Mayor’s Message

Derby, Kansas

There’s no doubt about it – it’s an exciting time to be in Derby, Kansas!

In Derby, everyone works hard to ensure that our town continues to be a great place to live. With a vision to be a community where dreams take root and thrive, along with a mission “to create vibrant neighborhoods, nurture a strong business community, and preserve beautiful green spaces,” the pride of Derby and its citizens is evident to anyone who visits.

And the news is starting to spread. Family Circle magazine has named Derby one of the 10 “Best Towns for Families” in the country, and U.S. World & News Report designated it as a “Best Place to Retire.”

As you read through this guide, I know you will be impressed by the quality of our community. Derby has so much to offer – an outstanding educational system, strong business presence, diverse recreational and social opportunities, and an overall quality of life unmatched by any other in the state.

It goes without saying that I am proud to represent what I believe to be the finest city in the entire country.

Dion Avello
Mayor
