The City of Garden City has issued a voluntary boil water order for the Garden City Public Water System (ID 1010301). The system is located in Cass County. City officials declared the order because of a water main break located at the North End of Spruce St, beginning at West 1st, North on Spruce. The order will take effect 6-11-19 9:30 a.m. and will remain in effect until water samples indicate that turbidity levels are below 0.5 NTU’s and no bacteria indicated. Public water system personnel will continue to sample the water until they determine that it is safe to drink.


Anyone served by the affected area within the public water system should observe the following precautions:


  • Boil water vigorously for three minutes prior to use for cooking or drinking.

  • Disinfect food contact surfaces (dishes) by immersing them for at least one minute in clean tap water that contains one teaspoon of unscented household bleach per gallon of water.

  • Dispose of ice cubes and remake with water that has been boiled.

  • Continue boiling all water that is to be used for cooking or drinking until the order has been lifted.

The City of Garden City will notify the affected area when the boil order is lifted.

Suspended 2019 Pool Season


The Board of Alderman voted unanimously at the April 2, 2019 Board Meeting to suspend the opening of the pool for the 2019 season.

The pool is in need of repairs & painting and due to the cost and time it will take to make the repairs, the pool will not open.

Alderman Shannon Leslie has volunteered his time to help make the needed repairs & painting and welcomes help from others that would like to volunteer.

If you are interested in volunteering your time to assist in the repairs & painting, please contact Alderman Leslie at 816-773-6700.
