The Neighborhood Services Division provides education and enforcement services to the public in order to minimize environmental and consumer health hazards. This is achieved through the promotion of public health and safety best practices in accordance with local and state ordinances, rules, and laws.
The department seeks to protect the City of Schertz through the investigating and abatement of the following: trash, rubbish, debris, junked vehicles, overgrown weeds/grass, and unmaintained pools.
The department also conducts routine inspections for all food establishments, all public and semi-public aquatic facilities, and responds to citizen complaints concerning a variety of public health/quality-of-life concerns.
Code Enforcement is within the City’s Neighborhood Services Division Department and works closely with the planning, zoning, and inspections process.
