It's a time of new beginnings. And whether you're working to become a healthier version of yourself or de-clutter your home, we have ways to help. From free trips to the landfill to discounted water aerobics classes, Neighborhood Network News is a to-do list you won't mind tackling.

✅ Get a head start on spring cleaning

Did you know Arlington Water Utilities customers receive two free trips to the City landfill every year? And starting in 2020, there's no need to download a coupon. Simply show your drivers license or state ID at the landfill (and make sure the name and address on the ID match the water bill account holder information.)

✅ Take a ride with Via

Arlington's Via rideshare service continues to grow and just expanded its service area farther into southeast Arlington. Via offers flat-ride rides across the City. Click the link above for more information or search "Via" in your app store.

✅ Make a splash with winter pool discounts

Hugh Smith Indoor Pool is offering discounts all January. Whether you're looking for a family day in the water or a challenging aerobics class, this is the month to save. 

✅ Text us!

The City of Arlington has launched Citibot, an interactive text messaging tool that provides a new way for residents to report issues in the community, such as potholes or stray animals, or find information about city services and events, such as permits, public meetings or trash and recycling pickup dates.

With Citibot, residents and visitors throughout The American Dream City can text a short question, such as “How do I get a pet license?,” and an interactive chatbot will reply with a relevant link to information available on the City’s website. Users can also text key words, such as recycling pickup or street light, to report an issue by street address. When the City fixes the reported issue, Citibot will follow up to let the person know their query has been resolved.

To start a conversation with Citibot, Arlington residents can text “hello” to 817-409-4110.
