Some Fort Worth city offices will remain closed on Monday due to icy roadways, but all essential personnel and services, such as water and public safety — police, fire and code compliance — will operate on a normal schedule.

Meanwhile, the city’s Building Standards Commission and Historic & Cultural Landmarks Commission meetings originally scheduled for Monday Dec. 9 have been postponed and will be rescheduled soon, according to a city news release.

Any Municipal Court dockets affected by the closure will be rescheduled. The Fort Worth Convention Center and Will Rogers Memorial Center will be open for scheduled events.

The city encourages residents to curb their travel while city and Texas Department of Transportation crews work to address street conditions.

The city’s Office of Emergency Management will monitor weather conditions and note any changes in service, program or facility status on the city’s website.

Collection schedules revised for curbside garbage, recycling, bulk waste, yard trimmings

Friday collection routes will be serviced Monday Dec. 9, and regular curbside collections will shift by one day for the week of Dec. 9.

Monday collection will take place on Tuesday, Tuesday on Wednesday, Wednesday on Thursday, Thursday on Friday and Friday on Saturday.
