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.

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.
