The City of Arlington was awarded Silver status from the Dallas-Fort Worth Clean Cities Coalition in recognition of its contributions to reduce petroleum use and improve air quality. This is the third time Arlington has been recognized by the DFW Clean Cities Coalition. Awards were presented based on entities’ scores on the DFW Clean Cities Annual Survey.

Arlington’s fleet currently includes eight electric vehicles. Additionally, Arlington installed electric vehicle charging stations for these fleet vehicles at strategic locations throughout the city thanks to two Texas Commission on Environmental Quality grants.

You can read more about the award in the latest edition of the Leveraging Technology newsletter. This edition also features the City’s Street Tracker website, which provides transparency and up-to-date information on street maintenance.

All quarterly City Council priority newsletters are now produced in a digital formal, allowing for layers of additional video content and important links.

The Arlington City Council has identified “Put Technology to Work” as one of six priorities. Technology is an essential aspect of daily life and has quite the impact on our organization, residents, visitors and businesses. It is also integral in achieving the City’s other priorities: Invest in Our Economy, Support Youth and Families, Enhance Regional Mobility, Champion Great Neighborhoods and Build Unity.
