Kara Banks City News

In light of the recent surge in COVID-19 cases in Johnson County and the United States, effective January 11th Mayor Roberts has declared a state of local disaster emergency as prescribed by Kansas Statute. With this declaration the City of Edgerton is postponing city-sponsored recreation programs, community events and rentals of Community Hall in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19.

“Keeping our community safe is our top priority,” states Mayor Donald Roberts. “We are hopeful that by temporarily postponing city-sponsored community events and recreation programming we can quickly slow the recent surge of COVID-19.”

The Public Safety Town Hall originally scheduled for January 20th will be rescheduled. No new date has been set yet.

Parks and Recreation programming, including Superhero Wake-Up, Senior Dominoes, Women’s Night Out: Bunco, and the Totally Rad 80s Prom Murder Mystery, will be rescheduled at a date TBD.

The Edgerton Senior Committee has also decided to cancel the January Senior Lunch and BINGO.
