Mayor's Office

Mayor Gail D. Mitchell

On behalf of the City of Fairview Heights, we extend warm greetings and a happy welcome to you. We thank you for choosing our community in which to reside. We are proud of our city and we invite you to attend one of our many fine church's. We do offer elementary education here in the city with two public and two elementary parochial schools.

As I travel around our beautiful city each day, I see so much that has been accomplished in the past few years. Fairview Heights, Southern Illinois “Crossroads of Prosperity,” has grown and prospered so it's sometimes hard to believe that only three short decades ago we were “a wide spot in the road” between Collinsville and Belleville. Our businesses continue to flourish, our residents continue to enjoy living in one of only a handful of cities

where no property taxes exist and our children continue to grow, be nourished and excel in one of the safest communities in the region. I feel that we are fulfilling our roll as a hub for retail activity, commerce, tourism, and quality living as no other community in our area, and as we head into the 21st century, rest assured that we will continue to keep the well being of our residents first and foremost as we move ahead with our plans for the city.

Our vast array of choices in shopping, dining, sites for business, housing and recreation, coupled with the quality of our school system, truly entitles us to proudly proclaim, "We live in Fairview Heights – We've Got It All"

I would like to encourage each of you to patronize the many local businesses you will see in this directory. They are an important part of our city and certainly worthy of your business.

As mayor, my door is always open and I look forward to, and enjoy, meeting with our citizens regularly. Together, we have been successful in making Fairview Heights THE place in Southern Illinois to live, work, and play.
