City Hall to Close to Public Due to Coronavirus-19 Effective March 16, 2020


Due to concerns over the spread of Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19), the City of Independence will be closing City Hall to non-City employees until further notice.  During this time, staff will be working and available by phone or email.

Utility bill payments may be made over the phone at 1-844-215-7377, online at www.IndependenceKs.gov, or dropped off at our two drop box locations: 811 W Laurel Street, and 120 N. 6th Street.

If you need to reach the police department, we request that you call 620-332-1700. If you require face-to-face contact and you are not exhibiting any symptoms of illness, please go to the West door of Temporary City Hall, 811 West Laurel St. and pick up the phone to contact a dispatcher. As always, if you have an emergency, call 911.

If you need to reach other departments, please call 620-332-2500 and follow the prompts.  For a complete list of direct department phone numbers or email addresses please visit our website.

In addition, events scheduled at City facilities that are anticipated to have 50 or more persons in attendance or would include several citizens in a high-risk group will be canceled until further notice.  Prepayments and deposits for reservations will be refunded within thirty days of cancelation.   

Our priority is the safety of our employees and citizens.  We appreciate your patience and understanding, and we apologize for any inconvenience.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to us.
