11/19/2002, the City of Sweeny adopted Ordinance No. 100-03
requiring all houses and buildings to be numbered.
The ordinances states, in part, "...all business establishments,
residences and public buildings with the City of Sweeny, Texas,
shall be numbered in accordance with the system provided by the City
of Sweeny, Texas, and shall have placed on the front of the building
a street number of a size and color legible enough to be seen by the
public from the street in front of the building..."
The City still has quite a few buildings and houses that are not
numbered. The police department is going door to door handing out
warning notices. If you receive a notice, you have 30 days to affix
a street number corresponding with the number of your address on the
front of your building/house. Should you fail to place such
numbering within 30 days of the notice, a citation may be filed
against the home/business owner.
It is our sincere hopes and wishes that these warnings are heeded and
no charges have to be filed in this matter. Our intention is
to help our public safety entities (POLICE, FIRE,
EMS) locate houses/buildings much quicker when responding to
calls (potentially life-threatening calls where seconds could make
difference between life and death.)
