Moving Here?

Merriam is a great place to live, work, raise a family and create lifelong memories. We are fortunate to have earned some very impressive rankings to back that up! In addition to sharing the helpful information you need to settle in, we’ve also included some fun “Merriam by the Numbers.” We're happy to welcome you to the community!

  3. Attend a city council meeting to meet your council representative, learn about what’s happening in Merriam, or, to see how the governance structure works. Meetings are held the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month at 7:00 p.m. at City Hall.
  4. Get involved by volunteering! It’s the best way to meet new people and engage with your community. From local events to boards and commissions, if you’ve got the passion, we’ve got the resources to connect you.
