Minonk is an Objibwa word meaning “Good Place”. In addition to being surrounded by some of the best farmland in Illinois, Minonk is home to some of the friendliest people around. Centrally located on the I-39 corridor, Minonk is a short drive to the campuses of Illinois State University or the excitement of the Peoria River. We are surrounded by the amenities of several large cities yet have managed to maintain our small town charm.
The Minonk Police Department is located adjacent to City Hall at 670 N. Chestnut. Minonk provides 24 hour Police service for our residents and visitors. This department is led by Chief John Wherry and 3 full-time and 5 part-time dedicated Police Officers. The Minonk Police Department can be contacted at 309-432-2341.
