New Year, New Website

The City of Osawatomie website is still under construction this week, but important pages are starting to take shape. Visitors to www.osawatomieks.org will find a cleaner menu, easier navigation, and more up-to-date information on all things Osawatomie -- including new contact forms, feedback platforms, and expanded information on our many varied recreation spots and development opportunities.

City staff is hard at work to bring our content up to 2021 standards, and we greatly appreciate your continued patience.
While we work on the new website, certain functions may be unavailable. Please call us at 913-755-2146 and we'd be glad to help you access the information you need.

For those of you who have subscribed to our website content, like our events notifications or this newsletter, you will soon receive a "Confirmation of Subscription" notice from our new subscription center. If you'd like to continue receiving City of Osawatomie updates in your inbox, simply confirm the subscription. If you've decided to clean up your inbox and no longer wish to receive our communications, you can reject the confirmation or let it expire.

Temporary City Council Agenda Center

While our website is under construction, full functionality of our "Agenda Center" for the City Council is temporarily unavailable. However, all 2020 Agendas, Minutes, Resolutions, and Ordinances can be found here and the upcoming January 14th Agenda will be available for download directly here.

We are working to replicate the previous Agenda Center in full and hope to have previous years available soon.

Trash Bag

Waste Management Reminders for 2021

- As of January 1, 2021, ALL residential trash must be placed in the newly provided 95-gallon Waste Management cart. Waste Management will not pick-up loose items or unstickered bags, or empty non-approved waste containers.
- For residential properties that require a supplemental waste container, Waste Management is able to rent a second 95-gallon cart for an additional $10 per month, contracted through WM directly. Private/personal cans will no longer be permitted for trash.
- As in previous years, residents are able to purchase overage stickers from the City of Osawatomie Utilities Department. These stickers must be placed in clear view on the additional bags in order for them to be picked up. Overage stickers are not applicable to bulky items, and bulky items should be reserved for the designated Bulky Item Pick-Up as indicated on the calendar (see reverse).
- Any existing personal trash containers (non-Waste Management) may be used for recycling so long as they are clearly labeled as “RECYCLING.” There is no limit to the amount of recycling residents are able to set out and overage stickers are not required for excess recycling containers.

For more on trash service, please visit us online or call our Utilities Department.
