On Nov. 13, Mayor Chris Watts declared a public disaster for the Green Tree Estates neighborhood before the anticipated cessation of private water service to the neighborhood on Nov. 15.

A declaration of local state of disaster offers flexibility for short-term funding and other means to provide temporary water to the residents of Green Tree Estates. Mayor Watts’ declaration came after the Nov. 12 City Council Work Session meeting where council members discussed immediate and permanent infrastructure options for the neighborhood. The Council directed City staff to provide temporary water and water storage containers to each residence while other options are being evaluated. City Council will next discuss Green Tree Estates at a special-called meeting on Friday, Nov. 15 at noon.

Public meetings were hosted Oct. 29 and Nov. 11 to inform Green Tree Estates residents of the situation and hear their feedback. The City will continue to communicate updates and work directly with the residents of Green Tree Estates.

See the declaration for more information.
