The City of Atchison is a municipal corporation led by a CEO (the City Manager), helmed by a democratically chosen Board of Directors (the City Commission), and staffed by about 110 professionals that are proud to call the people of Atchison their family, friends, and neighbors.

Our mission is to apply business-like principles to the values of public services to get a great community built on quality neighborhoods and engaged individuals. The “products” made by our “company” include water, wastewater service, residential trash collection, public safety services of police and fire protection, streets, parks, support for tourism amenities, community planning and enforcement of property standards, and the management services that make all of this happen.

We are committed to providing our customers with accessible, professional local government services.  We stand at the ready.  Let us know how we can help.
