City of Slater... A Great Place for Growing!

Founded in 1878,  Slater, Missouri is defined less by boundaries on a map than by the sense of shared values our residents hold dear. Located in central Missouri in Saline County, Slater has made great progress in the last 125 years and great pride is taken in our commitment to meet the challenges of the 21st century.  

We take pride in our community and the advancements that are being made. Pride that can be seen in our street program, our downtown redevelopment, our community wide clean up campaign, our new housing efforts, our beautiful park system and our positive relationship with the our citizens and business community.  We hope you will take time to visit our web site and find out why Slater is ‘A Great Place for Growing’…
