My name is Russell McClure and I am excited to serve as the Mayor of Southport.  My family is happy to call Southport our home for over 19 years, and we find Southport to be a friendly, vibrant community.

The City of Southport elected officials and volunteers are eager to keep Southport growing and to make it a great place to live, play and work.

The Department of Parks and Recreation has a year of family, friendly fun ready for you. The Southport Park renovations are complete and the park now boasts a new basketball court, softball field and a new accessible playground. Chief Vaughn and our Southport Police work diligently to keep our residents and streets safe and the Redevelopment Commission is working to make our business district grow and prosper. Thanks to the Board of Public Works and Safety and a grant from the State of Indiana, you will see additional improvements on our streets and sidewalks. Our Stormwater Utility Board has begun working on improving drainage on Southport streets and neighborhoods.

I enjoy serving as your Mayor and hope to see you often as you shop, play and travel through Southport.  Please visit our city website to get the information you need including meeting dates and the  Southport ordinances.
