Watauga is Best

Posted on July 2, 2018 at 7:54 AM by Bradley Fraley

On July 2, 2018, the City of Watauga launched a new resource for citizens designed to centralize information that new residents moving to the City may need, as well as to provide more information to exiting residents.  The resource, titled, "Watauga is Best," serves as a redesigned welcome packet and provides a central repository for information including Utility Providers in the City, where to go for Driver's License Renewals, Passport Renewals, Vehicle Registration, Voter Registration and Schools.  The new resource also includes Medical resources, information on City Churches, City Gyms for staying healthy, places you can volunteer and a listing of free things to do within the City.

We hope you find this information of value.  Please take a moment and explore some of the really exciting things the City of Watauga has to offer.  We think you will see why Watauga is Best!
