  • My apartment complex told us that they cant open the pool up because the city refuses to come out to inspect due to covid. But as I drive around and look at other apartments in my area, I notice how they have pools open. I am upset because I feel like I am being lied too.

    imhannahg asked 2 months ago

    It’s actually regulated by the State. Similar to other public businesses, by Executive Order, Pools open to the public or a community may operate at 50% of the normal operating limit. Opening is at the owner's discretion. There are some that are open at 50% and some are staying closed because it is hard for their staff to enforce the 50% rule. Technically spas/hot tubs are to remain closed since the Executive Order only mentioned pools. The City will/has performed inspections again, it is the owner's discretion.  


  • There is a notice posted about a zoning change for the old Huffines auto dealership grounds. What are the plans for that area? Thanks.

    donaldduck asked 8 months ago

    The applicant has requested a zoning change to maintain the base zoning district of Commercial with an overlay for a Planned Development to allow for a combination of uses and design regulations to facilitate the construction and operation of a automobile and truck rental, and lease car sales for Enterprise.

  • Why are homeowners allowed to park RV's on the streets and in driveways and LIVE IN THEM? And what can be done to stop this? It's trashing up our neighborhood!!

    texasfishergal1 asked 7 months ago

    The Code of Ordinances allows boats/ trailers/ & RV’s to be parked in the street for no more than 48 consecutive hours. Additionally, boats/trailers/ & RV’s may be parked on someone’s driveway so long as the driveway is paved, or if on a lot 3 acres or more is an all-weather surface.

    If a vehicle has been parked in the street for more than 48 hours residents can inform the Police Department so that they may investigate the situation and take appropriate action if needed through the city's report a concern center.  

    If the vehicle is parked on a driveway on private property and is believed to be currently being used as an on site dwelling unit, residents can reach out to Code Enforcement so that they may investigate the complaint. Residents may contact the Code Enforcement Officer through the report a concern center, by email at codeenforcement@cityofcorinth.com or by phone at (940) 498-3274.

  • There is a zoning change request sign posted on the property formerly occupied by Huffines just south of Post Oak and I-35E. To what are you asking the zoning to be changed? And what are the plans for that property? Thanks.

  • Do the city provide Summer Camps for kids?

    hmarrero asked 8 months ago

    Yes, the City provides Summer Camp programs.  Registration for the camps will begin on April 1st.  The Parks and Recreation is currently developing the program for this summer and details will be published soon.  Follow us on facebook at @cityofofcorinth to receive udpates.  

  • Why can't my water deposit be returned? Service 2007, zero late payments.

    growth2020 asked 8 months ago

    Good question!   In regards to holding of deposits on active accounts.  City ordinance (number 90-09-20-70, Section 1.08) only allows for the refund of deposits at the time service is discontinued.  We will be reviewing city ordinances related to Utility Billing within the next six months and will be sure to review this section.  


  • Were you apprised that the roof on the Lighthouse Day Care at Robinson and Poast Oak was going to be red plastic? It’s so ugly. Did you know a shade tree would be removed on Post Oak to make an entry lane to the DayCare?

    Susiesunshine asked 8 months ago

    Thanks for reaching out!  The Metal roof is an approved application.   State Legislature prohibits cities from regulating exteriors. Therefore the corporate color used on the roof is allowable. The city has also historically required brick exteriors on most structures and now they can be any material.  The trees that were removed were mitigated and are going to be replaced with four (4) – Four inch caliper trees within the median.


  • I purchased my home in 2009. I was happy to see the Lake Cities Library nearby. Conversely I was terribly dismayed when the City Council made a decision that I could no longer use that library because the city was no longer supporting library funding. Andrew Carnegie, a proponent for free libraries for all.The city is neglecting all ages of our population. This situation is intolerable for our residents and must be ameliorated! Signed, Sandra L. Dollins, MLIS, Master of Library and Information Services.

    Sandra L. Dollins, MLIS asked 8 months ago

    Thanks for reaching out!  The City of Corinth partnered with the City of Lake Dallas to provide library services to the residents of Corinth.  Annual Library Cards can be obtained at the Lake Cities Library.  The library card fee of $25 is paid by the City of Corinth.  If you have questions about the library services please contact the Lake Cities Library at (940) 497-3566. 


  • How do I become involved in the building plans? We do NOT need another Burger King. We already had one and it failed. We have too many burger fast food places as it is. How can I petition so that we can have something else in its place? I also am not sure why we rejected Bucees for light pollution but allowed ANOTHER car dealership. We need smarter building choices if we are to continue to evolve and improve our city.

    Atlawson12 asked 9 months ago

    The City accepts applications for Boards and Commissions (https://www.cityofcorinth.com/bc/webform/board-committee-application-form) and the City Council appoints applicants to boards and commissions in September of each year. For residents interested in Planning and Development applying to be on the Planning and Zoning Commission is the best way to impact what is being constructed in Corinth.

    Additionally, the City is currently working on updates to its Comprehensive Plan and Parks and Trails plan. We will be holding 2 events at Comb’s Coffee tomorrow, one at 8am and another at 5pm, this would be a good opportunity to provide feedback on what they would like the future of Corinth to look like.

    That being said, municipalities cannot dictate specific establishments that may or may not come into the City. If for example a piece of property is zoned as “commercial” then any use that falls within that commercial district may be built with no additional approvals from the City. So, if the zoning classification of a property allows for a “restaurant with a drive-through” the City can’t control which restaurant is ultimately built there, it could be a Burger King, or it could be an In or Out, or even a Starbucks.


  • Taxes are ridiculously high. They keep going higher. I am contemplating moving because of this. Are there any plans in the NEAR future to reduce taxes? They keep upping the value of my home and it's not even comparable. I have to go each year and battle unfairness. If this continues to climb at this rate I'm out. $10000 a year is insane. This is the limit you can deduct. You will see others start to leave as well. What's being done?

    kathy T asked 9 months ago

    Appraisal districts are responsible for appraising property for property tax purposes for each taxing unit.  The City cannot challenge the appraisal of any specific property nor does it have any authority in the process.  The City does control the property tax that is used to calculate the city taxes paid each year.  .  In Corinth it is the city (with a tax rate of 54.5 cents per $100 of value), Denton County (with a tax rate of 22.5 cents per $100 of value) and either Lake Dallas Independent School District ( with a tax rate of 156.8 cents per $100 of value) or Denton Independent School District (with a tax rate of 147.0 cents per $100 of value) depending upon where you live. 

    Senate Bill 2 passed by legislatures last year, makes numerous changes to the process for adopting property tax rates that includes a cap on the tax that city can impose.  The City budget and proposed city tax rate will be reviewed by the City Council during the months of August and September.   Additionally, the City Council will hold several public hearings providing property owners an opportunity to speak on the budget and city tax rate.  We encourage all interested residents to visit our budget transparency page for public hearing dates and other key budget meeting dates. https://mycorinth.com/FY2020-21-budget
