August 11th Notice of Public Meeting
On behalf of the Village Board, I am proud to welcome you to Roxana, a village with strong foundation and even bigger heart. Roxana is blessed with many qualities that make it a wonderful place to visit or do business and an even better place to live. The Village of Roxana is home not only to Phillips 66, the third largest integrated energy company in the United States, but also to a blooming community that is rich in history, trade, and recreational opportunities. The Village of Roxana has undergone many changes since it’s founding in May of 1921. Roxana became a leading industrial site because of the expansion of pipeline and the construction of the original Roxana Petroleum Company. Thriving on self-sufficiency and community involvement, Roxana was and still is proud to stand on its own.
Quality education with Midwestern value is sure to be found in Roxana’s School District. Roxana Community Unit School District #1 is proud to boast a supreme junior and senior high school, as well as two elementary schools. Among many other outstanding activities, clubs and organizations, the Village has an eventful recreation program and large park district, having housed many activities for youth and adult alike for generations.
Located in the Village of Roxana are a modern, high capacity water distribution system, water treatment plant, and new wastewater treatment facility. Since the formation of Roxana’s first waterworks department, Roxana has supplied, and continues to supply quality water to its residents and also surrounding communities.
Many more positive changes are planned as we continue to recognize the historic importance and expand the potential for economic growth and development.
I would like to thank all of our businesses and residents who help to make Roxana a prosperous community. I hope you also can take pleasure in the marvelous progress and the quality of life we offer here in the Village of Roxana.
Paul Oller, Village President
