Sign reading Closed for Business due to Weather

City of Coppell administrative offices and facilities will be closed on Thursday, February 3 and Friday, February 4, 2022, due to the expected inclement weather. Essential personnel will remain on hand to respond to emergencies and continue to offer necessary services to residents. 

In the event of an emergency, dial 911. To contact non-emergency dispatch, please call 972-304-3610 or dial *247 on your cell phone. For assistance turning off your water, please call the Public Works after-hours line at 972-462-5150.

Republic Services has also announced that it will shift Thursday collection to Friday and Friday collection to Saturday. This is subject to change based on weather, and Republic Services will provide an update on Thursday afternoon. 

Precipitation transitioned to freezing rain, sleet, and snow Wednesday evening, and temperatures have dropped below freezing. Coppell Public Works crews have treated roadways and bridges, but icy conditions still exist – especially on residential streets, alleyways, bridges, and overpasses. Roads are treacherous, and conditions are not expected to improve until temperatures rise above freezing on Saturday. Avoid the roads, if possible. If you must travel, please use caution when driving. 

The City of Coppell is committed to keeping the community safe and informed. City staff will continue to monitor the weather over the next few days and provide updates as appropriate. 

Additionally, the City of Coppell's Emergency Management division recommends all residents utilize three different methods of emergency notification, such as text or email alerts from NotifyCoppell, a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) All-Hazards Radio, and a smartphone application. Visit the City’s Preparing for Winter Weather page for more information or to view the preparation checklist.
