Community Outreach

Public Works has a very active public education and community outreach program. Under the umbrella of Waste Minimization, staff members engage various high schools, volunteers and community service candidates to take on recycling initiatives, trash clean ups and graffiti abatements.

As part of the education and outreach requirements within the State's Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System Permit (MS4), staff also conducted storm drain stenciling, information distribution, and training. Other staff initiatives to heighten our social consciousness about resource protection included resaca clean ups, Movie at the Park, Keep Texas Beautiful Campaign, and participation in the inaugural Valley Environmental Summit.
