Mayor Chuck Steele and the City Council would like to welcome you to the City of Momence. Located in eastern Kankakee County, Illinois, and approximately 50 miles south of Chicago, Momence is a quiet, friendly community of 3300 residents, nestled along the Kankakee River. Historic Dixie Highway (Illinois Route 1) is the main north-south thoroughfare through the city. The City was established in 1834, and over the years, many organizations and individuals have worked to maintain its historic architecture - both commercial and residential.

We invite you to browse our website, where you will find information about the city's government, including agendas and minutes, financial reports, ordinances, elected officials, forms, and the various departments. Be sure to "Explore Momence" for the variety of events, recreational opportunities, and historic locations within the community. If you have recently moved to Momence, check out "New to Momence" for important local information.

The City Council strives to meet the public service needs of its citizens. We invite all to attend City Council Meetings, which are held at 7:30pm on the first and third Mondays of each month at City Hall (105 West Washington Street).

Momence Heritage Day - A Big Success!

Thanks to all of the volunteers who put in countless hours planning, organizing, and implementing Heritage Day last Saturday. And thanks to those who dressed in period costumes and brought their knowledge of Momence history to life. The photos below are a representation of the re-dedication of the Mt. Airy Little Red School House.
