***Effective April 2nd the City of Oswego will not be picking up any bulk items until April 22nd***

If any Oswego residents have bulk items that would qualify for a Wednesday bulk pick up, during this time you may call the City Office at 620-795-4433 and make an appointment to take your items to the C & D dump located on Chisolm Lane.   There will be no charge to haul bulk items to the dump during this time.



Parks & Playground Equipment

The city has determined for the safety of the citizens the playground equipment in all city parks has been roped off and is NOT to be used as it has not been cleaned or sanitized during the COVID 19 pandemic. We are sorry for any inconvenience, but the safety for our citizens is our priority. 
At this time the playground equipment has not been roped off but parents must use an abundance of caution if they allow their children to play on them as the National Health Institute states that COVID 19 stays on plastic and metal surfaces for up to 2-3 days.  CDC guidelines need to be adhered to when going to the park.  Social distancing and hand sanitizing are essential to the health of our families and neighbors during this pandemic.  We ask that you do not go to the parks if you are sick.  Whether the parks stay open depends upon the people using it and the statistics for our area and are subject to change at any moment.  Be safe and enjoy the great outdoors!

Notice From Oswego Police Department

As a proactive measure against the spread of the COVID-19, the coronavirus, the Oswego Police Department will be limiting some public services. Department officials are keeping up to date with current information about our area and will be making adjustments as needed.

We are encouraging those who need to file a report should do so by calling 620-795-2565. Officers will continue their normal patrol duties, but whenever possible, they will be responding to non-emergency reports via phone calls. This does not apply to emergency calls, where crime is in progress, violent in nature, or when suspects may still be on scene.


Oswego City Office, Senior Citizen's Center & Community Center Closed to Public

In an abundance of public caution, the City of Oswego is taking proactive steps to combat the spread of the coronavirus locally so the city can continue to provide essential services. Effective 3-19-20, City Hall, 703 5th St. will be closed to the public until further notice. Please contact the city by phone with questions at 620-795-4433. Utility and court payments can be made either by mail or the drop box by the front door of City Hall. Payments can also be made online or over the phone using a credit card or you can set up an autodraft from your checking account. Please see the city’s website for an abundance of information and forms – We will also be releasing updated information on our Facebook page.

In accordance with the CDC guidelines, the City of Oswego is also closing the Oswego Community Center, 203 North St., to the public for the next three weeks. These closures are to protect the most vulnerable members of our community. We are sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause and hope these closures are very temporary.

The Oswego Senior Citizen's Center, 723 Commercial will also be closed until further notice. 

The City Council meetings will proceed as planned, but all non-essential City board meetings likely will be cancelled or rescheduled. Further information will be released through the newspaper, website and Facebook as the pandemic situation changes.

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.
