Mayor’s Message


It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the Village of Coal City website. On behalf of myself, the village board, village administrator and the entire village staff, we hope you will enjoy this site and learn all about our great village.

Coal City is located in Grundy County and is conveniently located near major Interstates. It’s a rural town of approximately 5500 with great schools, great people and proximity to industry that provides for well paying jobs. It’s a great place to work, live and play but if you’re looking for some big city excitement Coal City is a mere sixty minute drive or train ride away from Chicago.

Our warm, friendly residents take great pride in our Village and what it has to offer. Our churches, Library District, School District, Fire District, civic organizations, and business community work with the Village to ensure the needs of our citizens are met. We are proud of our village and are always looking for ways to improve the quality of life for our residents and visitors.

We have village parks supporting baseball, softball, basketball, hockey, skateboarding and soccer. Our Park Board delivers entertainment and activities year round with concerts in Campbell Park, a car show, a city garage sale, hockey tournament and much much more. We are close to lakes and rivers for boating or fishing or just hanging out with your family.

Contact information is available throughout this site for various Village departments and elected officials. I invite you to contact any of us as needs arise.

It’s my honor to serve the Village of Coal City and its residents as their Mayor.
