Code Enforcement


Together We Make the Community Better


City of Schertz Code Officers make sure city codes and ordinances are met so Schertz continues to be a livable city. We do this by educating, collaborating and partnering with neighborhoods, local businesses, non-profits, and other City of Schertz Departments.


The Marshal’s Office Environmental Health Division maintains the balance between code compliance and code enforcement by implementing programs to ensure a minimum standard is met.


Code Officers identify dangerous and substandard conditions in each of the districts they are assigned.


City codes and ordinances have been created to protect the health, safety, and quality of life for the citizens of Schertz. If there is a problem property in your neighborhood, call 3-1-1.
