The 2020 Census is now underway and we encourage all residents to participate.
The impacts of this Census will be felt in other areas for years to come for the 1,298 cities, villages and towns in Illinois and more than 11 million people they serve. In 2015, the State of Illinois received more than 19.7 billion in federal assistance for 16 programs, or approximately $1,535 per capita. The problem you might ask? That funding is based primarily off of the 2010 Census count where only an estimated 76% of Illinois residents participated. The billions of dollars Illinois received was not the full proportion of funding it could have received if every Illinois resident was counted.

Earlier this year the City of Marengo solicited proposals for the expiring refuse and recycling contract with MDC Environmental.

The City is aware of some of the recent discussion within the community about the possibility of Aden Poultry Inc. establishing operations within Marengo. The property in question is located at 21808 West Grant Highway. This parcel is not within the City’s corporate limits and therefore not under the City’s jurisdiction. The City was approached about possibly servicing the property with City sanitary services and annexation, but declined on both as it was not felt this was an appropriate use as it was presented.
