City Council is currently considering adding a formalized code of ethics to its body of ordinances that govern the actions and activities of its members. The new ordinance would define several unethical behaviors not adequately addressed by the city charter or state law and provide council with guidelines for warning, correcting or censuring members who engage in such acts.
Anyone who bought a picket or had a tile or painting at the original Schertz Playscape and would like to have them returned, please email Sandy Bryant, Parks Department at SBryant@Schertz.com or call her at 210-619-1854.

What is believed to be the first permanently installed StoryWalk in South Texas opened in the Playscape next to the Schertz Public Library Sunday, November 16.
The project was done by Girl Scout Cadette Morgan Russell for her Silver Award Project that required 60-hours of service. A group of supporters including Mayor Michael Carpenter, City Councilmember Grumpy Azzoz and Guadalupe County Commissioner Jim Wolverton and his wife Kay attended the ceremony.
The StoryWalk concept combines reading and exercise and fun. Russell worked with Schertz Library Director Melissa Uhlhorn on plans for the StoryWalk and the Girl Scout raised money to get the project started.
