1997-2017: Celebrating 20 Years


In November 1996, citizens voted in favor of Covington becoming its own city. On August 31, 1997, Covington officially incorporated. This year, 2017, marks our 20th year of cityhood.

There is no arguing that Covington has come a long way and has grown considerably in the past 20 years. The efforts of city council members, city staff, community volunteers, residents, and businesses have contributed to the city’s successes.

We’ve spent 20 years growing to meet the needs of our community and successfully providing municipal services for our residents.

A celebration to commemorate Covington’s first 20 years as a city is planned to take place on Friday, Aug. 25 from 6-8 p.m.
