Facade Grant Program

The City of Oswego and Oswego Chamber of Commerce have partnered to establish a program to assist business owners with improvements to their storefronts.  In 2017 Oswego kicked off a "Downtown Facade Improvement Program" to coincide with its 150th birthday. The committee met recently to make plans to begin taking applications for 2018. This year any business in the city limits that has a commercial building will be eligible to apply for the grant program which requires a 50/50 match. Applications will be received March 1st through June 1st, 2018 and will be considered on a point system.

Policy Change-Bulk Refuse

At the December Council Meeting a change was made to the city's Bulk Refuse Pickup Policy. Oswego Residential Customers can still receive FREE bulk pick ups on Wednesdays but they do need to CALL in to be put on a list. Customers that have not called in and have a pile of items at the curb for a period of time will be in violation of the city's nuisance ordinance. 


Open Carry Policy

Open Carry At the November Council meeting the Governing Body adopted a policy that does not allow the "open carry" of firearms in any city building. This includes City Hall, the Community Center, Senior Citizen's Building, Golf Course, Water Plant, Public Works buildings, etc.

Currently the city also does not allow "concealed carry". However on Dec. 31st the exemption for municipal buildings will end and concealed carry will no longer be prohibited.



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.
