A Message from the Mayor -- Suspicious Activity
September 6,
Just in case you haven't been seeing much news lately.

Suspicious activity has been increasingly widespread in smaller communities. Colona Illinois has had car break ins; a car was found in Matherville stolen from Rock Island and they think they ditched it and stole one from Matherville .

It is not really in our culture here to lock up and take keys out of our vehicles or lock our homes at all times, however we should be doing what we can to protect ourselves and not present ourselves as easy targets.

Please discuss with friends and family to do the same. For some reason it looks like smaller towns are being targeted at the moment Thanks Kirk

2014 Cemetery Ordinance and 2016 Map in Photo Gallery
June 7,

The revised Cemetery Ordinance for 2014 has been added to the Photo Gallery in the Village Ordinance album. Sections of interest are the guidelines for monuments, decorations and landscaping, clean up dates and fees for location, opening and disinternment.

A link to the latest cemetery map with names is located on the page. Wait for it to load; it takes awhile.

A complete map of the cemetery with names, lot numbers and maps has been added to the photo gallery. It is on the second page, toward the bottom.

The Map contains pages listing names of those buried in the cemetery, maps of the gravesites and cross references between the two.

You will need Microsoft Excel to open the map.

Any questions, please call the Sexton [phone number on the page.

A new and enlarged map of the cemetery has been mounted on the new free standing kiosk at the gateway to the cemetery.

The donation box is still located by the chapel.

Village Cemetery FaceBook Page Available

Board minutes, Village bills and Treasurer's reports updated
June 22,
Thank you to the sharp-eyed reader who noticed that the Board minutes had not been updated since August 2017.

Your overworked, but unpaid web admin took a rainy Friday afternoon to upload Board minutes, Village bills and Treasurer's reports from September 2017 thru May 2018 for your reading pleasure.

Thanx for letting us know that someone in the Village reads the webpage.

Reporting Stray Dogs and Cats
June 1,
If you wish to report a stray animal, please call the Viola Village Police first [309.596.4111] or e-mail Officer David Perry [].

It is best to start with our local officer as it costs the Village [and you] less to corral the animal than having the County Animal Control do it. Mercer County Animal Control charges a yearly membership fee AND a fee for each animal.

Your Village Board has decided to save the fees by handling the strays locally.

Of course, if this is an emergency and you cannot reach Officer Tom, please dial 911.

January 7,
