Welcome to the City of Rich Hill

Town Hall meeting, City Wide clean up and nuisance ordinance enforcement

The City Mayor and council have been working towards properly enforcing the City’s nuisance ordinances.  These steps have involved bringing ordinances up to date with new state statues, breaking the ordinances apart so they are understood easier, informing the public of what is in the ordinance so compliance can be met and helping the public meet compliance without creating any unnecessary financial burden toward a citizen.  Council has not changed the criteria of what a nuisance is, changes have only been made to meet state statues for penalties and enforcement.  The following are the steps the city and staff is taking to inform and help the citizens before enforcement commence.

On February 27, 2017 at 7 pm at the Kern’s Center, there will be a town hall meeting where Richard Brockman will address the public with a presentation and answer questions regarding the nuisance ordinance and enforcement.

On March 6-10, 2017, there will be a city wide clean up.  If assistance is needed please drop a letter off at city hall with your name, address and a phone number.  State why and what kind of assistance is needed in the letter.  This information will be passed on to volunteer organizations; if assistance is available the volunteer organizations will be in contact.  This is not an assistance guarantee, nor is the city providing the assistance.

March 13, 2017 nuisance violations will begin being issued.
