Welcome from Mayor Taylor Elwell

On behalf of the Board of Aldermen, staff and residents of Leeton, welcome to our community. We think you'll find our community a welcoming small town near many area and regional attractions, including hundreds of area jobs and outstanding recreational opportunities. Leeton prides itself on a strong school system that consistently performs as one of the highest-scoring districts in our area. Leeton also features excellent access to the Katy Trail and hosts a trail head for the Rock Island spur. While you're in town, be sure to check on Grinstead Park on South Main Street as there are always new things happening in our park. For many decades, Leeton has stood strong as an engaged, active and dedicated community. I think you'll find it a great place to call home. 

Taylor Elwell, Mayor
