  • Located at 5th & Main Streets, the Park was donated to the city as part of the Peak Development project on 5th Street Court. The local Lion's Club built a shelter and fire pit in 2014. It is available on a first come, first serve basis for our citizens. The city just asks that you leave it in better condition than when you found it. In 2016 new playground equipment was added to better meet the needs of younger children in our community. The park also has basketball goals on a paved surface as well as numerous picnic tables and grills.

  • Permits are required for open burning of tree debris or leaves. This is through Leavenworth County as the City has adopted the Uniform Fire Code (Ordinance #633). To get a permit you must call: 1-913-682-5724, or you may apply online at  You ask for a burn permit and then you will have to provide your name, contact phone number, address, township (Sherman), and what you are burning. A simple and easy way to avoid a hefty fine from the county!  If you are burning in an enclosed container with a screen or lid you do not have to get a permit. Permits are for open burning only, including bon fires. There is no fee involved, only the time it takes to make the phone call or get online and apply.

  • Neighborhood Watch Program: Several citizens participate in the program that meets on occasion at the city hall.  Notice will be in the monthly newsletter. You are welcome to attend anytime that you can.
