Village in Strong Fiscal Position with No Debt

As Mayor, Mike McCormick’s conservative, fiscally-responsible governing has produced a strong fiscal position for the Village, with no debt and no outstanding pension liability.

By keeping the cost of government low, the Village levies the lowest property tax rate of any municipality in Madison County. Mayor McCormick has refused to take the Board-imposed pay raise and opposed the hiring of a City Administrator.

Through Mayor McCormick’s leadership, Godfrey has seen improvements to parks and streets, including improvements to Stamper Lane, Clifton Terrace, Pearl Street, Lars Hoffman Expressway, and more.

New lighted baseball and turfed soccer fields, parking improvements, and planning for future bike trails are enhancing the quality of life for Village residents and youth.

It will offer an established location to highlight community events and show others Godfrey is a vibrant community.
