With the announcement of new COVID-19 cases, the City of Edgerton is monitoring the spread of the virus. We are consulting with Johnson County and the Kansas Department of Health and Environment to make decisions to help limit the spread of the disease.

To that end, the City of Edgerton is suspending ALL Parks and Recreation events, including all Spring Break activities and youth and adult classes, and other public events through the end of April.  The annual community Easter Egg Hunt scheduled for April 4 has been canceled.  The City is also postponing our annual Low-Cost Animal Vaccine Clinic.   We will extend our pet licensing deadline until July 1.  The vaccine clinic will be rescheduled, but a date has not been set yet. 

Edgerton Municipal Court will not be held on March 24. All cases will be continued to April.   Individuals will be notified via mail with their new court dates.

Edgerton City Council and Planning Commission will continue to meet this month.  Please watch our website and Facebook and Twitter pages for the most up-to-date information.

We encourage all members of our community to frequently wash your hands, cover your coughs and stay away from anyone who is sick. Anyone who thinks they may have been exposed to coronavirus should self-isolate and contact their doctors office or the KDHE hotline at 1-866-534-3463 or via email at
COVID-19@ks.gov.  Please follow the recommendations from KDHE and the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Links to more information are available here.

For anyone who has business with the City, staff is taking extra precautions to sanitize public spaces and we are asking City employees to stay home if they are sick.  Edgerton offers several options for our utility customers to pay their bills, including by phone or online, so that they can minimize their exposure. Please see our website at edgertonks.org or by calling City Hall at 913.893.6231 for more details.

The City will reevaluate our plans regularly.  The City continues to take the recommendations from state and county health officials regarding public health practices. The health and safety of our residents and community members is of the utmost importance.
