The City will provide updates if and when new information becomes available. For more information on Google Fiber please visit https://fiber.google.com/cities/kansascity/.

2015 Sanitary Sewer Cleaning

LogoTransparentThe 2015 sanitary sewer cleaning and closed-circuit television (CCTV) project is scheduled to begin in early next week.

As a result, some residents will notice Ace Pipe Cleaning crews working in and around sewer manholes located in their yards. The Ace Pipe Cleaning crews will endeavor to restrict their access to side lot lines and sanitary sewer easements.

It is not uncommon to hear some sounds transmitted through your drain plumbing as the cleaning work is being performed. This project is necessary to keep sanitary sewer lines in proper working condition. Thank you for your cooperation.

For more information please contact City Hall

Prescribed Burn Scheduled for Wednesday March 18th

LogoTransparentNotice! This Wednesday (March 18th) Platte Landing Park will be closed for another prescribed burn. Platte Landing Park will be closed until approximately from 9:00 am to 4:00 p.m. If the weather does not cooperate, the burn will be postponed until Friday.

If you are interested in volunteering please call or email Tom Barnard (816-587-2593 or tbarnard@parkvillemo.gov).

The primary reason for the burn is to control the spread of Johnson Grass which is extremely invasive and has taken over 90 plus acres of the park land. The prescribed burn will help the City manage the invasive grass next year as we begin the process of incorporating better suited vegetation for the park area.
