When the Street Department receives a pothole request, the maintenance crew chief investigates to determine the nature and extent of the problem. If the problem needs immediate attention or can be improved with the placement of asphalt, the Street Department will make a temporary asphalt repair. As the department proceeds with its annual infrastructure repair program, temporary repairs will be evaluated to determine priority for permanent concrete repairs.
If you cannot locate the position in the City of Garland Career Center, the position is no longer available.
Your first concern should be water extraction. It might be necessary to contact a professional extraction service, normally located under "carpet" service in the Yellow Pages. If the floors have carpet, it may be necessary to pull up the carpet and pull the pad out to dry. If you do not dry the carpet and pad, permanent damage (including mold and mildew) may occur. If your furniture becomes wet, place aluminum foil under furniture legs to prevent "bleeding" on the carpet. If you suffer only damp carpets, furniture, and walls, adjust your air conditioner to "cool" and your furnace to "hot." Both air conditioners and heaters dry the air, and the drier the air, the faster your personal belongings will dry. Any remaining mud and dirt on the walls should be cleaned with plain water and a brush.
In Garland, the wastewater collection and stormwater systems are separate.
The sanitary sewer system collects wastewater. Wastewater is used water that drains from toilets, sinks, household drains and some industrial drains. The wastewater travels through wastewater collection pipes to a wastewater treatment plant where it is treated to strict quality standards. The treated affluent is then released into Duck Creek, a tributary of the Trinity River.
Stormwater enters the storm drainage system through street inlets and drainage channels and goes to lakes and rivers untreated. Stormwater is run-off from rainfall.
The Office of the City Secretary is located at City Hall, 200 N Fifth Street,75040. The office is on the fourth floor.
Each job posting includes an overview of the position, responsibilities and minimum qualifications. If you meet the minimum qualifications, please submit an application.
The Street Department replaces several deteriorating streets each year. To determine which streets to replace, information from the Pavement Management System - a program that rates the condition of each street and alley - is evaluated. The Street Department staff then proceeds with a field inspection for each replacement consideration to determine the streets and alleys that warrant replacement in the upcoming fiscal year. This evaluation process occurs in the month of April each year.
A severe weather watch is issued by the National Weather Service when conditions are favorable for severe weather to develop. A severe weather warning is issued by the National Weather Service when severe weather has been detected in an area either by radar indicators or trained storm spotters. For more information, please see our Watches vs. Warnings webpage.
Copies of agendas and minutes are found in the office of the City Secretary, 200 N. Fifth Street. Current agendas and minutes are also found on this website.
Claim forms are available at the City Secretary's office or may be obtained on-line (Claim Form). Claim forms are filed in the City Secretary's Office, 200 N. Fifth Street.
Yes. Standing water is typically caused when the pavement settles and the water can't drain. Once a request of this type is received, staff will investigate and collect elevation data to determine the extent of the problem. If the surrounding pavement is in good condition, it is possible to have the department contractor inject polyurethane material under the pavement to lift it back to its original elevation. Another option is to grind the pavement to eliminate a high spot in the street. If the pavement is in poor condition, the Street Department will use asphalt pavement to level the street.
Board or Commission applications are available in the City Secretary's office or on-line (Board & Commission Application). A completed application can be submitted to the City Secretary's office in person, by mail, or FAX. Appointments to boards and commissions are made by Council.

If the forecasters say to take cover, please do so immediately. Do not wait to hear the warning siren.
