Mayor's Message

mayor nugent sqWelcome to the official Village of Manteno web site. The Village elected officials and Staff work hard to try and make information about the Village of Manteno readily available and easy for our citizens and visitors to access. Manteno is a great Community with a lot to offer and the web site is a great place to explore what is going on in the Community and to communicate with Village Officials.

Interstate 57 connects Manteno from Chicago to southern Illinois at two locations, exits 322 and 318. Industries will benefit from easier access to over 1,000 acres of industrial land via a new interchange to be constructed at the Bourbonnais Parkway. This project is a joint funding initiative by the Federal Highway Improvement Program and the Illinois Department of Transportation. Expected completion of the project is summer 2017.   

The Village does have three Tax Increment Financing Areas (TIF) and an Enterprise Zone Area.
