Governing Body

The City Commission meets twice each month, on the first and third Mondays, at 7:00 PM CST. The meetings are open to the public and held in the Commission Room of City Hall at 220 East First in El Dorado. For those who cannot attend, the meetings are shown LIVE on cable channel 7, as well as videotaped and rebroadcast at 10:30 AM and 7:30 PM on Tuesday and Wednesday following the meeting.

Our Water

The City of El Dorado is unique in that it is the only city in the State of Kansas to contract directly with the Corps of Engineers for its raw water supply, El Dorado Reservoir. The City holds sole ownership of all water storage.   This water resource gives the City a virtually unlimited quantity of water to support the needs of the Community.  El Dorado's water has been voted "The Best Tasting Water in Kansas".
