Welcome to the
City of
Garnett, Kansas  


Food Distribution - Monday, November 23

DID YOU KNOW:  City employees help with the Emergency Food Assistance Program Distribution on a monthly basis. Due to the lack of volunteers, city departments spare employees to accommodate the need to get food to those who desperately need it.

The next food distribution will be held on Monday, November 23rd, beginning at 4:00 p.m.  The location is the Quonset Hut at the Anderson County Fairgrounds located in Garnett's North Lake Park.

Let us help take the chore out of your gift giving this holiday season. Purchase City of Garnett gift certificates, good for redemption at the Garnett Recreation Center programs or membership. There are also certificates available for camping at any of Garnett's city parks and swimming at the municipal pool.

JUST LIKE CASH... The Garnett Area Chamber of Commerce has "Chamber Bucks". These "bucks" can be redeemed at GACC member businesses.

For more information about gift certificates or Chamber Bucks, stop by Garnett City Hall, 131 W. 5th during regular business hours.  The GACC Office is located inside the city hall building.

Recycling Trailer - 2nd Tuesday in Garnett
Garnett area citizens are invited to participate in the Anderson County Recycling Program. A recycling trailer is staged in the Country Mart parking lot on the second Tuesday of each month, courtesy of the Anderson County Landfill/Recycling Center. Items to be dropped into the designated bins:
- #1-#7 plastic bottles, preferably washed out;
- Glass bottles and glass containers, preferably washed out;
- Cardboard boxes, must be flattened;
- Cans, must be crushed. No plastic bags or household trash.

Make it a habit to take your recyclables to this drop off point the second Tuesday of each month when visiting our highway business district!

THE CITY OF GARNETT encourages you to use this program to teach your children the value of recycling. Recycling can reduce waste removal expenses to the City of Garnett and help keep costs down for our refuse customers.  Whenever possible, please recycle.
Crystal Lake has been reopened to the public and the warning has been cancelled. However, this lake remains in a "watch" and contact with water is discouraged (click on image left for more information).



The City of Garnett has closed the surface water of Crystal Lake (a/k/a "South Lake") as of Wednesday afternoon, October 7, 2015, after water plant personnel discovered a possible outbreak of blue-green algae..   The lake will remain closed to the public until further notice as a safety precaution.

Cyanobacteria, also known as blue-green algae, can produce toxins in recreational waters and has been implicated to human and animal illness in Kansas.  KDHE officials have been notified.
