City of McLeansboro
102 West Main Street, McLeansboro, Illinois 62859

January 2018

City offices will be closed Monday, January 1, 2018 for the New Year. City Hall will be open for Martin Luther King Day on January 15, 2018.

Republic Garbage Services observes New Years’ Day as a work holiday. If your rubbish is collected on that day, your service work will be adjusted by one day.

Costs are going up! In January the cost for a private residential security light will change to $9.00/month, and commercial lighting will increase to $18.00/month. The changes will reduce the categories of lighting, and the increase will bring us closer to the actual cost to the City. The rate differences for folks with private security lights will be noticed in the bill for January (which is mailed in February).

If Winter Weather is in the forecast, please limit/adjust on-street parking to allow for the snowplow!

Remember to use the City Website as an important resource for reading City documents, maps and applications, forms. If you see information or categories missing from the website or find a broken link, please share your comments with the City Clerk.

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”– Martin Luther King,  Jr., from ‘Letter from Birmingham, Alabama Jail’, April 16, 1963
