The Village of Marathon City has a long and rich history of economic development. From it’s earliest beginning the Village has been a home to business and worked cooperatively in the growth of commerce in and near Marathon City. Today, Marathon City is the corporate headquarters for several regionally and nationally recognized companies.
We are focused on continued business growth in the village and have established a tax increment finance district. This has allowed Marathon City to capitalize on current infrastructure, develop a business park, and expand infrastructure (streets, water, and sewer).
We invite you to come and visit Marathon City and talk to us about the advantages of making Marathon City the home for your business and your family.
