Located to the north of St. Louis on US 67, Jersey County covers over 240,000 acres and is predominately rural. Jerseyville, the county seat, is the largest municipality and offers shopping, restaurants, recreation and a friendly atmosphere for visitors.  Grafton, a tourist town along the river, is the second largest municipality and located on Illinois 100, part of the National Scenic Byway called The Great River Road. The Mississippi River delineates the southern edge of the county and the Illinois River along much of the western edge. The bluffs of Pere Marquette State Park overlook the confluence of the Mississippi, Illinois, and Missouri Rivers.

Mission Statement:

The County Officials of Jersey County are committed to providing the highest quality services in a fiscally responsible manner to promote the health, safety and general welfare of all Jersey County residents. Our guiding principles will be honesty and integrity, community service, fiscal responsibility, and respect for others.

The Jersey County Code Administration Office is finalizing its Hazard Mitigation Plan draft prior to submission to the Illinois Emergency Management Agency and FEMA for review and approval. The plan assesses natural hazards’ risks and vulnerabilities to the county, its municipalities, and school district. It provides recommendations to increase their hazard resiliency and reduce risk. In doing so, these actions aim to protect property and those who reside within the county.

 Due to current conditions, the draft plan will not be available for viewing in person, but is instead available online in PDF format at Jersey County Hazard Mitigation Plan. We invite you to take the next two weeks to review the draft, provide any input you may have, or ask any related questions. Please direct all inquiries to: [email protected].
