The Marseilles City Council voted Wednesday to adopt a new city slogan.
Mayor Jim Hollenbeck says the “the city of remembrance” is meant to pay homage to the many memorials in town including the Middle East Conflict Wall Memorial and the Surround of Honor.
Hollenbeck says the city has had several other slogans, but wasn’t sure if any were ever voted on.
Michelle Turner, who handles marketing for the city, came up with the slogan. She says the idea came from photographing the various monuments in town.
Hollenbeck “the city of remembrance” got good feedback on social media.
