Property Maintenance

The City of Woodway is proud of its community and neighborhoods. The City would like to ask for residents’ assistance in maintaining their property by keeping it cleaned and mowed throughout the year. Brush and debris must be cut to specs, which is no more than 5 feet in length and no more than 4 inches in diameter, and then stacked neatly by the curb to be picked up by the refuse company.  Brush pickup is available 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.

Animal Control

The City’s Animal Control consists of one certified Animal Control Officer who is responsible for responding to all incoming calls of lost, stray, vicious, and injured animals.  The Officer is responsible for patrolling the City to enforce ordinances and state laws relating to animal control, and he also participates in the community by providing animal safety seminars to children at schools throughout the City.  Please contact Woodway Public Safety Department at 254.772.4470 to speak with the City’s Animal Control Officer, Albert Lopez, for lost pets, to report an animal, or for more general information on Animal Control.

  • Deer
  • Fox
  • Possums
  • Raccoons
  • Skunks
  • Snakes

Microchipping and Lost Pets

Each year, thousands of lost animals are taken in by shelters, and many animals never make it back home to their owners. Microchipping 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 microchip’s identification number.  The goal for Animal Control is to help return each pet to its home.  The City partners with a local veterinary clinic to host an annual Microchipping Clinic to allow residents to have pets microchipped at no cost.   For more information on this service, please contact Animal Control at 254.772.4470.
