The City of Staunton was incorporated as a village in 1859.


The city is governed under the Aldermanic-City form of government.  The City Council is comprised of eight aldermen and a mayor.  Aldermen are elected from each of the City's four wards to serve either two or four year terms.  The Mayor, City Treasurer, and City Clerk are elected at large to serve four-year terms.






The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is the principal Illinois Law governing the inspection of public records.  The law provides that any person can request in writing copies of public documents on a specific subject and the public body must provide those records unless those records are covered under one of the exemptions in the act. 


All FOIA requests must be submitted in writing to the primary contact listed below.  Click on the link below for our standard request form.
