Township government is the oldest form of government continuing to function in North America. All townships in the State of Illinois are required by law to perform three functions:
- General assistance
- Property assessment
- Road and bridge maintenance
What makes us “award-winning”? Here at DuPage Township, we have chosen to go beyond state mandated requirements to provide a variety of other services for our residents. These include:
- Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)
- Senior services
- Senior and disabled transportation
- Youth and family services
- Food pantry
- Notary public
- Marriage licenses
- Emergency assistance
- Community resource database (C.O.M.P.A.S.S.)
We are also proud to provide a number of free programs:
- Housing and Career Development
- Credit Counseling
In addition, we are host to a satellite office of the Will County Clerk . Here residents of Will County can order certified copies of any document available through the Will County Clerk’s office such as:
- Birth certificates
- Death certificates
- Marriage records
Will County Recorder Karen A. Stukel also has a full service satellite office here. Services provided include recording all documents, including subdivision and related plat documents, and military discharges. Copies can also be obtained from a wheelchair-accessible public search computer, or from our staff member. Of course, online public document access is always available at www.willcountyrecorder.com.
Our Joseph & Sarah Levy Senior Center not only is home to many of our activities and programs, but it is also a beautiful venue for wedding receptions, parties, showers, meetings, and other events, available for weekend rentals.
Adjoining the Levy Center is our stunning Roger C. Claar Enabling Garden. Featuring a charming gazebo, raised planters, and cobbled pathways, this stunning oasis is the perfect setting for an outdoor wedding or other special occasion, and is wheelchair-accessible.
