On behalf of the City Council, welcome to the City of Momence.  Momence is located approximately 50 miles south of Chicago. To arrive in Momence from north, or south, you may want to “Drive the Dixie” Highway!  Dixie Hwy/Rt 1 is the major thoroughfare through the heart of downtown Momence.  Momence is a friendly community located along the banks of the Kankakee River.  Often referred to as the "Old Bordertown", Momence is home to more than 3300 residents of many faiths and cultures. You will discover that The City of Momence is a great place to work, reside, and raise a family.

The City Council and I strive to provide assistance in meeting the needs of the citizens of Momence and the many people who travel through our community. We will continue to meet the challenges of providing effective public services and responding to the citizens of the City of Momence.

City Council meetings are scheduled on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month at 7:30 PM. We encourage citizens to attend the meetings and share their comments at each meeting.

Sincerely,
Mick Porter
Mayor, City of Momence

The following are the new "Code Enforcement Zones" and the assigned "Primary Officers".

• Zone 1 – All areas east of Dixie Highway from the north city limits, south to the Kankakee River. Officer Jacob Vekemans is the Primary Officer assigned to Zone 1.
