The Public Works Department is made up of various sub-departments including Fleet, Line Repair, Streets/Stormwater and Traffic, Wastewater, and Water. Each week, over 100 employees are responsible for the maintenance, monitoring, and improvement of existing and new infrastructure across League City which includes everything from roadways and traffic lights to storm drains, sewers, and water production.

Below are some tips and projects they are working on:

City departments preparing for the Annual Holiday in the Park Parade

As the cold weather starts to roll in, so does the holiday season and the annual League City parade. Many city departments are involved in the preparation of that beloved occasion. With the regular activities of preparing the streets, redirecting traffic, and cleaning up after the event to assure a safe and fun event. The Public Works Department is also preparing a float to be a part of the festivities.

What’s Blooming this Week?

As we transition from Fall to Winter (and the trees are beginning to lose their leaves), the holly trees are just starting to pop with red berries.  Their bright berries remain all winter and are a great source of food for birds and wildlife.

Here are a few holly varieties for our area:

  • Yaupon Holly (Ilex vomitoria)
  • American Holly (Ilex opaca)
  • Savannah Holly (Ilex x attenuata ‘Savannah’)
  • Nellie R. Stevens Holly (Ilex x ‘Nellie R. Stevens’)
  • Eagleston Holly (Ilex x attenuata ‘Eagleston’)
  • Possumhaw Holly (Ilex decidua); this holly is deciduous—loses its leaves but berries remain

Help Keep League City’s Recycling Center Clean

Public Works is asking citizens to please help us keep the League City Recycling Center located at 1535 Dickinson Ave operating properly by following some guidelines when disposing of recyclable materials. When Non-recyclable materials are placed in the containers, they can contaminate the container by making the items inside non-recyclable. Recently we have had a large influx of items that should have been disposed of as trash.  We have had a wide range of items such as medical waste, commercial debris, large car parts and shopping carts.

Shown here is a picture of what the recycle center many times looks like on Mondays after a long weekend.
