A Message from the Mayor


                                                 Murray Mayor Bill Wells

Greetings. I am Bill Wells, Mayor of the City of Murray.

Having lived and served as a member of this community for more than 30 years, as the first Director of the Murray Family Resource, former Murray High School Principal, City Councilman of 18 years, and co-founder of "Murray Make A Difference Day", Murray is my home and I welcome you.

The Murray community offers multiple shopping centers, two parks, a wide variety of restaurants, concerts, an historic downtown district, a number of religious organizations, and even a community theater. Additionally, Murray State University, home of the Racers, is located in Murray, providing a number of cultural, educational, and collegiate sporting activities. In support of these services and attractions, the City of Murray maintains a fine set of police, fire, sanitation, water, wastewater, natural gas and street services.

If you live here, work here, or are visiting, we hope to provide you with the best services. We think Murray is a great place to do all three, and we hope you will think so, too!

As Mayor of the nation's friendliest city and one of its greatest advocates, I always welcome the opportunity to hear from my constituency.  Please feel free to call my office at 270-762-0350 ext. 1116 or email me at at any time. I look forward to hearing from you and thank you for visiting our website.
