What's going on in the downtown greenspace?
The City recently spent less than $9,000 to tear down two buildings surrounding the downtown greenspace: a vacant home and the former “cop shop” near the library. The total included remediation for asbestos and lead, tear down and clean-up.
The City is currently taking public feedback on design options for the community gathering space. The new building will be approximately 30,000 square feet on two floors with a possible basement. Construction on the $4.1 million project could start as early as later this year or early 2020.
If you’d like to give your opinion, please come to City Hall during regular business hours.
What's wrong with the crosswalk lights outside of Edgerton Elementary?
The City is working to fix problems with the crosswalk lights outside of Edgerton Elementary. Crews replaced components in the lights over the summer, but there is still a malfunction in the system. We’re currently investigating several options, which may include replacement of the batteries and/or the solar power system. City staff will continue to monitor the situation. The safety of the children walking to school is a top priority.
I want to put in a backyard pool. What are the requirements?
The City of Edgerton does require a permit to install a new pool. There are certain rules you will need to follow, including distance from property lines and fencing. Check out edgertonks.org/pools for full details.
How/where do I find the schedule for Yard waste pickups?
Trash is normally picked up on Wednesday in Edgerton. The City contracts with Gardner Disposal for trash, recycling, and yard waste collection services. You can find out more by going to their website.
Residents that would like to sign up for any additional services needed such as additional carts (trash or recycle), smaller size of carts, house-side collection, etc. should contact City Hall (913) 893-6231 during regular business hours. More information is available here.
Will there be a sidewalk built somewhere to the Dollar General so it can be accessed by foot?
Plans are the works for a new asphalt trail to access the Dollar General Store along 56 Highway. The Edgerton City Council has approved plans for Phase 1, which will run from 1st St to Edgerton Elementary School Drive. Phase 2 calls for the trail to eventually run to 8th Street.
Are there any plans to better our current network services by bringing in Broadband or Fiber into the city limits?
The City does not currently offer any telecommunication utilities, like broadband or fiber internet services. We also do not control any private business decisions, but we do support efforts to expand high-speed internet services to rural areas of the state of Kansas.
