Our street sweepers clean about 163 miles of street each month in the City of Schertz. In order to maintain all of the roadways, the City asks that residents do not dump, push, sweep, or blow yard waste- including leaves, tree limbs, or brush- into City streets or right of ways.
The City of Schertz began a Street Preservation and Maintenance program (SPAM) after the 2016 MicroPAVER Roadway Assessment Report of the City’s Street Infrastructure. This report helped kick-off the Public Works Street Department Crack Seal and Pavement Preservation Program. The MicroPAVER report listed streets needing Maintenance and Rehabilitation, e.g. Crack Sealing (CS), Slurry Seal (SS), or Bituminous Surface Treatment.
Drainage is responsible for keeping all city channels, alleyways, and all city right-of-ways mowed and cleared of debris and buildup of silt.
180.40 Acres of Drainage
118.7 Acres of Right-of-Ways
5.15 Acres of Alleyways
