Public Works

Public Works Staff: Vicente Macias

The Public Works Department oversees the preventative maintenance of safe and efficient roadways and Right-of-Ways within city limits, the city’s facilities maintenance, animal control, and solid waste services.

Animal Control

Animal Control is governed largely by the City’s Animal Control Ordinance which prohibits animals from running at-large. The City also has a “Dangerous Dog” ordinance which prohibits a dog from attacking another animal or person. Any violations of these ordinances may constitute a fine payable by the owner. Should you require Animal Control Services during business hours, contact City Hall at 210-494-3671. After hours, contact the Police Patrol phone at 210-494-6111.

Lost & Found Critters

For the removal of deceased animals, please contact Waste Management at 210-368-5000.


Public Works has only one cage and cannot trap wild animals any longer. Two companies that can help you are Tru Tech Inc, 210-224-3005, or Critter Control of San Antonio, 210-499-4225.

Solid Waste Services

Waste Management handles all solid waste pickup for common household waste in the municipality’s residential districts. Waste pickup is scheduled for Wednesdays and Saturdays. Place all items at the edge of the street by 8 a.m. the day of pickup.

Waste pickup in the business district is made directly between the business and the provider of his/her choice.

Recycling of plastics, bottles, and newspaper is scheduled for Wednesdays. Magazines, cardboard, and any type of paper can be recycled by placing them in the dumpster located at the front of City Hall.
