LMI Surveys

Thank you to everyone who has turned in their LMI surveys. If you haven't turned in the survey that was included in the October utility bills please do so as soon as possible. This survey will help the city become eligible for future grants. If you no longer have the survey you may call 795-4433 or come to the City Office to get a replacement survey and envelope. The city has begun calling residents who have not responded and will also go door-to-door if necessary to reach residents until the required percentage is reached. So please contact the city as soon as possible if you need a replacement survey.

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.
