City of New Strawn-City Hall


   Upcoming Events .

City Wide Garage Sales

City-wide garage sales will be held on Saturday, August 2nd in conjunction with Burlington's city-wide sales.  Cost to have your sale placed on the map will be $5.00 this year, but the Burlington Recreation Commission will be advertising quite heavily and will promote the fact that this will be a large event encompassing two communities.  The deadline for signing up will be July 28 and you may do so at City Hall.  This should be a great opportunity to get rid of some of that 'clutter' around the house!  Don't miss out!!

The Coffey County Library New Strawn Branch will be hosting a drive-in movie night on August 9th at the John Redmond Dam Site.  The movie that will be shown is Divergent and will begin at dusk or, approximately, 8:45 p.m.  So, come on out, bring some popcorn, lawn chairs, blankets and whatever else you need to get comfy and enjoy a good old-fashioned drive-in movie experience at the lake!!


The fireworks display held on July 5th was well attended and enjoyed by all!  The display lasted 30 minutes and had some awesome effects!  The City of New Strawn would like to thank those who gave monetary donations and helped with the preparation of the display:
Haas Oil
Jim & Illa Weeks
Bobby Bryant
Matt Anderson
Jerry Melander
New Strawn Fire Dept.
Steve & Kerry Templeton

*No trailers were harmed during the display


The old tennis court at Jones Park is being renovated and will soon be a new horseshoe court.  City employees Ron Parkey and Steven Dwight are working on the project and it is nearing completion.  The tennis court concrete was left in place and 3' x 4' openings were cut to make the pits.  Builder's Choice Concrete furnished the sand for the pits, so a big THANK YOU to them!  Backstops will, of course, be built, foul lines will eventually be painted and seating for participants and spectators will be added as well.  If you love horseshoes, be sure and check it out!!

City Hall and the Post Office will be closed September 1 in observance of Labor Day.  Trash service will be delayed by one day due to the holiday and will be picked up on Saturday, September 6th instead.


Water bills are due on the 10th of each month.  If the 10th falls on a Saturday, Sunday or holiday you have until the close of the next business day in which to pay the charges.  After the 10th, you will be assessed a late charge and a delinquency and termination notice will be mailed to you stating you have ten (10) days from the date of notice to pay the bill or services will be terminated.  Several days before the shut-off date, we will attempt to give you a courtesy call to remind you of the unpaid charges, and, a notice will be hand-delivered to your door alerting you of the impending service termination.  We will do everything within our power to work with you to ensure your water service is not interrupted.
