June 2021 Food Truck Calendar

City Staff has set the first calendar for food trucks coming during the month of June (2021) to gorgeous downtown Osawatomie. Each truck will operate from 11:00am to 7:00pm, unless otherwise noted.

If you operate a mobile food or beverage business and you’d like to make an appearance on an upcoming calendar, please get in contact with a member of the City Clerk’s office! We’d love to feature you!

Trucks may alter their schedule due to weather or supply, and advanced notice may not be available. Additions and corrections to this calendar may be made at any time, for any reason. This calendar should not be construed as final or absolute.

Thank you for your continued support of this wonderful program!

Summer Safety Tips #2

It’s Building Safety Month and today’s tips are all about FIRE SAFETY! Summer is fireworks season, campfires, lanterns, tiki torches, and all sorts of other light-up-the-night activities. Visit Building Safety Month to learn more about how to keep you and your loved ones safe during summer fun.

Building Safety Month is an international campaign that takes place in May to raise awareness about building safety. This campaign reinforces the need for the adoption of modern, regularly-updated building codes, and helps individuals, families and businesses understand what it takes to create safe and sustainable structures.

The International Code Council, its 64,000 members, and a diverse partnership of professionals from the building construction, design and safety communities come together with corporations, government agencies, professional associations and nonprofits to promote building safety through proclamations, informational events, legislative briefings and more. We come together to support Building Safety Month because we understand the need for safe and sustainable structures where we live, work and play.

All communities need building codes to protect their citizens from disasters like fires, weather-related events and structural collapse. Building codes are society’s best way of protecting homes, offices, schools, manufacturing facilities, stores and entertainment venues. Code officials work day in and day out to keep the public safe.

City Council Meeting Location Change

The regularly scheduled meeting of Osawatomie City Council has been moved to the City Auditorium for May 27th, 2021. Due to inclement weather and heavy morning rain, the Council will no longer be meeting at the Mile Zero Trailhead for the Flint Hills Trail to celebrate the achievements of the Trail Task Force.

Task Force members will instead be recognized during the meeting inside the Auditorium, and will share a celebratory meal with members of the Governing Body ahead of the regular Council meeting.

Mayor Mark Govea will call the regular meeting to order at 6:30pm.
