I got an email from the City of Frisco as part of a mass emailing reference lawn watering restrictions. It was just a reminder of the times allowed to water. I see violations of these restrictions daily by businesses, churches, homes and HOAs , etc. Will the City of Frisco be issuing fines for violating the time of day restrictions like they adamantly did during the drought restrictions?

I think that is a more fair approach than punishing those of us that adhere to the restrictions by further restricting the times and days which, in this heat, could drastically negatively affect our lawns.

I also noticed the City of Frisco started a new volunteer program that allows citizens to watch out for and report City Code Violations in their neighborhood. Are water restrictions part of the Code to be reported by those volunteers? If not, why not?

Thank you

What can be done about water continually running from a residence into the street even when it is not raining or after the sprinkler has run.

We are currently not issuing citations for time of day restrictions. I do not anticipate watering day restrictions unless dry weather conditions continue. We would more strictly enforce the time of day restrictions before other restrictions are put in place.

The new program is the FACT (Frisco Assistant Code Team). This is for code violations only. We just had a training class for the first group to enter the program this past Saturday. That program isnít geared to look for water violations. They were told that if they see them or a number of other city concerns that we gave them that they are to let us know and we will get it to the right place.

If you have other concerns, please contact my office at 972-292-5800. Thanks.
