On behalf of the dedicated men and women at the City of Pharr, I want to welcome you to our incredible city. Our committed leaders, supportive staff and progressive ideas are leading the city toward a successful and prosperous future. We are dedicated to providing our citizens with the change they need and deserve.

As your City Manager, I am proud to say our team of employees are constantly working to meet the needs of the community through services, activities and events. The residents of Pharr should notice the change in the city’s culture where Professionalism, Respect, Integrity, Discipline, and Ethics (PRIDE) are expected out of every one of our employees. The residents should also notice the change in priorities that this past year has brought as it relates to our infrastructure and our responsible fiscal management of city resources.

~ Juan Guerra, City Manager~

This year, for the first time in a very long while, we gave back to the community by giving the biggest tax rate reduction in over 20 years and by also returning over $3.5 million of excess utility funds back to the rate payers, this is the first time any government in the region has done that for its utility rate payers. The residents should definitely notice the priorities for the new fiscal year which focus on improving the quality of life. We acknowledge that over the past years the City has not provided adequate resources to our streets and parks systems, this is now changing! The quality of life for our residents and families will continue to be improved through better streets, improved park infrastructure, and several new parks.

It is the mission of the City of Pharr to provide effective and fiscally responsible municipal services in a manner, which promotes a higher standard of living for the community, a better quality of life that every Pharr resident deserves.

Providing a high quality of life for our Pharr families and neighborhoods is at the core of our mission to improving this city. We want our citizens to move forward with us, to continue to have pride and confidence in our city. With the new fiscal year’s priorities, we can allow for the current and next generation of residents to benefit from the hard work of our employees and the leadership of our Mayor Dr. Ambrosio Hernandez and our City Commissioners.
