Welcome to Goodwater!
Goodwater was chartered in 1894 as a railroad town. Being one of only 2 places the steam engine could turn around, Goodwater became a boom area for business and travel by rail. Today Goodwater is a quiet community with a rich heritage. Our quality of life is unmatched because of our small town atmosphere and family-friendly environment. The hometown atmosphere abounds not only in the city limits but in the surrounding area as well. We have a prosperous business environment, a great school system and have numerous active churches of many denominations. We are home to area's most businesses and largest manufacturing operations.
Our website is an excellent resource to residents and visitors alike. Whether you're here for business, vacation, or have lived here for years, we welcome you and hope you find your stay in Goodwater pleasant one. We encourage you to use the tools and resources on this site to assist you during your stay. As a resident you can use the website to pay your utility bill, view job openings, or learn about the many city departments that serve you each day.
I encourage you to visit the City’s website often or drop by City Hall for the latest information on our community programs, projects, and services. Feel free to contact me as I am always available to visit with residents and welcome their thoughts on improving our city.
I look forward to meeting you as we work together toward an exciting future in our great City. It is a true honor and privilege to represent the residents of Goodwater, and I am thankful for this opportunity to serve as Mayor.
Lonnie Caldwell, Mayor
