In a small community like Monmouth, our small businesses are the life-blood of our economy. The City of Monmouth works hand-in-hand with businesses, agencies and driven individuals to create a fertile economic garden for our local enterprisses to grow and thrive.
Whether you are a new business looking to start-up, an existing business looking to expand into the Monmouth market or a long-time Monmouth business looking to expand, let us help connect you to the tools and agencies to help you reach your goal.
Monmouth proudly stands on firm economic footing, with solid municipal fiscal management, strong economic-drive businesses (such as Farmland Foods and Monmouth College) and a history of entrepreneurial innovation and growth. We are a community rooted in a rich history with a progressive vision of a prosperous future in the global twenty-first century economy.
We realize that there is more to economic development that just site selection and incentives -- many factors help drive a thriving small town economy from quality of life to cultural and educational opportunities to access to transportation and an able and ready workforce. We are active and aggressive in our efforts to create a vital "hotspot" for economic growth in our community.
Stop by City Hall and let us share our history, our vision, our community and our tools with you - together we can thrive here in West Central Illinois!
