Welcome to the official website of the City of Archer City.  Archer City is 25 miles southwest of Wichita Falls, lies at the junction of State Highway 79 and State Highway 25, and is the county seat of Archer County.  We are a quaint Texas town that enjoys our “small town” feel and friendliness but also offers some finer aspects of city life. 

Many know of Archer City because of our famous native son, Pulitzer Prize winning author, Larry McMurtry.  Movies based on his novels, The Last Picture Show and Texasville, were filmed on the streets of Archer City. 

Ranching and oil are two major industries in our area.  Archer County is known as the “Short Grass Ranching Capital” of the nation because our grass, which is short, has tremendous strength and nutritious qualities. We are also known for excellent hunting. Our area is home to deer, dove, quail, turkey, and wild hogs.

Ambulance Requests

Due to a recent influx of concerns regarding the Corona virus and Flu viruses, it is a perfect time to remind our citizens of the appropriate reasons to call 911 for ambulance transport.

Please do not call 911 for flu like symptoms, i.e., fever cough, body aches.
If you are experiencing flu like symptoms, please call your primary care physician to discuss treatment options. Physicians can give the best recommendations of care without an Emergency Room visit.
Paramedics and EMT’s must transport patients to the ER. This will expose our EMS personnel, ER staff, and other patients to potentially communicable viruses. Tying up an ambulance for non-emergency calls will likely delay our ability to respond to a life-threatening emergency.
We are a rural EMS provider with limited resources and a fixed number of personnel and ambulances.
If you are having a life-threatening emergency, CALL 911.

Utility Billing Changes Coming!
Effective February 1, 2022, the City of Archer City will be rolling out changes to our red tag and disconnect policies.  

THE CITY OF ARCHER CITY WILL NO LONGER DISTRIBUTE RED TAGS. THE PINK LATE CARDS WILL SERVE AS THE DISCONNECT NOTICE.

Prior policy allowed for past due accounts to be paid no later than the 15th of the following month or the account was subject to disconnection. Starting February 1st, 2022, the City will begin processing disconnects on the 1st of the month for accounts not paid by the end of the previous month. We will also no longer provide payment extensions for late payments.
Going forward, if the City terminates service for non-payment, we will immediately final the account and apply the deposit. What that means is that in order to reconnect, the City will require the entire balance owed on the account, paperwork for new service, and a new deposit, which will increase to $300.00 based on past payment history. Failure to reconnect to City services in a timely manner may result in citations being issued. 
We encourage everyone who is not current at this time to prepare for the upcoming changes before they take effect.
