• Service Providers and Contractors working within the City.
All service providers, contractors, insurance agents, and businesses must register with the city of Granite Shoals. Each registered entity will receive a registration card that must be visible from the dash of the company vehicle. There is no charge for the registration.
• Volunteer and Nonprofit Groups
All volunteer groups and helpers must check in with Granite Shoals City Hall before you assist residents. There is no charge for checking in — we just want to know who is in town to help. If you are bringing supplies or food, please contact Pastor Randy Taylor at (512) 755-5217.
• Granite Shoals Water System: Our water is safe to drink and to use. We are NOT under a boil water notice.
