Does our City of Irving Team work together with Dallas County, Irving ISD, Dallas County Community College District, Spiritual Organizations, Baylor Scott and White, other medical centers, University of Dallas, DART, The State of Texas to find economies, mutual goals, partnerships, assistance, and avoid duplication? If yes, how? If no, why?
The City does have formal and informal partnerships with the organizations listed. Most notably, DART, Irving ISD, and Dallas County for a variety of different projects. Each program or initiative has a point-of-contact that coordinates with their counterpart to avoid duplication of services. They also ensure goals and milestones are being met. For example, our Emergency Management division coordinates with not only other cities in the area but also the County and the State in an effort to battle COVID-19. Our goal is to protect the safety and welfare of our residents while providing the highest level of customer service possible and being fiscally responsible with tax dollars.
