The city of Lewisville has launched a new online customer support center that will allow website visitors to submit service requests or complaints, easily search a database of more than 400 frequently asked questions about city services, make online water bill and municipal court payments, submit feedback to the city, and access the community calendar.
The new automated engine, developed through a contract with WebQA, will become the first online stop for residents, visitors or vendors with questions about City services or who want to report a need for service. Links to the customer support center are available on the city's homepage at www.cityoflewisville.com and the public portal also can be accessed directly at http://mygovhelp.info/LewisvilleTX.
Visitors are able to set up a brief profile, including their email address, and then can track the progress of their question or request as it is being handled by City staff. Most items also can be submitted anonymously, but then cannot be tracked by the person who made the submission.
Along with several other recent additions to the city website, including an online check register that was implemented last year, the new Customer Support Center is part of a continuing effort to make City information and services more easily accessible to Lewisville residents. A website redesign also is underway that will introduce a variety of new tools for website visitors.

Texas tobacco-free kids day set
Texas Tobacco-Free Kids Day (TTFKD) is an annual awareness day in Texas to encourage students of all ages to live tobacco-free lifestyles. TTFKD is sponsored by the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) and the Texas School Safety Center (TxSSC). The goal of the event, which is on Wednesday, March 21, is to get every school in Texas involved in the effort to help children make healthy choices by not using tobacco.
Know the facts. Nicotine is highly addictive. Tobacco contains more than 7,000 toxins and more than 70 known carcinogens. In the United States, tobacco use kills more than 500,000 people every year -- more than AIDS, alcohol, car accidents, illegal drugs, murders and suicides combined. Plus, if youth under the age of 18 are caught purchasing or possessing tobacco they are required to complete a tobacco awareness program and might have to pay a fine or go to court.
Students, adults and schools can participate in TTFKD by broadcasting tobacco-free messages on announcements, organizing students for a major educational activity or working with community partners to host an event, etc.
For information visit http://www.txssc.txstate.edu/TOB/ttfkd or contact Adam Philyaw at firstname.lastname@example.org

Youth ages 13 through 17 or still in high school are eligible to volunteer as attorneys, bailiffs, judges, jurors or check-in clerks. Lunch will be provided along with door prizes for attendance and participation.
Teen Court is an alternative, voluntary program that offers young offenders an opportunity to make restitution for an offense in lieu of a fine. They are court-ordered to perform community service hours at a non-profit agency, as well as serving as a Teen Court juror.
Instead of paying a fine for the offense, successful completion of the court order dismisses the case from their record. By bringing the youth offender before a jury of peers, the program seeks to prevent unlawful behavior in the future while educating the offender and volunteers about the judicial system. All roles in Teen Court are filled by teenagers, except for an adult judge and a few adult volunteers.
Teen court is held twice a month on Tuesday evenings from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. High school seniors who volunteer can earn a $1,000 scholarship for their participation in the program. Teen Court is open to the public and can be observed by anyone.
To register for Teen Court volunteer training, please contact Teen Court Coordinator Laurie Yonkers at 972-219-3671 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Leave the following information: name, age, school, email address and phone number.
