A Message From the Mayor

On behalf of the citizens and business owners and operators of the City of East Moline, I would like to welcome you to our community web site.

The East Moline Community web site outlines our city departments and functions. We in East Moline enjoy a great quality of life as a vital riverfront community.

The City of East Moline has many accomplishments that its citizens are proud to claim. For instance, the City of East Moline is home of the Firecracker Run, an annual footrace with a wide range of participants. East Moline’s residents and businesses have routinely indicated that East Moline is the place where they want to be.

East Moline is represented by a City Council that prides itself on being innovative and progressive to insure East Moline continues as a full service community. This strong community leadership has planned for the city’s future by incorporating lands along existing interstate corridors to ensure easy access and to enhance our growth potential. Our community has a long and rich history with an agricultural-manufacturing economic base. We are proud of our strong skilled-labor work force. Services in our community are provided by highly-skilled medical, technical and business related professionals.
Our children enjoy recognized public and private schools which are known for their scholastic and extracurricular activities. United Township High School and Black Hawk College campuses are important and busy educational centers for their diverse student population. East Moline’s citizens enjoy a riverfront bike / walking path system that connects to parks and other Quad Cities’ paths. Our community also enjoys MetroLink, the area metropolitan transportation system that links East Moline to other Quad Cities’ urban centers.

Citizens of East Moline are not content to maintain the status quo. We continuously set high standards and regularly achieve them. Economic Development is the theme of this Mayor, City Council and Community. Through public and private partnerships, we have many exciting development projects occurring in our city. For example, East Moline became involved in the redevelopment efforts of the old north campus high school site. This site was converted into a state-of-the-art retirement village named Park Vista.
