Update RI

City of Rock Island Office Closures - In the interest of public health and safety, City Hall will be closed to the public until further notice.  Water payments may be placed in the secure drop box on the corner of 16th Street and 3rd Avenue.  Envelopes for your payment, applications for City services have been place in the vestibule of City Hall for your convenience.  The Martin Luther King Center, RIFAC, Libraries and the Refuse and Yard Waste Drop Off are also closed until further notice.

2020 Census - Data collected from the Census is vital information for your community leaders to make decisions like transportation, targeted community services, business development and public safety. A fair and accurate count will not only protect Rock Island’s representation in Congress but it will ensure that the City, schools and nonprofits receive their fair share of federal dollars that will impact them for the next ten years.

In Mid-March, homes across the city will receive invitations to complete the 2020 Census. Once the invitation arrives, you should respond for your home in one of three ways: online, by phone, or by mail. Community organizations have volunteered to be community kiosks for residents who need assistance in filling out the census online. A directory listing locations and hours can be found at

The Census only takes ten minutes to fill out. It’s easy, quick and 100% confidential. Don’t miss your chance to participate in the nation’s largest peacekeeping mobilization, respond to the Census and be counted.
