Coronavirus

Parks

In an abundance of caution, we are closing the playground equipment at all six City parks. All parks remain open for other activities. This closure only affects playgrounds, not the entire park.

Large Item Day

Waste Management has informed us they will no longer conduct large item pickups until further notice. Regular trash service, recycling and yard waste are not impacted. If you have questions, please call us at (913) 592-3664.
