the same.  Garbage is collected every Tuesday and Friday,  Recycling is collected every Wednesday.  All waste collection containers as well as any brush and bulky items must be in place for collection no earlier than 7:00 p.m. on the evening prior to the collection day and no later than 7:00 a.m. each morning of the collection day.  Waste collection containers must be removed no later than 7:00 a.m. the morning after the collection day.

Residents will continue to recieve bills quarterly as you have in the past.  As has always been the case, City residents are required to establish service for trash and recyclying with the City’s contract provider, which is IESI.  The ordinance also requires residents to pay for that service or face late fees, citations, and collection proceedings.

For more information please call Joshua City Hall at 817-558-7447.
