The City of Tye is in the process of rolling out our new website to better serve our citizens. One obvious change are the buttons used to navigate around the website. The larger buttons allow those who use tablets and smart phones to easily select the page they would like to view. Other enhancements will include the ability to fill out forms, such as water applications and permits, online. This will eliminate the need to come to City Hall to pick up the forms. There will also be a mobile site you can access from your smart phone, giving you the ability to view basic information and still pay your water bills and fines online.

The website is still a work in progress and not all pages are done. Over the next few weeks, we will continue bringing pages online until the site is complete. You can view updates on the progress on the left side of this page. If you have any suggestions or ideas on helping us to improve this site, please e-mail or call us using the contact us link at the top.

"Fatal Vision" Obstacle Course at Haunted Hangar
Teaching about the dangers of impaired driving is important to the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT). In Texas, there is a traffic crash about every 20 minutes involving a driver under the influence of alcohol. In 2013, DUI-alcohol-related traffic fatalities accounted for 1 in 3 of all Texas roadway deaths - or nearly 1,100.

On October 31 from 7pm to 10pm, TxDOT will host a free "fatal vision" obstacle course. The course will be located at the Haunted
Hangar, at the Maintenance Yard, behind the cemetary. Participants will drive a pedal car through a coned obstacle course wearing "fatal vision" goggles. The goggles simulate impairment of the sight.

The goal at the event is to remind people that even small amounts of alcohol can impair a person's ability to safely operate a vehicle. Alcohol slows reaction time, reduces the ability to properly gauge speed or distance and impairs vision.

Free hot dogs will be available to those attending as long as supplies last. Limit one hot dog per person.
Website Updates
Work continues on the Police Department's web pages. We hope to have their pages up by October 25.

Once the Police Department's web pages are done, we will begin working on the Fire Department's web pages. Check back for further updates!
