Water Leak on West 2nd Street

There is another leak on West 2nd. Water has been turned off to parts of City to fix the leak.


Low Water Pressure

Due to the Water Tower on Date Street being drained for repairs, you may experience low water pressure..  The repairs should be completed today.


Water Bills Delayed

Water bills are normally mailed out the 25th of the month and  reflect a 4-week usage.  Meters are normally read the 15th of the month but the City was unable to due to the extreme cold this week.  This delay will result in a 5-week usage reading rather than the normal 4-week usage.  Water bills should be in the mail by March 1st.  Please call City Hall if you have any questions.

NOTICE OF VOLUNTARY BOIL ADVISORY
The City of Garden City is issuing a voluntary boil advisory for all customers served by the Garden City Public Water System (ID 1010301). The City officials declared the voluntary boil advisory because of a water line main break on Old 7 Hwy. and N 3rd St. To repair this leak the water pressure was compromised which is the reason for the voluntary boil advisory. The order took effect on February 23, 2021, at approximately 1:00 PM . After repair and flushing of the lines, five samples are required to be sent in to be tested. When results of two days samples are declared satisfactory the town will be notified on social media and notices at various businesses will be placed also.
Everyone 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 boil advisory has been lifted.
The City of Garden City will notify the affected area when the voluntary boil advisory is lifted.

Article in January 14th South Cass Tribune

There are several misstatements in the article, “Garden City makes arrangements with Belton to house prisoners”, which appears on page 2 of the January 14, 2021 edition of The South Cass Tribune.

First, the cost to fix the cameras in the police cars is $1,100 for both cars, not each.

Second, Laurie Oakes is the City Clerk and not an Alderman.

Third, the bill passed for the waiving of fees for use of the Community Building for funerals was a Resolution, not an Ordinance.  Ordinances are laws where resolutions are used for policy.

Most importantly, the Board DID NOT vote to allow the Mayor to have a gas card.   The Board DID vote to allow the Mayor to enter into an agreement for fuel card services with Wex Bank and The National Joint Powers Alliance under Missouri Contract #C16089001.  Only City employees will be authorized to purchase fuel for City owned vehicles and equipment.
