The Sanitation Department update on city trash truck
The Sanitation Dept. truck is currently in repairs. It is not available. However the trash will be picked up. Note the schedule will be delayed due to the regular truck being down. Delays could be as much as the next day. Residents are asked to please leave their trash sitting out until pick-up is complete.
Chamber of Commerce Christmas Parade
The Annual Chamber of Commerce Christmas Parade was a great success. There was a good turn out and the weather cooperated. The theme this year was “A Musical Christmas”. Some city employees participated this year by entering a float and passing out candy. Thank you to all who participated and have a great holiday season!
New Thursday Brush Dump Hours
NOTICE: At the June City Council meeting a change was made to the brush dump hours on Thursdays. The brush dump had been open every Thursday from 11am to 6pm in addition to the third Saturday of the month from 8am to noon. This required a city employee to remain at the site during this time period even when no one was using the dump. It was determined that it would be more cost effective for anyone wanting to use the brush dump on Thursdays to call the City Office and ask someone to meet them there rather than have an employee on site the entire time. The dump will also now only be open until 4pm instead of 6pm. So if you would like to use the brush dump on Thursdays please call the City Office at 795-4433 between 11am and 4 pm. Also please allow some time for the city to arrange to get an employee to the site. The hours on Saturday will remain the same and an attendant will be on duty 8am until noon.
Oswego, the Labette County seat, is located at the intersection of Highways 59/160, on a bluff overlooking the Neosho River Valley. Oswego was fortunate that a group of pioneer ladies had a vision, and purchased acreage along the bluff that is now Historical Riverside Park, our hidden gem. Over 80 acres of beautifully landscaped park includes a large public swimming pool, playground equipment, shelter houses, 10,000 s.f. community center, tennis courts, basketball court, RV park, ball fields, and home of the Labette County Fairgrounds. It is the perfect location for family reunions, weddings, company events and picnics, and other organized events.
