The City of Katy is the hub of three counties - Harris, Waller and Fort Bend - and is located 30 miles west of Houston. The City was founded on rice farming in the late 1800s and was formally incorporated in 1945.
The City provides the highest quality of life for its residents. Beautiful neighborhoods, master-planned communities and abundant green space for parks and recreation. Katy ISD ranks among the top school districts in the country, offering students excellent education. Many large, mid-size and small businesses call Katy home, and the City of Katy is proactive in economic development to create a business-friendly environment.
Katy offers the best of both worlds - the charm of a small town, but all the conveniences of a large city. It is rich in traditions and heritage and boasts a community pride that is unmatched. Whether you're a young professional, growing family, retired senior or business owner, Katy is your hometown.

ATTENTION RESIDENT: The City of Katy Water Department will be flushing hydrants beginning Wednesday, December 4. The hydrant flushing will take place between 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. The flushing may cause low water pressure as well as some discoloration of water, but this does not represent a health hazard.
If you experience discolored water, run the cold water in all your faucets for approximately 5-10 minutes or open the outside faucet closest to your water meter for several minutes before using the water. However, customers are cautioned to determine if the water is clear before washing clothes (or any other processing) as staining may occur.

We appreciate all of our resident's support and are grateful for the Katy community. Happy Thanksgiving from the City of Katy!
