Code Compliance Corner


Summer is quickly approaching, with many Arlington residents contemplating taking a dip in their swimming pool. Swimming pool maintenance season is an ongoing responsibility. Arlington residents are responsible for ensuring their residential swimming pools and hot tubs are maintained all year, and in compliance with the city's Nuisance Ordinances

A stagnant swimming pool can pose a health hazard to the community.  City ordinances are intended to benefit everyone while making our neighborhoods a better place to live, work, and play. 


The before photo on the right is an example of a stagnant swimming pool, with an after photo showing the violation removed.    


If you see a violation you may report it at, or by calling 817-459-6777
