Will the city be updating us when the the quota for the wristbands has been met?
Permits should be needed to pop fireworks in the city limits. This is ridiculous! Popping fireworks since 7pm?! "Hey my neighbors popping fireworks wanna wish you a Happy 8:58pm"
THANK YOU TO EDINBURG CITY FOR THE GREAT WORK THE PUBLIC WORK DEPARTMENT DID IN OUR MON MACK ESTATES SUBDIVISION A neighbor placed the complaint/suggestion in the city's SeeClickFix page -that we needed the sweeper in our subdivision- because our streets were very dirty and the grass between the sidewalks' concrete and the pavement was growing too much. Edinburg City's Public Works came the next day and the sweeper cleaned our streets twice and cleaned all the overgrown grass on our streets. Of course, there are people who could care less if our community is been cleaned and they did not move their vehicle. Also, there was a trash plastic container- that is not supposed to be on the street but the neighbor could care less. But Public Work's employees moved the container- which is the only one on the street- and placed it on this careless neighbor easement. A big tractor came and removed all the grass growing between the concrete and pavement and our subdivision is sparkling clean- minus people who use our streets as personal parking spaces. What really makes me be proud of Public Works is that Vince Romero -the supervisor- was present checking that the city's employees, under his command, were doing a great job. THANK YOU VERY MUCH !!! www.SeeClickFix.com
It might make your city a safer place if you put that raging psychopath Emmanuel Duron behind bars instead of letting walk the street acting out violently on whoever crosses his path!
That thug football player of yours must be expelled and charged with assault!!!!! Is that how you raise kids in Edinburg????
this is sad needs to be changed these people are responsible for their trucks and can't leave them unsecured
City of Edinburg...I was trying to brag about my hometown and couldn’t seem to find a couple bragging (Fun Facts) points What are some (if any) key fun facts? First RGV city to establish higher education (a University of Texas Academic Institution). Anyone else have any fun facts they would like to add/share
Amazing job you guys are doing with solid waste management.....
This video is to bring awareness of these branches that need to be cut down they are obstructing a stop sign why wait for a accident to happen let’s take care of this Saftey issue now... because unless your from that area or Edinburg it self you won’t know that there is a stop sign there till it’s too late and I bet if a sober mind can barley see it a drunk one will probably won’t either.. let’s try and prevent this hazard from hurting anyone else We witnessed a near miss next time it could be worst that’s all thank you... and yes I know I was recording while driving but it had to be done for the purpose of the video to show a drivers point of view it won’t be done ever again
