The strength of Morton is the spirit of her people.
The same spirit that founded the town, that endured undaunted hard
times, is still alive today. These people want their community to
grow. They recognize that industry is the backbone of the town,
and they are willing to provide the muscle.
Morton is a small city; it has the advantages of
all small cities in America: low crime rate, cohesive community
relationships, support of the family unit. But, because of its proximity
to urban life, its citizens have the unique opportunity of experiencing

Morton is a great place to live. With genuine people
and open space, it is easy to relax here after a day’s work.
The pace is unhurried, and “stress” is not a way of
life. Teamwork is the norm here whether on the athletic field, at
the workplace, or in community activities. The City of Morton is
“good people promoting a great community.”
The City of Morton has recently added 14,000 feet
of new sewer lines out to Interstate 20 that will tie into the city's
existing lift station. This will give businesses and industries
the opportunity to develop at the interstate.
