Effective immediately, the City of Tye will move to Stage 2 Water Warning. Tye purchases its water from the City of Abilene, therefore, citizens of Tye must abide by Abilene's water restrictions. 

Water customers may do outside watering of landscape one day every two weeks. Customers' watering schedule is determined by the last digit of the house number or property address. Landscape watering using sprinklers or drip irrigation will be permitted between midnight to 10am and 6pm to midnight on designated days. Shrubs, trees, flowerbeds and gardens can be watered anytime with hand-held hoses and buckets.

Customers' watering schedule is as follows:

7 or 8 - Every other Sunday                  2 - Every other Thursday
9 - Every other Monday                        3 or 4 - Every other Friday
0 - Every other Tuesday                       5 or 6 - Every other Saturday
1 - Every other Wednesday

Failure to abide by these restrictions may result in fines up to $500 and termination of water service.  For more information, contact Tye City Hall. Let's all do our part to conserve our water.

Website Updates
Work is complete on the Animal Control website.

Work begins on the Fire Department site. We hope to have it up by Thanksgiving. Check back for further updates!
Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus will be making their annual visit in Tye on Friday evening, December 5th.  They will be arriving at the Tye Volunteer Fire Station at 6 pm.   Each child will be able to visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus, have their picture made and receive a gift.  Hot dogs and drinks will be served to all that attend.

Tye Volunteer Fire Department will once
again sponsor the "The Christmas Store".  Children can shop for small gifts for their parents with the donation of a non perishable food item.

Jill Collett, TX DOT Traffic Safety Specialist, will be at the Fire Station conducting safety checks on child safety seats.  This will be a good time to have your seats checked out to ensure the safety of your little ones.

American Red Cross Holiday Mail for Heroes
When sending out your Christmas cards this year, don't forget the brave men and women who serve in our Armed Forces. So many of our soldiers are separated from family during the holidays due to deployments or hospital stays.

The American Red Crossis sponsoring the "Holiday Mail for Heroes". By taking your cards
to the local Red Cross office, you can be assured that your cards will be received by and help brighten the holidays for a soldier that cannot make it home for the holidays.

There are some guidelines that the American Red Cross requires when submitting cards. For more information on this program, you can call their local office or visit their website.
