Cade Cove Water and Sewer Main Replacement  Project


The City has started construction on Cades Cove, Cades Cove Circle, and Mill Wheel streets (near the Post Office), to install new water and sewer mains. This neighborhood, and the infrastructure to support it, was de veloped in 1977 as the Old Mill Unit #3 subdivision, which means that water and sewer mains in this area are 41 years old and have been experiencing main breaks. The project is partially grant funded from the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program from Bexar County. The entire project is expected to last 90 days, but the contractor will assure that the roadway is open to residents that live on that street. For more information, please contact the Public Works Department at (210) 681-1232 x 201.
Carbon Monoxide Safety Tips

Carbon monoxide, often called the invisible killer is an invisible, odorless, colorless gas. If you suspect a carbon monoxide leak in your home, in the same way as if there was a fire, you should leave your property immediately and dial 911. Please take a moment and read the safety tips

ON IT


The City of Leon Valley is bringing new life and enforcement to the ON IT  program. All City Departments are teaming together to bring more attention and compliance to your neighborhood issues and concerns. The intention of the   ON IT  program is to have a direct means of reporting your community concerns regarding streets, sidewalks, abandoned homes, loose or dead animal reports, permitting concerns, noise or other neighborhood nuisances and much more.

The goal is to ensure that City service requests and information is handled, as promptly as possible, with a high level of customer service. Report it and an  ON IT team member will respond as quickly as possible.

AACOG's CARE Program Provides Rides Home From Work In Emergency Situations



Taking the bus, carpooling, cycling, or walking to work is good for the air as well as your pocketbook. But what do you do when an emergency comes up and you need to get home in a hurry, but you're stuck at work without your car? To promote greener commuting by reducing that concern, the Alamo Area Council of Governments' Certified Auto Ride in an Emergency (CARE) Program offers those who've commuted by alternative means a reimbursement of up to $50 for a ride home from work when an emergency arises.
 
To receive a reimbursement up to four times per year, you must: 1) live and work within the eight-county greater San Antonio area ; 2) carpool /vanpool, take the bus, bike, or walk to work at least three times per week; and 3) keep your commuting information current on NuRide.com, the online system AACOG uses to gather commuting statistics.  While it's free for individuals to use, NuRide offers not only CARE Program reimbursements, but rewards from more than 100 businesses.
