WELCOME!


Welcome to Access: Guymon, the new City of Guymon newsletter! If you find this information helpful, entertaining, or informative, please pass it along to friends and family. Guymon is your community and this is your newsletter, so let us know how to improve it!
 

Our goal is to provide citizens with information about our community so they don’t miss out on all that Guymon has to offer. This is a great community and a great place to live!


Soon, we are sponsoring our annual Community-Wide Spring Cleanup and we need volunteers. If you want to help make Guymon a better place by helping clean our parks and town, please contact Main Street Guymon.

We are also having a “Name the Elk” contest to incentivize volunteers. Volunteers who pick up trash or bring items on the list to the transfer station or activity center will get to vote on a name for our new bull elk. We will pick the top three names and have Council select the winner at the next regular meeting.

If you haven’t signed up for the newsletter (or would like to invite friends), please click the button below.

Sincerely, David Harris, Program Director

CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS

 

You may have noticed crews around town sealing and filling cracks in streets and roadways in the month of March. The product we are using during this first phase of crack sealing takes care of most cracks 1½ wide or less. Later in May, we will return to repair the streets with larger cracks using a different method.

In other areas of town improvement, gas crews replaced nearly 2,500 feet of gas main that was over 40 years old. The new line will provide better methods of locating, tracing, and service to users in that area.

CODE ENFORCEMENT

 

KEEP GUYMON BEAUTIFUL

The City of Guymon Department of Community Development Services is charged with preventing, detecting, investigating and enforcing violations of local and state laws protecting the public's health, safety, and welfare. Often, the Department receives complaints about "nuisance" properties that evolve and get out of control over time.

Department staff seeks voluntary compliance with local and state laws BEFORE conditions become unsafe over time. If voluntary actions are not forthcoming, staff will have little choice other than to employ more aggressive tactics to ensure a safe and quality lifestyle for Guymon residents

Please take a look at the properties you are responsible for and think of others in the community. Does your property need a little spring-cleaning? Give it some love before it's too late!

FIRE PREVENTION BASICS 101

 

The Guymon Fire Department wants to help you stay safe from fire. Follow Guymon’s fire safety tips to protect your investment and your family.

 

SMOKE ALARMS

Have working smoke alarms on every level, including the basement. Put smoke alarms inside each bedroom and outside all sleeping areas. Push the test button until the alarm sounds. Do this each month. Interconnected smoke alarms provide the best protection.
 

ESCAPE PLANS

Half of home fire deaths happen late at night. Every second counts, so make an escape plan. Know two ways out of each room. Plan your escape around the abilities of children and older adults.
 

PREVENT ELECTRICAL FIRES

Electrical problems are a leading cause of home fires. Plug major appliances like refrigerators and stoves directly into the wall outlet. Only plug one heat-producing appliance into an outlet at a time. This includes coffee makers, space heaters and microwaves. If you need additional outlets, have them installed by an electrician.

Extension cords are for temporary use only. Keep all cords out of foot traffic, but don’t run them under carpets or rugs. Throw away cracked, frayed or damaged electrical cords before you move.

For additional home fire safety information or free smoke alarm installation call us at 580-338-5536.  Remember, we are here to serve all citizens in any way that we can.
