City Receives TML Excellence Award
The City of Schertz was recently awarded a 2023 Texas Municipal League Municipal (TML) Excellence Award for the Schertz EMS Yellow Dot Program in the Public Safety category for cities over 25,000. City Officials and City Staff were in attendance at the TML Conference (October 4 - 6) in Dallas to accept the award.
Schertz EMS launched the Yellow Dot Program to help those who may not be able to communicate their needs when involved in a traffic incident. By placing a yellow dot decal in the vehicle’s rear window, first responders are alerted to check the glove compartment for information to ensure proper medical attention is given.
Schertz Awarded Scenic City Certification
The City of Schertz has been awarded the “Platinum Level” Scenic City certification by the Scenic City Certification Program (SCCP) of Scenic Texas – the highest level of certification offered.
The SCCP supports and recognizes cities for their commitment to high-quality scenic standards. The evaluation is scored based on a model of some 70 possible criteria, ranging from percentage of park and open space, strong litter enforcement laws, street lighting standards, to parking lot landscaping, utility line management, and more.
Schertz is one of 91 Texas municipalities having been awarded a Scenic City certification throughout the years and one of 21 “Platinum Level” cities. Schertz is also the only new applicant to snag the highest rank in 2023 and is currently the only city located in San Antonio’s MSA area to hold this title.
