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.




Minonk Public Works is here to keep our City running, the water flowing and our streets and sidewalks safe for traffic.  Among the many services that our Public Works staff provides, the focus is on the following items:

  • Street repair
  • Water Treatment and Production
  • Underground Utility Maintenance
  • Sidewalk Repair and Replacement
  • Park and Green Space Maintenance
  • Wastewater Treatment
