On Wednesday, April 29th, the America's Best Communities website announced the 50 quarter-finalists for their nationwide community and economic development competition.

Out of 400 participant communities, 50 were selected as quarterfinalists, with only three selected in the State of Illinois. And yes, the Monmouth region (Monmouth, Lenox Township and Roseville) was one of those three!

This is a great program that allows us to grow from our downtown strategic plan to a larger-scale community and economic development revitalization plan, with the resources to truly engage our community in a shared vision forward. We’ll keep you posted as we move forward on this exciting venture.

Cross Connection Survey PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 04 November 2013 15:55

Monmouth water customers will be receiving a Cross Connection Survey in the mail this week. That survey can either be completed on paper and dropped off at City Hall or you can take the survey on-line.

The Cross Connection Survey is required by the State of Illinois Environmental Protection Agency. The IEPA requires that each residence conduct a plumbing survey. The IEPA requires that the public water supply system initiate and collect the survey data. The purpose of the survey is to determine if cross connections exist in home plumbing systems. Your health and the health of the community can be protected by identifying and eliminating cross connections. Therefore, it is everyone’s civic duty to eliminate cross connections. Drinking water regulations prohibit cross connections. If you identify a cross connection, please contact your local plumber or the Monmouth Water Department at 309-734-6028 for assistance in eliminating potential hazards.

To take the survey on-line, click here.

 
National Entrepreneurship Week PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 20 February 2013 10:07

 

This week is National Entrepreneurship Week (February 16-23). Historically, most new jobs are created by local entrepreneurs taking a risk and bringing a new idea, product or service to market. These risk-takers are really the engine of our economy. We have had a history of bold entrepreneurs here in Monmouth that have helped to shape (and continue to shape) our community. Take a moment this week this week to celebrate those entrepreneurs and what they've given our City and region.

Are you a potential entrepreneur? Do you have that next great idea? If so, there are local and regional resources that can help you refine and focus your idea and take it from the back of a napkin to a business plan to a profitable business. If you think you have what it takes, stop by City Hall (or our local Small Business Development Center in Macomb) to get more information on how to bring your idea to reality.

Also, if you are, or know of a local entrepreneur that needs to be recognized for their efforts, why not fill out a nomination form for the 2013 Small Business Day Eagle Award?

 

 
Loft Apartment Open House PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 19 February 2013 15:36

You've seen the renovation on the Square. Now, get your first peek at the luxury loft apartments atop the old Second National Bank building and the old Model clothing store.

Developer Frantz-Hobart proudly invites the community to tour these newly renovated gems and get a sneak peak at what downtown living can be like here in Monmouth.

The upper-floor open house is from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturday, February 23rd. Please use the entrance on 1st Street.

A quick note on the Frantz-Hobart open house on Public Square tomorrow (Saturday, 11 a.m. - 2 p.m.), because we've had a few queries - it's more of a sneak-peek. The apartments are not fully finished and the elevator is not yet installed (it's on it's way), but they wanted to give the community a chance to see the apartments before anyone has moved in. We can't wait to see what they've done!
