Veteran's Memorial Dedication - Illinois City 

We are proud of all the veterans in our community and proud of the group who tirelessly supported getting this memorial completed and with such beauty for this small corner of Illinois City.   

We thank all the veterans for the sacrifices that you have made to keep our country safe and free.  And we pray that more brave men and women will continue to be willing to put their time and lives on the line for us in the future as well.  Our constituents in Drury township sincerely thank you for all you have done. 



A couple of instances have occurred in the township regarding right-of-way for our roads typically occurring in the winter months as it relates to snow removal and keeping our roads clear and safe.  Please refer to the Highway Department section on this website for more information as it relates to the right-of-way for your township roads.  It's important for all citizens of the township to understand the rules and regulations regarding this. 


See information about our Drury township roads in the Highway section of this website.

The following are some highlights of how your tax dollars are spent:     

  • We have hauled 4300 tons of rock.
  • We plan to haul 250 tons of cinders for the upcoming season.
  • This year we hauled 290 tons of chips to resurface 1.3 miles of seal coat roads.
  • Dust control (tree sap) at 24 locations is costing 240.00 per location, the township is covering 110.00 of this, leaving a cost of 130.00 for the resident, thus keeping the cost the same as in years past for the residents.

Drury Township was established in 1857.  It had served the constituents of Drury Township for over 150 years, working hard to make sure the people of this area have the government services they need.  We have the original minutes from 1857 until today.  Anyone interested in viewing these can contact one of the elected officials.

Drury Township is in the southwest corner of Rock Island County, located in western part of Illinois. The township is boarded by the Mississippi River on two sides.  Illinois Route 92, which crosses into the state of Iowa, is the main state highway access into the township.

The township has approximately 53 miles of roadway.  There are over 800 people located in the township.
