Street Division

The Streets Division, under the direction of the Director of Public Works, staffed by 37 employees, undertakes road maintenance and construction, in accordance with the City's Five-Year Capital Improvements Program, including chip seals, overlays, reconstruction/reclaiming and paving for all streets and alleys within the corporate city limits. This division also oversees the maintenance of storm drainage systems and appurtenances. In addition, Streets maintains all traffic control signals and devices, pavement markings, striping and traffic control signs. Fifty percent (50%) of Streets’ efforts are directed to streets and alleys maintenance including street repairs and pot hole patching.

The Downtown areas are swept twice a week Mondays and Fridays, and major thoroughfares are swept once a month. Subdivisions are swept by sections as scheduled. Street sweeping is done upon request and contingent on workload. Requests for services may be placed by calling the Streets Division at (956) 292-2122 or Public Works Administration at (956) 388-8210.

Streetlight Repair:
The City of Edinburg gathers malfunctioning streetlight information and forwards it to American Electric Power (AEP) and to Magic Valley Electric Co-op (MVEC). It is noted that city crews do not repair streetlights. All streetlights are owned and maintained by AEP or MVEC. Problems with streetlights in private communities should be referred to the homeowners association or reported directly to AEP or MVEC.

It is important that we have the most accurate description of where the streetlight is located and the nature of the malfunction. The City of Edinburg strives to ensure that streetlights within the City limits are serviced and maintained by the appropriate electic company.
