Supervisor's Office

What We Do


Thank you for visiting our web page.

The township form of government was created to bring government closer to the people they served. Since our founding in April 1850, New Trier Township has served the local interests of its residents and remains directly accountable to the voters who elected them. As the Township's Chief Executive Officer, a township supervisor helps formulate township policies and supervise their enactment. She participates in the development and approval of the township budget as well as the hiring of Township employees. She serves as chairman of the Township Board of Trustees.

By Law, Illinois townships are charged with the basic function of general assistance for the indigent. The Supervisor has the responsibility of issuing General Assistance to eligible persons living in New Trier Township. General assistance provides for food, shelter and emergency relief for people in need.

Beyond General Assistance, New Trier Township has established numerous services and programs. Please feel free to look around our website to find the information you may need.
