Appointment of Fire Chief

Chief John Brown is retiring from the City of Hurst after serving our community for almost 15 years as Fire Chief. We are grateful for his dedicated service and the positive mark he is leaving on the city. We wish him and his family the very best in retirement.

As a true reflection of the City of Hurst’s commitment to a strong leadership culture, the selection process for the next Fire Chief remained internal. Palla has provided dedicated service to the City of Hurst for 31 years, starting as a Fire Fighter, and then moving up to Driver/Engineer, Lieutenant and Assistant Fire Chief for the last 15 years.

We look forward to David Palla taking on his new role as Fire Chief.

Where We Live Magazine

City of Hurst Where We Live Magazine Summer 2017Welcome to the Summer 2017 edition of Where We Live

Summer is officially on its way, and there are a multitude of exciting things going on in Hurst this season! For starters, our newly renovated Central Aquatics Center is scheduled to open Memorial Day Weekend. All summer long, our residents and visitors can enjoy both of our recently updated aquatics centers to cool down from the Texas heat! All of the details on the new Central Aquatics Center are listed on page 53.

Back in February, you had the opportunity to let us know what improvements you would like to see made in the City of Hurst by taking our Citizen Survey, and your city council and city staff have been working hard to put a plan in place based on your feedback. To learn more about that process and what’s next for Transforming Hurst, check out page 17.
