Villa Grove, Illinois is “A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE” as the late Rosie Cler always said. Come visit and see why for yourself! We have a great small town feel, lots of good local businesses (both new and well-established), growing subdivisions with an amazing EC-12 school system, and an easy commute to both the county seat of Tuscola and everything Champaign-Urbana has to offer. We’ve come a long way since the railroad’s inception of a town halfway between St. Louis and Chicago on the rail in 1904. We are glad to provide information and links that make our community thrive and assist residents with items that can affect their day-to-day lives. Please feel free to bring questions and ideas to us as there is always room for more creativity and improvement.

August 2020 Updates!

  • Upon entering Restore Illinois Phase 4 on June 26, our City buildings are open during most business hours.  As before, occasionally doors may be locked due to staffing issues and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.  Face-to-face business including receipt of utility bills will continue so long as visitors wear a face mask/covering and maintain social distancing of at least six feet.  Online payment is strongly encouraged; it is very safe, quick and you will receive an immediate confirmation/receipt – simply click the “Make a Payment >” button below.
  • Your 2020 Annual Water Quality Report is now available here.  To speak with someone or request that a copy be mailed/emailed to you please call 832-4721.
  • The City’s Summer Dayz program is still on track.  Please contact the City offices with any questions…we do not want to have to cancel another program for children due to lack of participation.  Phase 4 guidelines will be observed at all times.  Cancellation updates (primarily due to weather) can be found at the City’s Facebook page at this link.

CITY UTILITY STATUS UPDATES:

Below please find a current summary of the City utility departments as well as the analysis report done by consultant Gerry Hartman, which has been split into two parts due to the size of the whole report.  Updates will be posted here going forward.

ATTENTION:  In regards to the City’s Leaf Vac spring pickup schedule, we have discontinued picking up leaves as of Friday April 17.  We will post fall collection schedule dates for pickup as we get much closer to that time of the year.  As a reminder between now and then, burning of leaves is against City Ordinance; any questions can be directed to the City office at 832-4721.  Thank you!
