A. Lee Graham Reporter   Fort Worth water customers are invited to participate in a live, interactive meeting focused on landscape watering and irrigation practices. By calling a toll-free number, residents can hear the meeting at 7 p.m. Monday July 8 and respond to polls using their telephone keypad. Among questions customers will be asked are whether twice –weekly outdoor watering should become a year-round requirement and not just a drought measure. Not only may customers dial 855-269-4484 to participate in polling, but they also may participate via text messaging on Charter Cable channel 27 or by visiting the city’s website at www.fortworthtexas.gov/fwtv. The public also may attend the meeting in person at Fort Worth City Council Chambers, City Hall, 1000 Throckmorton St. and participate in polling by texting with their cell phones. The meeting marks the first such interactive event held by Fort Worth since Mayor Betsy Price held her digital Town Hall in 2011. The meeting is intended to solicit customer input as the city mulls potential revisions to its city’s water conservation and drought plans. The city’s Water Department will share the feedback with the City Council in upcoming discussions about Fort Worth’s water management plan. Residents are encouraged to complete an online water survey until noon Thursday July 11 at www.fortworthtexas.gov/water.   lgraham@bizpress.net
