Peoria Neighborhoods Map
Modeled after the federal government, the State of Illinois consists of three governmental branches: executive, legislative, and judicial. The executive branch is led by the governor, the legislative by the Illinois General Assembly (House of Representatives and State Senate) and the judicial branch by the supreme court.
Along with nearly 47% of all cities with populations of 5,000 or more, the Peoria, Illinois government has adopted the Council-Manager form of government with a City Manager appointed by the City Council. Usually by contract, the City Manager (currently Charles Randy Oliver) serves the City Council and is responsible for supervising operations and implementing policies. The mayor (currently Jim Ardis) acts as a City Council member and presiding officer.
The City of Peoria has multiple departments to oversee and facilitate the infrastructure, economics, public services, government, and more:
