Message from the Mayor

It is my honor and pleasure on behalf of the citizens of Marshalltown to thank you for finding our web site and exploring our wonderful community. Marshalltown, located in the center of the state, is indeed in the middle of all things good.

You can see the greatness of our community in the volunteerism as exemplified by the hanging basket project that beautifies many of our streets and aquatic center every summer. Thousands of volunteer hours make this possible.

James L. Lowrance

There are numerous activities to keep you entertained at our golf courses, theater presentations, athletic events, trails and parks. We also have one of the finest collections of impressionist paintings, ceramics and statuary in the mid-west. Our educational opportunities are outstanding whether in our community schools or community college which has partnered with Buena Vista University.

Our diverse industrial base provides for great stability in the industries and in the lives of our many talented workers. We are business friendly community with a strong focus on economic development. So enjoy all of the above in addition to our clean air and the best water in the state. It's only part of what makes Marshalltown great.


James L. Lowrance, Mayor
