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 current fitness center with a new facility that will include a gymnasium, 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.

Run for the Fallen
Tuesday, June 5th, 2018

Run for the Fallen is one of the most comprehensive Fallen Military Tributes ever compiled. It blazes a tribute trail across our nation spanning 6,000 miles in over 19 States during a 5 month period. Run for the Fallen is individually recognizing nearly 20,000 fallen service members since the USS Cole. The tribute began on April 7, 2018 in Fort Irwin, CA and will complete its journey on August 5, 2018 in Arlington National Cemetary. The tribute stopped in Sabetha on June 5th with a tribute ceremony at Sabetha Cemetary, and a closing ceremony at Sabetha Library Park.

Local runners for this event included Rick Smith, Shannon Stapleton, Caleb Clock, Kurt Mueller, Melissa Detweiler, Ashley Stalder, Brianna Gruber and Steve Plattner. (click on pictures below to enlarge)

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:  

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
