The 2nd annual Pool Party was another big hit!! We had over 200 in attendance! Friends of the Library and Oswego Fire Department ap-preciated everyone that came out and supported them with their donations! Thank you again to the Rec Commission and Oswego Chamber for the DJ. Also to the local business-es that donated for the prizes and the meal. That makes this event even more outstanding!

At the March Council Meeting the Council adopted a new policy for the Wednes-day bulk pick-up. This does not affect your regular trash pick up. Customers may set out bulk trash items by the curb that they want to dispose of. They will need to call into the city office to get their name on the list for this service. This service is available to all Oswego Residential Refuse Custom-ers. Items that are not in-cluded in this service are: rocks, car parts, ashes, hazardous materials, bricks, cement construction and demolition materials, brush, leaves and tires. Any appli-ance that contains Freon must have proof that the Freon has been removed by an authorized agent. There is no fee for this service. If a customer has not called in and yet a pile of items has been sitting by the curb for 2 weeks, the items will be presumed as trash and will be picked up.
If you are unsure as to whether the materials can be picked up, please call the City Office to check first 620-795-4433. This is a service that the City of Oswego provides as a con-venience for our citizens and an incentive to keep the town cleaned up. As with all services, misuse will jeopardize its existence.
The complete policy is available to view on the city’s website www.oswegokansas.com or at the City Office. Read the newsletter here.
The City of Oswego is participating in a photo contest sponsored by the League of Kansas Municipalities. It is called the Kansas Hometown Showdown! Here is how it works!
Cities all over the state of Kansas submit a photo and then they are paired up with another city. The photos will be posted on the Leagues Face Book page. Whichever photo gets the most “likes” goes to the next round. The winning photo will be on the cover of the Kansas Government Journal. So let’s show our Oswego Pride and get out the votes. Just be sure that you “vote” by liking the photo on the Leagues Face Book page, not the City of Oswego’s Face Book page. Each round lasts one week and the first round begins Feb. 23rd. We will keep everyone posted on the city’s Face Book page about our progress. When you see the city’s post please be sure to share it! Read the newsletter here.
