The City of Lufkin operates under the Council-Manager form of government, with all legislative and policy-making responsibilities vested in the City Council and all administrative responsibilities vested in the City Manager. It is the citizens, working through the City Council; however, who set our priorities and help us identify issues for long-term planning that will ensure our quality of life is maintained.

This web site is provided to give you a quick look at the City of Lufkin and some of the programs, services, financial statistics, and progress highlights recently completed.

The City continues to implement advanced technologies and lead the municipal arena in cost saving implementations. Projects completed this past year include a new VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) telephone system - the first for any City in East Texas, if not the State of Texas, that will save the Citizens of Lufkin thousands of dollars over the next decade.  The City Manager received the Center For Digital Government's Visionary Award for this project.

We have improved online City services with the introduction of online payments for utility bills, radio frequency reading of water meters, and mobile data services for the Police Department. The City web
site continues to add new services and timely information and has been recognized with numerous awards and recognition as a model site for municipalities.

Other accomplishments include numerous street and drainage improvement projects, the completion of a new Comprehensive Plan, major maintenance and repairs at the Civic Center and area parks,
as well as the continued progress in our five-year capital improvements plan.

We again received financial recognition from the GFOA (Government Finance Officers Association) for both excellence in our preparation of the operations budget through the receipt of the Distinguished Budget Award for the fifth consecutive year and the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for our annual report.

We appreciate the cooperation of our citizens who partner with the City through organizations like the Neighborhood Associations, Boards and Commissions, volunteers, Angelina Beautiful/Clean, the Angelina Chamber of Commerce, and the Lufkin/Angelina County Economic Development Partnership. Working together as a team, we can achieve so much more for our community. Thank you for your support of local government.
