The City of Burlington, Kansas is a progressive county seat town of approximately 2,800 people and it is growing. Burlington is large enough to offer a variety of activities and services, yet small enough to provide opportunities for person-to-person involvement. You can find all the modern improvements and conveniences found in most larger cities.

The National Arbor Day Foundation has named Burlington as a “Tree City USA” again this year. The City of Burlington has now been honored with the status of “Tree City USA” for over a decade. Burlington has also been named as a “Growth Award” recipient. The Burlington Tree Board and community officials believe trees make a world of difference in their community.

Burlington became a member of the Kansas Power Pool when it was established. Mayor Rick Raymer signed a letter of intent on January 21, 2004 to participate in the Kansas Power Pool, then on February 2, 2005 the Governing Body signed a resolution authorizing the City of Burlington to participate in the Kansas Power Pool.
