City Departments

Police Department

In December 2002, the Board of Aldermen approved Jake Reid III as Marionville’s Police Chief after voters, by a large margin, approved a sales tax that would help fund their own police department.

Prior to that time, the city had contracted with the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Department for police protection.  That contract usually provided one officer in town during weekdays, and an on-call status was in force at night and on weekends.  Times have changed, and the need for our own department was clear.

Fire Department

At the Marionville Fire Department, we are committed to protecting property and lives.  We participate in monthly training meetings to cover things such as gas leaks, structure fires, vehicle fires, vehicle extrication, and medical training.  We currently have an active roster of volunteers that strive diligently to help our community in many different ways. The Marionville City Fire Department takes part in Applefest, National Night Out, and, in conjunction with the park board, provide the spectacular fire works show on July 4th.

Recently Marionville has completed an ISO inspection and are awaiting the results. This rating is what regulates a large portion of the cost of homeowner's insurance. As we improve our department, and the rating gets better, citizens and businesses of Marionville will feel the welcomed affects of the decrease in their insurance rates. We have worked hard to improve our equipment and personnel and expect to improve our ISO rating significantly. Please stay tuned – we will post the results when we get them.
