City Manager

“On behalf of the City of Wolfforth, I hope you’re finding the information you need on our newly developed website.  Wolfforth is a town making a remarkable transition from what once was a small community 10 miles outside of Lubbock to a rapidly growing community of over 7000 people and counting that is now literally connected to Lubbock geographically.  We are growing in every way, from the hundreds of residential lots under construction and development, to the recreation of our website you’re currently enjoying.  I’m proud to be able to work with the Wolfforth Mayor and City Council, the dedicated staff of Wolfforth, and you, the citizens of Wolfforth. 

You are our eyes and ears.  Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us and tell us what we’re doing well and what we need to do better.  Within this website we’ve provided several ways for you to do so, and we hope you’ll utilize the opportunity.  We can’t fix something unless we know it’s broken, so let us work for you.  I know you’ll find our Mayor and Council, and our staff ready to listen and respond”.
