City of Battlefield, Missouri

The City of Battlefield was incorporated as a 4th class city in 1971 and as permitted by Missouri State Statutes, has the mayor/board of aldermen form of government. Currently the City has three geographically divided Wards which have two Aldermen each. Ward One is generally located south of Elm Street to the city limits. Ward Two is from Elm Street north to Weaver Road and Ward Three is from Weaver Road north to the city limits. Battlefield has experienced rapid residential growth in the last five years! We've grown from the 2000 US Census population of 2,385 to our current estimated population of 5,000. Large subdivisions have been planned and are being built in all areas of our city. While the growth has slowed some since the 2003-2004 timeframe, we continue to field inquiries from developers interested in our community.   Learn More


Public Water Supply District (PWSD) #1 is upgrading their pipes in various parts of the city.  You may experience  water outages or discolored water from time to time.

The City of Battlefield has NO control over this situation.  PWSD is a separate legal entity that furnishes potable water to a water district which includes Battlefield.

If you have water problems, please call PWSD at 881-1762 to report them.  If you call Battlefield City Hall, you will be given their number and directed to call PWSD.

If we get any prior notification of potential water outages from PWSD we will immediately put it on our website, www.battlefieldmo.gov and our Facebook page, www.facebook.com/battlefieldmo.

Thank you for your consideration.

Anytime is a great time to get yourself an emergency weather radio, but now is an even better time. Storms never take a rest, and every month of the year there has been a recorded tornado. Now, you have an even better reason to come to City Hall and purchase a weather radio.

We currently have 30 desk top weather radios and 8 handheld weather radios on hand. To clear out our inventory, we have reduced the price from $25.00 to $15.00. Yes, only $15.00, so come get one or more while they last. Once they are gone, that’s going to be it.
