Welcome to the City of Tioga!
Located in the southwest corner of Grayson County, Tioga is in the heart of “horse country” and provides our citizens with the “best of both worlds”… they are close enough to enjoy all the amenities of the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex (only 46 miles south of us) while still enjoying the rural charm and values of a small town. Come see what makes the City of Tioga so special! If you need help, we are ready to assist you.

JUST A REMINDER……
All items dropped off at the recycling location must be placed in blue bags which are available at City Hall. Loose items will not be recycled. All loose items will be collected and discarded in the regular trash dumpsters. Dumping loose items, hazardous materials, and regular trash at the recycling location is considered illegal dumping and is against the law.
