Supervisor's Office

How We Serve You

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 our officials remain directly accountable to the voters who elected them. As the Township's Chief Executive Officer, my role is to formulate township policies and supervise their enactment. My job also includes participation in the development and approval of the township budget, as well as the hiring of Township employees. Additionally, I also serve as chairman of the Township Board of Trustees.

By Law, Illinois townships are charged with the basic function of general assistance for the indigent. As your Supervisor, I have 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.

Services & Programs

In order to meet the demands of rapidly changing times, New Trier Township has established numerous services and programs that help people realize their full potential and strengthen our communities. Please feel free to look around our website to find the information you may need.
