LOOK FOR THE UTILITY BILL INSERT THAT HAS THIS IMPORTANT NOTICE TO CITIZENS OF OSWEGO!
In order to qualify for some grants, the city must be classified as having a low to moderate income (LMI) percentage of 51%. The last census has us lower than that at 41%, therefore, we would not qualify for grants that require LMI. The State will allow for cities to conduct their own surveys that would override the census results as long as the survey is conducted in a manner approved by the State. State forms are being mailed out to all residents within the city limits. As the information requested is income information and everyone values their privacy, the Southeast Kansas Regional Planning Commission (SEKRPC) in Chanute will be the ones to collect and tabulate the surveys.

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.
