Welcome to the City of Katy's new website! We are in live beta testing and appreciate your patience.
Form of Government
The City of Katy is a Home Rule city. There are two major categories of local government in the State of Texas: General Law cities and Home Rule cities. The major distinction between the two is that a General Law city can ONLY do what the legislature, through law, allows them to do. A Home Rule city, on the other hand, can pass any regulations or laws it deems necessary unless the state law prohibits it. In order for a city to be Home Rule, the population has to reach 5,000 and there has to be an election ratifying a city charter.
The City Charter is effectively the constitution of the City. Cities typically form a charter committee to help draft the proposed Charter. The proposed Charter then must be approved by the City Council to be presented to the eligible voters of the city for approval and ratification at an election. The City of Katy’s Home Rule Charter was crafted by a charter committee and adopted in 1981. A copy of the Charter can be found within the City’s

ATTENTION RESIDENTS: Smoke Testing Notification - The City of Katy will be conducting a smoke testing survey, which is part of our Sanitary Sewer maintenance program. This allows us to detect and repair any infiltrations in the system. Testing is scheduled to happen (weather permitting) on Wednesday August 21 and Thursday, August 22 between the hours of 8 AM to 4 PM.
Testing on Wednesday, August 21 will be on the following streets: Auburn, Baylor, Clemson and Town Park Blvd (from Clemson to Katy Hockley Cut Off)
Testing on Thursday, August 22 will be on the following streets: Yale, Dartmouth, Princeton, Exeter, Fordham, Georgetown and Town Park Blvd. (from Georgetown East to Clemson.)
Please make arrangements or leave access to your back yard by leaving a gate unlocked or open and put up all animals. Public Works employees will need to determine if smoke comes up from the sanitary main in these areas. The smoke testing material is biodegradable and is not harmful to humans or pets. In the event you should experience any smoke inside your home; through any plumbing fixtures during this testing, you will need to contact a plumber to investigate. Should the smoke enter into your home, this would mean that sewer gas may be entering your premises where the smoke comes in.
Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact the City of Katy Public Works Department at 281-391-4820 between the hours of 7 AM to 4 PM Monday through Friday.
Thank you for your cooperation and we are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
