Maintaining Your Property
The City of Woodway is proud of its community and neighborhoods. We are asking for your assistance in maintaining your property by keeping it cleaned and mowed throughout the year. Brush and debris must be cut to specs (no more than 5 feet in length and no more than 4 inches in diameter) and stacked neatly by the curb to be picked up by the refuse company (brush pickup is every Wednesday). To report any of the above offenses or for questions regarding code enforcement within the City of Woodway, please call Code Enforcement Officer Albert Lopez at 254-772-4470.
The Animal Control Section consists of one certified animal control officer who is responsible for responding to all incoming calls of lost, stray, vicious and injured animals. He is responsible for patrolling the City and enforcing ordinances and state laws relating to animal control. The Animal Control Officer also participates in the community by providing animal safety seminars to children at schools throughout the City.
A Variety of Animals
The animal control officer has responded to calls for cows, horses, pigs, and turkeys. While most calls are for domestic animals, there also are calls for animals of a more exotic nature that live in the area. The ravine is home to animals such as:
Each year, thousands of lost animals are taken in by shelters and many animals never make it back home to their owners. Micro-chipping offers a pet owner the only permanent method of identifying their pet and linking them back to the owner. Animal Control, shelters, and veterinary clinics are all equipped with a microchip scanner that shows the chip’s identification number. Remember, our goal is to help return each pet to its home.
If You Have Lost Your Pet
If you have lost your pet, or would like more information about the micro-chipping program, or to report an animal, or need more information on animal control, please contact Albert Lopez, Animal Control, Woodway Public Safety Department at 254-772-4470.
