COMMUNITY ANNOUNCEMENT

Effective December 1st, 2019, as ordered by the City of Uniontown in agreement with USD#235, there will be no parking on Clay Street between Third and Fifth Streets. This decision was made in light of a near accident and with the safety of all our walking students in mind. Signage has been ordered and will be posted as soon as it arrives. We would ask for your compliance with this decision despite the inconvenience it may cause.
West Bourbon Elementary students who are being picked up will be required to enter the gym and be picked up along the East side of the building. Adequate supervision is available to ensure that students are picked up in a safe and timely manner. Students who are walking home will be escorted to Clay street.

CITY HALL WILL BE CLOSED FEBRUARY 17 IN OBSERVANCE OF PRESIDENTS' DAY.  

KANSAS DEPARTMENT OF CHILDREN AND FAMILIES WILL BE ACCEPTING LIEAP APPLICATIONS FROM JANUARY 2 THROUGH MARCH 31.  APPLICATIONS MAY BE PICKED UP AT CITY HALL.

Uniontown USD 235 is taking applications for community mentors for their new mentoring program, TeamMates Mentoring.  Will you help make a difference?  Mentors will eat lunch at school with your assigned student once a week.  Get to know them, talk to them, laugh with them, and have fun to help them build a positive, healthy relationship with another adult.  To be a mentor you must be at least 18 years old, pass a background check, provide 3 references and attend a one-time 2 hours training.  Visit temamates.org/become-a-mentor to get started.

As fall approaches, we would like to remind property owner that leaves need to be raked and kept out of the culverts.  It is ok to rake into the ditch and burn or they can be taken to the burn pile.

Annual dog/cat registration period is January 1 through March 31.  See the Features page to view the ordinances regarding dogs/cats.

We would like to remind owners of go-karts and scooters to not drive them on city streets as they can't be seen by drivers of other vehicles.

The Council would like to ask owners of golf carts/atvs to make sure there is an adult in the vehicle when being driven by minors under the age of 16. Thank you for your cooperation.

We have received complaints of coyotes running in town. We have contacted Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks to find out how to get rid of them. They suggested that they are probably young coyotes and are looking for food.  Please do not feed your pets outside and do put your garbage in a covered container.  If they can’t find food they will go elsewhere.  

There has been some inquiry about "pit bull" dogs in town.  The City still has an ordinance banning "pit bull" breeds and mixes.  We would also like to remind citizens that each household is only allowed three dogs and three cats six months of age or older.  We also want to remind you that if you feed/harbor any strays, they are considered yours and need to be vaccinated and registered.  If you have strays, please call City Hall, 620-756-4742, or Animal Control Officer Binford, 620-215-3221, to report and have picked up.

​REMINDER: PLEASE ONLY PUT TREE BRANCHES, BRUSH, LEAVES, GRASS AND YARD WASTE AT THE BURN PILE. ALL OTHER ITEMS ARE FORBIDDEN. WHEN BURNING THE PILE ON APRIL 4, SOMETHING EXPLODED AND SENT GLASS FRAGMENTS FLYING. WE ARE ALL VERY LUCKY THAT OUR MAINTENANCE PERSONNEL WERE NOT INJURED.
