Mayor John Egofske

Welcome to Lemont

The Lemont Village Board and I invite you to explore our Village which offers an ideal balance between big city amenities and small town charm. Located just 25 miles from downtown Chicago, Lemont residents have easy access to world class attractions. We are situated in a unique setting, rising above the Des Plaines River valley which showcases a landscape of charming church steeples and provides excellent outdoor recreational opportunities. Throughout Lemont are many excellent shops, restaurants and businesses to serve residents and visitors.

The Village of Lemont is a proud community and we look forward to continuing our mission to make it even better, while maintaining our small town charm:

“The Village of Lemont is dedicated to promoting and preserving the
character of the community and ensuring a high quality of life through
professional public service provided in a friendly, consistent, and fiscally
responsible manner, emphasizing the best interest of the community as a
whole.”

We are always looking for ways to improve our communications and opportunities to serve. Please contact me or any Village Board member if you have any questions, need clarification on an issue, or have any ideas.
