The City of Olsburg
The infrastructure of Olsburg (pop. 211) is solid and well planned. Electrical power is supplied by Westar Energy, the city has water wells that service the entire community. In the event the wells need repair, a secondary system is in place with water coming from Pottawatomie County Rural Water District #2.
Olsburg is a Class 3 City with a Mayor and 5 Member Council.
In 2006, Twin Valley Telephone made an investment in our community and the outlying rural area by installing fiber optic lines that bring telephone, digital cable TV and DSL internet service.
Our city park is a hot spot during the summer months where young and old alike can relax and be refreshed by a dip in our pool. The pool is 3’ to 9’ deep with a slide and kiddie pool. The adjacent park provides plenty of room for running, jumping and climbing.
The centerpiece of the park is a miniature version of an L. K. & W. train. The wooden train was assembled with volunteer time and sits on the site of what once was the Leavenworth, Kansas and Western Railway (L.K.& W.) The L. K. & W. was instrumental in the founding of our community.
Olsburg is home to Pottawatomie County Fire District #6 which provides not only firefighting services but also has a top-ranked First Responder team.
