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:

Asphalt Overlay and Rehab on School Rd

Streets crews are working to complete the asphalt overlay and rehab of School Rd before the start of the school year. This small segment of roadway is important as it not only serves League City Elementary but now also League City’s Community Center. Work is expected to be completed by July 28th and ready for use.

Maintenance on Watercraft Trailers

Over the past few years Fleet has been working with public safety departments maintaining and repairing watercrafts and their accompanying trailers.  The most recent repair order is for a trailer that pulls the Police Department’s 21.7-foot Gulf Coast boat.  Fleet staff has replaced all the running boards and padding to ensure easy loading and unloading of the marine unit.

“What is Lichens?” 

  • Common on trees (especially seen on Live Oaks around town)
  • Greyish-blue-green and may be flat, crusty, or brush-like 
  • Not harmful to trees but may see larger populations on declining trees
  • No chemical control necessary; focus on increasing tree vigor
