CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The city of Corpus Christi will be making some changes to its Neighborhood Service Department, according to a release from city officials.

Starting June 1, three divisions within the Neighborhood Services Department — Grant Monitoring, Housing and Homelessness, Animal Care Services and Code Enforcement — will be restructured.

"The restructuring is designed to improve the divisions' performance, responsiveness, and effectiveness," the release states.

The city provided a breakdown of the changes:

  • Animal Care Services will become its own city department and will look to recruit a new director starting next week. The city will also conduct an operational review of the department with prior approved funding in the Fiscal Year 2023 operating budget.
  • Grant Monitoring, Housing and Homelessness will become a Planning and Community Development Department division.
  • Code Enforcement will become a division of the Development Services Department.

The latter two divisions will keep operating with current funding sources, including the General Fund and grant dollars, the release states.
