  • Mr. Heid demolished the former pallet manufacturing facility, cleaned up the property, and built a driveway connecting it to the Heirloom Market.
  • The IDOT curb ramp & crosswalk project is nearing completion. Pictured here are the newly painted crosswalks located at the intersection of Main St. and RT 84.
  • Look for the new pedestrian-activated crosswalk safety beacons, which were purchased by the Village with the assistance of generous donations. Village employees will be assembling and installing them soon.
  • The library's rock garden project has spread through town!
  • Look for these hidden gems on Main Street. The library's rock garden project is like an Easter Egg hunt!

Welcome to Thomson, Illinois, where the river meets the town. Situated along the banks of the great Mississippi, where you can pull up a chair, watch the sun go down and dip your toes into the mighty Mississippi river, all in one place.



Village of Thomson residents: due to technological difficulties, your December water/sewer/garbage bills will be delayed. This will result in an extended number of days for December’s billing cycle. Thank you for your cooperation. If you have any questions, please feel free to call Arleta Vian, water/sewer Billing Clerk at Village Hall.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Vicky Trager - Village President

The US Census Bureau is hiring! The 2020 Census is VERY important to small rural communities, especially Thomson.  Anyone over 18 with a drivers license can apply, pay starts at $17.50/hour and the work is short-term, so it is great for anyone who would like to earn some extra income!
