At the April 10 council meeting, the Town Council unanimously voted to approve the concrete road construction bid from Jagoe-Public Company in the amount of $1,580,404.70 and borrow $1,600,000 over ten years to fund the project.  The next steps are as follows:

  • The Town will send a Notice of Award letter to Jagoe-Public informing them of our decision.
  • Freese Nichols Engineering will complete the contract documents and send them to Jagoe for execution.
  • Jagoe has 15 days to execute the contract and provide the performance, payment, and maintenance bonds.
  • The Town will sign the construction documents, which will serve as the construction contract for the project.
  • The funding from the bonds will be deposited with the Town on May 7th.
  • Once the contract has been signed and the funding is complete, the Town will issue a Notice to Proceed, authorizing Jagoe to begin work.
  • After the Notice to Proceed is delivered to Jagoe, the contract time begins.

This will be one of the largest projects the town has ever undertaken.

The Town has adopted ordinance 11-23, an ordinance regulating the activities of Peddlers and Itinerant Vendors.  This ordinance requires all door to door solicitors to apply for a permit which is subject to an investigation by the Denton County Sheriff's office prior to issuance.  There are a few exceptions that include fund raising activites for youth groups.

 

Always ask to see the Town issued permit from any solicitor and report suspicious behavior to the Sheriff's office.  When possible, include a vehicle description and the license plate number.

Construction on the Lakecrest water main has progressed east to Peninsula Drive.  A tee will be installed on the south west corner of Lakecrest and Peninsula which will allow the mater main to be extended north along Peninsula to service the cul-de-sac.  The water main will also extend south along Peninsula and cross Hillside to serve the eastern portions of Hillside and Peninsula.

 

 

 

At that point, the water main will be installed and the next steps are as follows:

  • Pressurize.
  • Sanitize and collect samples for third party testing.
  • Installation of service lines; working from Peninsula towards Highridge.  This will require Lakecrest to be cross cut for each service connection on the north side of the street.
  • Commissioning the new main line.
  • Installation of new hydrants.
  • Clean up.
  •  

    Target completion for the project is April 24th.  This assumes no weather delays.

     

    We thank you for your patience and apologize for any inconvenience this causes.

    The 35Express project extends approximately 30 miles, through nine cities and two counties, from US 380 in Denton County to I-635 in Dallas County. The Design-Build project is expected to relieve traffic congestion in one of the most heavily traveled corridors in the North Texas region.

    One of the highlights of the project is the construction of managed lanes down the middle of the interstate. Managed or tolled lanes give motorists another option when travelling during peak times. The lanes will have dynamic pricing, which means the cost to use the managed lanes will vary depending on the time of day and roadway congestion.

    Other highlights of construction include:

    • Additional general purpose lanes
    • Reconstruction of the Belt Line Road interchange and FM 407
    • New shared path for pedestrians and cyclists across the Lewisville Lake bridge, and
    • Construction of a new southbound bridge over Lewisville Lake.

    A link to the 35E Express Project can be found can be found on the Home page (Click Welcome on the Top Menu) under Quick Links.  The site contains information regarding lane closures, timelines and road construction plans.

     

     

    A FRIENDLY REMINDER TO DOG OWNERS

     

    PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE OF YOUR NEIGHBORS AND YOUR DOG!

     

    Dogs can make wonderful companions, but unfortunately they are also one of the pets most widely complained against. This is not surprising as they can often be seen (e.g., during walks in public places, etc.) and heard by others. Dog owners can avoid having their pets become a nuisance through proper care and supervision, obedience training, sufficient socialization, and adherence to the local pet laws.

     

    LEASHES - Whilst owners may derive great joy from their dogs, it is important to consider those that do not like or are fearful of animals. In public places, dogs should be kept on a properly fitting collar/harness and leash – using the wrong type will not give the owner sufficient control of the dog. Dog owners are required by law to leash a dog in public.

     

    A copy of the Town of Lakewood Village's Animal Control Ordinance can be found by navigating from the Services tab --> Town Ordinances.
