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.

Selected Notices
Soliciting, No Knock Registry now available!
Mar 09, 2017

Per City of Minonk ordinance 2017-004, residents of Minonk now have the option to be added to a No Knock Registry list or they can pick up a sign from City Hall to place in their window. This is to notify Solicitors/Peddlers that they are not allowed to “knock” on your door. The list will be provided to Solicitors/Peddlers when they come in to City Hall to pay for their permit. The list handed out will not contain your name or phone number, just your address. If a resident prefers a sign to hang on their door or in their window, please make sure that it’s clearly visible.

To be added to the No Knock Registry, please call City Hall at 432-2558 or email us at cityhall@cityofminonk.com. Any resident of Minonk interested in a sign will have to stop by City Hall to pick one up.

Just a reminder, if a solicitor ever stops by your home, ask to see their City Solicitor’s/Peddler’s permit first. They are required to have this with them at all times. If they do not have one, ask them to leave and contact the Minonk Police Department at 432-2341. This is the PD’s non-emergency number. However, if there is an emergency, call 911.
