I still believe with all of Pekins faults its still a good town to live in. Sure things aren't always the way we might want it an we do have a city council. Why air ur concerns there? Keep going until u get answers.... dont give up. That's just lets things you want changed. Run for city council but dont appear to complain an not at least try. Their are good people here....they just need someone to encourage them. Could that be you?

I did business with a local merchant in Pekin from 1994 to 2001. It is amazing how much the town changed in that amount of time. By 1998 or 1999 the crime had risen considerably, due to meth. Many homes have been burglarized by druggies to support their habit. To the person who said that most of the crime in Pekin is not felony crime: methamphetamine manufacture is a federal felony.

I also had an issue where I was a victim of theft by a person from Pekin a couple of years ago. The Pekin police department and Stuart Umholtz were of no help. I was told that it was a "civil matter". Actually, I know for a fact that the suspect is good friends with many Pekin police officers. Yes, the good old boy network is alive and well in Pekin!

Pekin is actually a fairly rough town. There were a couple of times where some hillbillies/druggies with no teeth tried to provoke me into a fight. The last time was at Walgreens on Court Street in 2011. I just smirked, shook my head, and walked away.

To hi: I would suggest Morton, IL or East Peoria, IL as a place to live. Just stay away from Pekin.
Thank you foR the info!
