Marion, Illinois is a great place to live. Once the "powers that be" answer for their schemes and real estate taxes are reestablished to the appropriate taxing bodies, things should level out. Hopefully, the voters will correct the measures by eliminating the grifters who were elected to office and have plagued the city's services and county coffers.

Until then, expect to pay upwards of 8.5% sales tax for hardly any community services at all - unless you are one of the mayor's pals who have participated in the numerous TIF Districts - which have robbed our school district and cause the tax payers of the county undue burdens and hardships.

They have taken care of most of any major flooding areas here, unless we get 3"-5" rains in one day. Most any where is not bad in Marion, most people are building new homes north east,south east and the south west parts of Marion now. There are a lot of older homes in Marion and many of them are nice ones. Some would say to avoid the southern part of town, but it just depends where and what kind of home you want, either to buy or rent.If you wish, I can post some links to realtors to check areas out.

Hey johny did you not see that they already live in Illinois??? If you hate it that much them MOVE. Now to answer the question I student taught in marion and while I was there I loved it. Marion has great schools and the teachers really cared about their students. As for my town we have no place to shop so we have to drive to Marion for everything. If I wanted to move but stay local I would move to Marion.
Yep

Johny you dont know much about Marion, there is no telling what your problems are but you need to go back to where ever you came from.

Marion is no different then any where else, there are good points and bad points about Marion. In general Marion is a good place to live, I moved here in 1971 and since then its been a good place to live when compared to LA where I'm from.

Crooks and liars are every where, so good luck living where they arent ! It sounds like Johny is talking about the Marion City Council/Mayor Butler to me, not the people of Marion.

Johny You are one stupid person did you not read the name states Johnston City where the hell did you get Benton from?????? It sounds to me like not many people like you so there for you are full of nothing but hate. This area would be much better without out you in it. You can take something that is great and make it sound awful I am sure. Please get the hell out of our county or further more our state!

Stay away from the south side of town. Too much white trash, especially D. street.

Marion is a horrible place to live. I am 65, a retired professional, widow. I pay all my bills on time. Today my water was turned off because I missed a Jan payment. I had knee replacement surgery Dec 29th, and I inadvertently screwed up my bill pay on three of my bills. One was the marion water bill. They sent a notice within three days, I called immediately to apologize and explain. I reset the bill pay for Jan 25. They said they never got it.
I got another bill today, but not before they turned my water of without any warning. I had to pay a reconnect fee of $30 ($95 total). I feel victimized.
The other really important issue for me is I feel like they (the village) treat all the residents as dead-beats. It wouldn't matter if Pres Obama was living here. Everyone is treated like they can't pay their bills. It is an insult to live here.
The other thing is that it is one size fits all. The fact that I couldn't drive, was on medication, didn't matter to them. No reversal of charges for me.
When I told them that the gas or electric would not have been shut off, I was told we can live without water. That I could go buy bottled water??? Not when you can't drive. Then she said, Don't you have any friends?"
This policy will not change because the deadbeats set the policies. The professional people just pay the charges rather than have their name in print. No one protests. No one wants to name the white elephant in the city.
The city uses negative extortion. 200 people she said had their water shut off. How many men are employed to do that?
Service has to work both ways for a city to thrive on growth and respect. There is no respect for its finest citizens in Marion.
