Saturday, May 13, 2017 – City Manager Lon Squyres and family teamed up with volunteers of the Keep Jacinto City Clean Committee members (KJCCC) to remove weeds at the city hall annex monument. Annually the city and KJCCC select a project(s) to work on together.

Jacinto City workers, after combing the city picked up over 517 old tires.

City Manager Lon Squyres said, “In addition to our yearly tire round up day, we will also pickup tires throughout the year. It is in everybody’s interest that we remove old tires to prevent neighborhood blight and eliminate breeding places for mosquitoes.”

Citizens can place their old tires at curbside for picking up because city workers cannot enter private property. Resident’s can call Public Works at 713-453-7411 for tire pick up at their address. Anyone caught bringing tires into the city that doesn’t belong to a resident can be fined.
