One of the Fastest Growing Cities in Southern Illinois

With our 2020 Vision in full swing we expect Marion to be the leading example of growth in Southern Illinois in coming years. With property tax relief, economic development resources, safer school initiatives, city beautification projects, and stronger code enforcement, Marion is slated to be one of the best places in Southern Illinois to live, work, play and grow.

Mayor Mike Absher

Hello and welcome to Marion, virtually speaking. If you are visiting us on the web for the first time, I want to invite you to come visit us in person. I would love to meet with you! I believe our town is an Oasis of Opportunity. And that just isn’t a slogan, but it is our mission each and every day to connect city services, private capital, vision and entrepreneurs together to make Marion into what it can be, what it should be, and perhaps with your help, what it will be.

At City Hall, we pride ourselves on being accessible and approachable. We aren’t bureaucrats spinning up red tape! But you don’t have to take this at face value on a web page. Please feel free to give me a call anytime! I would love to answer your questions and talk to you about what you’d like to see in your new hometown or help you find a home for your business idea.

Michael W. Absher, Mayor
