Serving The People First

Supervisor’s Office

Glenn L. Swanson- Supervisor


The Township Supervisor serves as Chief Executive Officer of the Township. The Supervisor’s duties and responsibilities include serving as chairman of the Township Board of Trustees, supervisor of the general assistance program, and treasurer of all town funds including general assistance, cemetery funds, and road and bridge funds.

Unlike a mayor or village board president, the Supervisor may vote on all matters before the Town Board. Generally speaking, other chief executive government officers may vote only to break a tie. In this regard the Supervisor serves as a Trustee and may make or second motions, participate in all legislative discussion and should exercise voting power on all issues before the Board.

The Supervisor maintains sole jurisdiction over the general assistance office. In administering general assistance programs, the Supervisor adheres to standards approved by the Illinois Department of Human Services.

Temporary Disabled Parking Placards are available at the Township
Office with the proper forms from your doctor. Permanent Placards must
be obtained from the Secretary of State’s Office. The proper forms can be faxed
from the Township office. The Placard will be mailed directly to the Applicant.
