Welcome to Wauconda Township’s website.  This is one of the many informational tools that we provide for you.  So browse through our website to become familiar with the services Wauconda Township has to offer.

The mission of Wauconda Township is to provide services, information and resources to assist and benefit our residents.

By law, Wauconda Township is charged with three basic functions:

Wauconda Township was established in 1850 and we are the closest form of government to the people. The township is one of 18 townships in Lake County, IL.  The population of the township is 21,730 consisting of portions of the Villages Island Lake, Lake Barrington, Lakemoor, Port Barrington, Volo, Wauconda and areas of Unincorporated Lake County.  The township covers 24.25 sq. miles of land, our Highway Department maintains 32 miles of roads and we assess 11,820 parcels of property.  We also maintain 3 historical cemeteries within the township and partnered with the Wauconda Historical Society to assist and maintain the Cook House Historical/Museum.
