WELCOME TO ELK GROVE TOWNSHIP
A Message from Supervisor Michael Sweeney
Welcome to Elk Grove Township! It is an honor and a privilege to serve as Elk Grove Township Supervisor. As a lifelong resident of Elk Grove Township I remember going to bike safety as a student at St. Zachary School in Des Plaines. At the time I didn’t know what Township Government was, but I knew about Bike Safety Town. Over the years I learned that Bike Safety is a great program, but Elk Grove Township is so much more. Township government is the oldest form of government in Illinois and continues to be an integral part of our community.
Today Elk Grove Township provides residential property tax advocacy and essential human services. As a Township we provide direct and indirect human services. Direct services include Senior Citizen Bus transportation, Youth Services and a food pantry. In addition to our direct services, Elk Grove Township provides grants to organizations that provide human services to our residents. The Kenneth Young Center, The Northwest Community Hospital Mobile Dental Clinic and Wings, among others, are organizations that receive Township grants. Contracting with outside organizations to serve our residents creates efficiency and allows us to stretch every tax dollar we receive and avoid duplication of service. We take pride in providing the best service possible as efficiently as possible.
I’m proud to say that Elk Grove Township is working very well. The Township has no debt, is 100% funded in its pension obligations and has a healthy surplus.
Please explore our website and learn more about what we do. We are an open book. On our site you can find our minutes, levies, budgets and other financial information.

I look forward to continuing to serve you.
