If you are looking for a quiet and welcoming town to relocate your family to, look no further than Jetmore. Located at the intersection of US 283 and K 156, Jetmore is the County Seat of Hodgeman County and the home of the Longhorns.
With a population of about 900, the City of Jetmore has shown great resilience throughout the years as families and friends keep finding themselves coming back. The City of Jetmore offers amenities like City Parks, a Golf Course at Cheyenne Hills, a City Lake, as well as utility services such as electric, water, and sewer. When it comes to grocery and dining, Jetmore has a local Food Center as well as a number of good family-owned restaurants. We are located just 25 minutes north of Dodge City and 45 minutes east of Garden City, so going shopping is not a problem.
Come and walk down our famous Main Street with the beautiful street lights, side walk designs, and benches to rest on. While you do this, take a moment to circle our historic County Courthouse. Finding a more friendlier place to be will be hard. So we encourage you to stop in, take some time to talk, and soak in what all Jetmore has to offer. We may be small in size, but I think you will be surprised with how much we have to offer!
The governor’s order preventing utilities from disconnecting customers for non-payment has expired. That does NOT mean that the city will rush to disconnect those persons who have fallen behind during the last few months. Instead, we will be reaching out to discuss payment of the outstanding utility bills. The list is quite small, but for those on the list, we will be working with you to get caught up as quickly as possible. If you know you are on the list, we would be grateful if you would contact us as soon as you are able to help us figure out fair and equitable terms.
The city park playground as of today has been reopened. Per the Hodgeman County Health Department and Dr. Kristie, we will be placing signs with the following information. If you feel safe to do so, please have the kiddos once again enjoy our park swings and play structures. Thanks very much for your cooperation and patience during these difficult and complicated times.
