City of Cushing - City Government
Government Broadway District
Known as the “Pipeline Capital of the World” because of its long history and present service as one of the largest oil storage locations in North America. Cushing’s location at the crossroads of Highways 33 and 18 means it serves a large population and attracts potential customers from across the region.
Cushing residents enjoy amenities common only to much larger communities, such as a full-service regional hospital and a major healthcare center. The city-owned Cushing Aquatic Center and waterpark provides a full day’s entertainment in the summer months for a fraction of the cost of commercial water attractions. Excellent public education, serving just over 1,800 students district-wide, is another benefit residents say drew them to Cushing. Community theatre, bowling, golf, cinema and numerous restaurants offer residents entertainment on demand close to home.
The City of Cushing is governed by a five member citizen-elected city commission board who sets public policy for the city. Day to day activities and administration are overseen by a professional city manager and city administration staff working at the direction of the commission. The city strives to be friendly, professional, progressive and efficient.
