Many moons ago, wise men and women proclaimed that Bryan citizens live "The Good Life, Texas Style." And that's never been more true than it is right now. Our City is growing, our citizens are thriving, and yes, "Winter is Coming".
There's a lot of work that goes into making this City great for its noble citizens. Ride with us as we journey through the realm in our State of the City report for fiscal year 2017. Revel with us in the glory of our City's victories. Be honored with us as we take pride in our accomplishments. Stand side-by-side with us as we battle the forces of darkness and combat everlasting winter. (Okay, so that might be a little much, but you get the point.)
The City of Bryan is an amazing place to live. Join us as we show you what we're doing to help keep it that way.
