Items will only be collected from the drop box between 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday.

  2. Send the application by mail to the city secretary. Applications are considered filed once the city secretary has received them. Filers are asked to address applications to: City Secretary’s Office, 1522 Texas Parkway, Missouri City, TX 77489.
