Clarion and the surrounding area has a longstanding tradition of generous residents who continue to step up to the challenge to meet the needs of the community.
The City owns and operates the Water Department, Sewer, and Storm Sewer Utilities.
The police department provides 24/7 coverage to Clarion with 7 full-time officers and several reserves. The volunteer fire and ambulance services protect not only Clarion, but a large portion of Wright County. Visit the Police page.
Solid Waste and Recycling
The city contracts solid waste management and recycling to two companies. For more details about these services, read this.
Parks, Shelters & Meeting Places
Parks include the downtown Gazebo Park, Fireman's Park, the Aquatic Center Park, and Lion's Park. There are shelters at the Gazebo Park and Aquatic Center Park, and playgrounds are at all four parks.
Clarion's community cemetery is beautifully maintained by city crews.
In 2009, the community doubled the size of the Morgan Everts library to create area for kids to learn, two meeting rooms, and a specialized genealogy research space. The resulting structure is a seamless integration between the 1907 building and the new wing. Visit their website here.
