Office of the Mayor
On behalf of our community, I am pleased to welcome you to our website. Whether you are a citizen of Sedalia needing information, a future visitor to our community or a business looking for a place that is dedicated to your success, our website is here to meet your needs and exceed your expectations.
Excitement is everywhere as we welcome you to Sedalia ! Our friendly town extends a hello and welcome to all – new residents, visitors and a special welcome to new Team Whiteman Air Force Base members.
Sedalia is situated perfectly – both geographically and in the services we provide. Sedalia is the county seat of Pettis County, nestled in the heart of central Missouri at one of the most well-known intersections in the area; Highway 50 and 65 Junction. A short trip in a chosen direction provides varied opportunities; east takes you closer to Jefferson City, west to Kansas City, north to the busy I-70 corridor, or south to the soothing waters of Truman Lake.
You will be amazed at the quality of affordable housing available within Sedalia. From the statuesque Victorian mansions of our 1860’s founding to new construction in virtually every direction, we guarantee your dream home can be found within our city limits. We are fortunate to support a vibrant economy with many industrial and manufacturing businesses located within our Enhanced Enterprise Zone. Sedalia is home to a variety of arts, cultural and recreational opportunities ranging from the Daum Museum of Art at State Fair Community College to the annual Scott Joplin festival.
The City is served by the Sedalia #200 School District. The District consists of eight schools; five elementary, one middle school, one jr. high and one high school. There are also 6 private schools. Citizens may continue their education locally through State Fair Community College; an institution dedicated to providing outstanding vocational and technical education.
We are excited to show you around our always friendly and ever expanding community. This website will direct you to the City resources that will help make an easier transition for you as you become acquainted with our beautiful town. We hope you will enjoy sharing your journey with us as part of our community.
We look forward to welcoming you to Sedalia.
