About Us

Hillsboro is the county seat and is located just 50 miles south of Springfield, IL and 65 miles northeast from St. Louis, MO. Our vision is to make Hillsboro a beautiful and sustainable community that encourages and develops an atmosphere of human flourishing for all our citizens. This will be accomplished through developing a locally based economy, building an equitable quality of life, and protecting the natural environment that surrounds our city.
