And we're not stopping there. Our infrastructure is very important to us and we have current and long term plans that will improve and expand our roads, water and sewage systems now and well into the future.Keeping our taxes low and spending taxpayer money wisely is yet another example of what we're doing in Gibson City. We believe that it is our duty. We also believe that you should keep as much of your hard-earned money as possible while still providing quality city services that are expected.These are just several opportunities that we're taking advantage of and there's many more to numerous to mention.

In Gibson City, we have an educational system that is second to none and our hospital is constantly expanding their campus and services to provide local, first-class healthcare for old and young alike. You will be impressed with our eighteen-hole, championship golf course and clubhouse and you'll be amazed with our many restaurants and businesses.
