Jacinto City, TX. — Saturday, April 7, 2018 — Volunteers of two organizations kicked off the city’s annual cleanup campaign.

A new group of volunteers going by the name of “DON’T BE MEAN, KEEP TEXAS CLEAN” (DBMKTC) joined forces with the Keep Jacinto City Clean Committee volunteers (KJCCC) to help keep the city cleaner and nicer looking.

KJCCC planted Oleanders along Market Street and the DBMKTC picked up litter along a mile of Market Street.

City Manger Lon Squyres said to prevent the deadly ZIKA virus, citizens must keep grass and weeds mowed, including their utility easements. The free Annual Tire Roundup Day is scheduled for 8 AM, Saturday, May 19th, and citizens must place the tires out front on the edge of the street. The annual Pet Vaccination Clinic is set from 9 AM to 3 PM, Saturday, April 21, at the Public Works Facility (12202 Market). Jacinto City citizens can get their pets vaccinated at a reduced price and buy the required 2018 Green pet license tags.

Squyres said Building Permits is required BEFORE starting any building related projects, including but not limited to roofs, driveways, fences, air condition or heating, electrical and plumbing. Permits must be posted visible from the street or citations and fines can result.
