Happy Wednesday! Here's your daily report.

Dear Fort Worth Report friend,

Good morning! 

In your Wednesday Report: Using funding from the city’s 2018 bond, Fort Worth is making long-needed repairs to Lake Como’s dam. But neighbors were unhappy with the piles of beer bottles, tires and other trash that construction crews left untouched. Reporters Haley Samsel and Chongyang Zhang explore why Fort Worth did not include trash cleanup as part of the project.
