Mayor's Message
Mayor Shawn Rennecker

I would like to welcome you to the City of Barry webpage. I am proud to serve as the Mayor of my hometown. Barry is a progressive rural community that strives to continually improve the quality of life for its residents.

Barry is fortunate to have a generous number of volunteers that make the community what it is today. Weather it is organizing our yearly Apple Festival, supporting the local food pantry, or pitching in to raise funds to develop a YMCA, our residents get the job done!

Barry has a strong business community for a community of our size. It benefits from a number of businesses to provide a strong tax base and jobs to the community. Barry’s location on Interstate 72 has provided it many opportunities for economic development.

If you have any questions about our community do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you for visiting the web page and your interest in Barry.

Shawn Rennecker
