Message from the Mayor

Welcome to our city. 
Canton, a progressive community of 800 people is situated along U.S. Highway 56 in South Central Kansas.  Our residents enjoy the peace and tranquility of rural life, yet are able to access the amenities offered by the neaby cities of McPherson, Wichita, Salina and Hutchinson.  I hope after you have been here for a while you, too, will know what a great city we live in.
We are a full service city with twenty-four/seven police protection, a volunteer fire department and EMT certified ambulance crews.
The Senior Citizens Center provides daily activities and the Carnegie Library strives to meet the needs of the community.
Our downtown business community hosts outstanding merchants that allow the city to remain self-sufficient.  Be sure to visit them on our business page.
The summer recreation program for area youth includes basketball, baseball, softball and much more.  Hess Pool boasts of two water slides, a diving board, basketball goals and other water related activities for young and old.
Our five-member city council, as well as myself, are committed to the continuing betterment of the community.
Once again, thank you for visiting our web site.  I hope that you will visit Canton and take the opportunity to get to know the wonderful citizens in our city.

Earl Maltbie, Mayor
Mayor since September 2014
