From the Mayor

Welcome to the City of Brookland! Since the building of the railroad in 1882, the Brookland community continues to grow and thrive. Our agricultural background coupled with an award winning school system and more recently being centrally located between two large medical facilities, puts our town in the spot light to attract families who want to live in an area with that "small town feel" where everyone still takes time to visit at the post office and wave as neighbors pass by. As your Mayor, I am committed to make sure that everything possible is being done to provide customer service to our residents and patrons.

-Mayor Kenneth D. Jones
