Message from Mayor Hollenbeck:

Marseilles has a natural beauty with the Illinois river to the south and the city’s historic bluff to the north. Marseilles previously has been listed as one of the safest cities. I love the residents of Marseilles whom always come together when a neighbor is in need. I have seen the city unite in the aftermath of floods, storms and other natural disasters like no other. We have great people that support each other. We have a wonderful police, fire and emergency medical services second to none. I hope for Marseilles continues with controlled growth which extending the sewer and water to Interstate 80 will certainly be a benefit. As Mayor I am “focused on our future”. I want to thank the residents of the community for their continued support of the city council. I also want to thank all of our boards and organizations that are the backbone of the community and continue to strive and help the city work towards our goals and objectives.

My hope is that the city website is utilized by residents and those looking to visit Marseilles whether it be the memorial wall or to enjoy our various campground and experience life on the Illinois River. Our website should be the go to site whether it is to pay a bill or to see what events are upcoming as well as any other important information relevant to the city. The city intends to use the website to keep residents informed.

I came to town in 1975 when I joined the police department. I fell in love with the town and it’s residents. Marseilles is a great place to visit and a better place to live.

Message from the Chief of Police:

As a lifelong resident who was born and raised in Marseilles, I am pleased and honored the city council appointed me as your Chief of Police, a position I take very seriously. Growing up and living in Marseilles has provided me with a unique experience and perspective that I bring to the job. As I approach the beginning of my twenty-fourth year at MPD, I certainly look forward to continuing to collaborate with the residents, city council members, and our entire department in helping create and maintain a safe environment for all who live in and visit our great town.

One reason that makes me proud to be your police chief is the support we continuously receive from our great community. We welcome your support and truly need it to keep providing excellent service to Marseilles. I hope that the partnership between our department and our citizens will continue to grow through open communication and trust, especially at a time when trust between police and citizens is so vital.

Another reason I am excited about taking over as Chief of Police is our upcoming move to the new municipal building, which will house city hall and the police department. From the police department’s point of view, the lack of space and compromises to safety are only two of the factors that contributed to our desire for an upgraded building. The new site will feature public parking areas, as well as a secure squad car garage. In addition, the new building will include a secure sally port for transporting prisoners and an arrestee area, interview rooms, detective, sergeants and administration offices, and patrol work areas. We will also have a training room and the Emergency Operations Center room, which will allow us the space needed to gather all the necessary city officials and department heads in the event of a disaster or other emergencies that could occur in our city. The building also features evidence storage, lab and processing areas, a staff break room, locker rooms and a fitness room. We will look forward to welcoming public visitors at the administrative/records window.

Thus, this new municipal building will allow us to provide quality services in a professional and more up-to-date manner. So, while Marseilles might be a small town, it has a mighty past and the potential for a magnificent future. The Marseilles Police Department is excited to be the guardian of that legacy.

While our department’s motto, “To Serve and Protect,” seems simple, we take it quite seriously. So, in the spirit of that slogan, please do not hesitate to contact us with your questions and concerns. We value the community’s input, and we want to foster the spirit of cooperation, collaboration, and camaraderie between our department and our citizens.

It is, indeed, our utmost honor to serve you and protect you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
