Welcome to the ORC

Recreation commissions were created by Kansas State Statute. The Ottawa Recreation Commission (ORC) was established in 1947. We are partially funded through property taxes levied by USD290 and specifically dedicated by law for the recreation commission. ORC provides essential quality of life services in the form of recreation programs for this community. We partner with the City of Ottawa and USD290 to operate our programs using properties they own.

The Commission is governed by a five member policy setting board. Our board is comprised of two appointees from the City of Ottawa, two from USD290 and one at-large position appointed by the four previously appointed members. Commissioners, by law; are not paid and donate their time.
