Rodeo Days Vendor Reservations

Dear Vendors,

The Burlingame Area Chamber of Commerce is now taking reservations for the annual Rodeo Days celebration on Saturday, May 19, 2018. We are pulling out all the stops to bring in a large crowd to help us celebrate on our historic wide brick street. The day will feature many free activities for families including pony rides, a sanctioned peddle pull, chainsaw sculpter, live bands on stage playing Country and Bluegrass, a Car show, a Tractor show, and much more.

Vendor hours are from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM but once you are setup you may start selling. We require you to stay setup until 4:00 pm. (We are not responsible for theft, damage, etc). The parade will be at 3:00 PM this year so you can expect a large crowd in the late afternoon. To save your spaces please return your payment along with the completed entry form to the address below. Spaces will be first paid-first reserved. No space will be saved without payment. NO-SHOWS DAY OF FESTIVAL WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE MAILING LIST AND DEPOSIT WILL NOT BE REFUNDED! The cost is $25.00 for each 10’X 10’ space, PLUS $5 if you need an electric outlet. Exhibitors are responsible for collecting and declaring Kansas State sales tax in their own way.

The DEADLINE for registration is May 7, 2018 or when full. Return your registration by March 4, 2018 and we will advertise you on our flyers. Registrations after that date will be included as updates on our Facebook page. Please note that ELECTRICAL HOOKUPS ARE LIMITED. Rain contingency plans will be available.
If you find you cannot attend we ask that you not re-sell your space. PLEASE CALL IF YOU CANNOT ATTEND. Please call if you have questions.

WE have 80 plus Booth spaces located outside in the center of the 100 block of W. Santa Fe Ave. “Free standing only” canopy covers are allowed as the location is on a brick street. Booth assignments will be given out starting at 7:00 a.m. “Please not Before.” ALL CHECK-IN will be at the Chamber of Commerce booth located next to the stage by Trail Songs Music at 125 W. Santa Fe. Booths must be in place by 9:45 a.m. You must provide your own tables, chairs, and extension cords (PLEASE MAKE SURE EXTENSION CORDS ARE LONG AND HEAVY ENOUGH FOR THE JOB). Booths are configured in pods of four and each booth will be open on two adjacent sides if needed. If you register for two booths, it would give you a 20 foot front and two 10 foot sides. We suggest tables be draped or covered and please move your vehicles to a side street after set up, no parking allowed in the vender area. THANK YOU!

Sincerely,

Burlingame Chamber of Commerce

Dry Conditions

With dry conditions and little chance of measureable moisture in the near future we remind everyone to use extreme caution when conducting any type of outside burning. Please insure that you have sufficient manpower, water, and equipment to control the fire, this is your responsibility. You must monitor your fire until it is completely extinguished. We have had numerous out of control grass fires, burning without a permit and burning on “NO BURN DAYS”.
Anyone burning in Osage County is required to have a burn permit in all unincorporated areas (outside city limits–check with your city for regulations on burning). You may obtain a burn permit at the following locations:

  • City offices at Carbondale, Scranton, Osage City, Overbrook, Melvern, and Burlingame, Quenemo
  • Fire Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7
  • Osage County Clerks, Land Development, Sheriff’s, Extension, Emergency Management, and USDA Service Center Office in Lyndon.

Burn permits are valid for four (4) years from the time of issue. You must contact the Osage County Sheriff Dispatch Center at 785 828 3121 before starting a burn and after your fire is completely extinguished.

More information and electronic burn permit applications can be found on the Osage County Web Site under the Emergency Management tab at http://www.osageco.org or by contacting Osage County Emergency Management at 785 828 3323 or bromine@oscosheriff.org.

Cold Weather

With this cold weather, please allow water to drip through your faucet and pipes at a moderate pace. Expose pipe to warm air by opening cabinet doors, especially for those on an outside wall. Eliminate drafts and cold air into basements and crawl spaces. Protect pipes in unheated areas with insulation or heat tape.

Tips from Waste Management

Hello from your Waste Management Local Team 

We understand weather events are inconvenient and thank you in advance for your understanding. To help our customers better understand our commitment to safety, we have included a brief list of winter weather facts and tips on how you can help us service you better during winter months.

It is important to understand our vehicles are different from yours, weighing more than 38,000 pounds empty, and do not handle the same in snow and icy conditions. Our drivers make everyone’s safety their number one priority; sometimes they can’t service a particular road or alley to protect everyone from potential injury or property damage.

Inclement weather affects all of us. Please take the time to ensure the area around your trash and recycling containers is clear of all snow and ice so we can continue to service you without interruption.

A few key tips to ensure prompt service:

  • Shovel the ground clear of all snow and ice in front and on the sides of your container to allow driver suitable access to service your container.
  • Salt around your containers to aid our drivers in maneuvering around your container safely.
  • If your container resides in an alley, ensure the alley (including all points of entry) is cleared of snow – this is imperative for our drivers to have direct access to your container on your scheduled pick up day.
  • If your container resides in a corral, ensure both the corral doors can swing open to their fullest capacity.

Container and access road completely inaccessible for truck and driver.

Road may be plowed, but the snow pushed onto the corral has iced over and the driver cannot safely open the doors. 

Road appears clear, but the truck cannot safely back up to the container in order to attach to the roll off for service. 

Driver unable to push or pull the wheeled container out from the corral location in order to line up with truck for servicing. 

Our goal is to service your containers on time, every time. However, weather conditions may cause unexpected servicing costs. You can help minimize impacts by ensuring your containers are serviceable throughout the winter season.

We are always available to assist you with any questions or inquires you may have regarding your service.  Please feel free to contact our Customer Service through www.wm.com.

We appreciate your business!
