About Us

Where our small town, mid-western lifestyle brings our community closer together.

Welcome to Macomb, the home of Western Illinois University! You will find that Macomb is a diverse community with an interesting blend of agriculture, industry, service, retail, education and culture. We would like to think that we have the best of all worlds in Macomb. You can visit a wonderfully rural Farmers Market and experience the excitement of a major university community, all supported by strong aggressive industries, a progressive medical community, a broad and varied retail service sector, and an abundance of cultural events and talent.

Located in the west central part of the state and directly in the center of McDonough County, Macomb serves as the county seat and has assumed the position of the regional center for the area, by providing not only retail and manufacturing opportunities, but also by providing health care, entertainment and cultural services as well.

We hope you find Macomb to your liking. Along with this welcome is an invitation and a challenge that as you look to our city as the potential for new business, as a student at one of our two institutions of higher learning, as a new family looking to move to a new home or a retiree searching for the ideal location to spend your golden years , please help us make Macomb an even better place than it is today.

Please contact my office or any of the other offices or staff listed on this website. so we can make Macomb the best it can be!


Michael J. Inman, Mayor
