Welcome to the official website of the City of Sabetha, KS. Whether you are a resident in our community, a visitor, or a traveler passing through, we invite you to explore this site to see what we have to offer. Sabetha is an outstanding community with friendly citizens and a variety of retail stores, manufacturing companies and services to satisfy your needs.

Sabetha has a great infrastructure. Our water plant was built in 1993, and our sewer plant was built in 2003. A major addition was made to the hospital in 2003. Renovations to the public library in 2009 increased the size significantly. The city hall was replaced in 1998 following a tornado. We have our own power plant, and with our participation in the Kansas Power Pool (made up of a number of Kansas cities), we can provide electricity at very reasonable rates.

Sommerset ParkOur recreation is second to none. A brand new Legion Baseball field was built in 2007 with private funds and has been judged the best in the state. We have four other fields dedicated to youth baseball and youth and adult softball. We have resurfaced tennis courts and a skateboard park. A committee is actively working to replace our municipal swimming pool with a new facility that will include an indoor pool, fitness and meeting rooms. We have several parks for kids with state of the art playground equipment designed for various age groups. The city also maintains two lakes for recreational activities.

Sabetha is a great place to work (employees outnumber residents) with good paying jobs available in manufacturing, transportation and health care, as well as retail. It is an even greater place to live with many attractive neighborhoods and an outstanding school system.

Please come see us - we love visitors.

Voters Approve New Aquatic Center

sketch 4

On January 5th, 2016 residents of the City of Sabetha voted in favor of a new aquatic park, to be located in Leman Sports Complex south of the existing pool on Bluejay Blvd. At a cost estimated be a little over $4 million, the new facility will include a 6 lane competition pool with 1m and 3m diving boards, a family water slide, a lazy river, and a wet bubble, as well as new concessions and bathhouse areas. The water will be heated to allow for extending the swimming season beyond the normal Memorial Day to Labor Day time period.

Future plans for the location include the addition of a spray ground and an open body water slide. The competition pool will include starting platforms for swim meets, while an adjoining part of the facility will provide a shallow water play area.

Majority funding for the facility will be provided by extending a 0.5% sales tax from the existing Library Renovation sales tax that expires on April 1, 2016. As a result, the sales tax within Sabetha will not increase, but will be extended for a period not to exceed 20 years.

Sabetha listed at #10 in Safewise 30 Safest Cities in Kansas

The SafeWise Report Announces the 30 Safest Cities in Kansas

30 Safest Cities in Kansas width= The SafeWise Report released its “30 Safest Cities in Kansas” report this week. To compile this report, SafeWise used the most recent FBI crime data from 2012 to analyze and rank these cities, which all have a minimum population of 2,500 people.
We look at crimes from part 1 of the FBI Unified Crime Report (UCR) reported crime data, which focuses on violent crimes (aggravated assault, forcible rape, murder, and robbery) as well as property crimes (arson, burglary, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft). From there, we calculate the chances of these crimes happening out of a thousand in order to level the playing field for cities of varying populations. From all the cities in Kansas, we narrowed the list down to 30 and assigned rankings according to data provided by the FBI’s UCR report.
"These Kansas cities show what can happen when communities work together to take care of one another," SafeWise security analyst Rebecca Edwards said. "Cooperative efforts between law enforcement and citizens has helped these cities keep violent and property crime to a minimum.”
See the full list, here: http://www.safewise.com/blog/30-safest-cities-Kansas/  

Although Sabetha is one of the smallest cities on our list, with a population of just over 2,550 residents, there is never a shortage of things to do. Sabetha’s new baseball field has been judged as the best in the state and the city maintains two lakes for recreational activities. Pony Creek Lake and Sabetha Lake offer the perfect settings for a day on the boat or a camping adventure, and plenty of premier fishing opportunities.

Sabetha is a great place to work as well. Employees outnumber residents, making this small town a hotbed for employment opportunities, especially in manufacturing, transportation, and healthcare. Sabetha also has its own power plant, which allows the city to provide electricity at very reasonable rates. This close-knit, safe city maintains a neighborly atmosphere while providing all of the perks of a bigger city.

Violent Crimes per 1,000: 1.94
Property Crimes per 1,000: 12.07
