“If not us, who? If not now, when?”

– John F. Kennedy

Townships are the oldest form of government, established in Rhode Island in 1636. Beyond three mandated services, General Assistance to the indigent, assessment of property (appeals), and unincorporated road maintenance by Road District, township government provides other vital services to people next door. These include senior programs and transportation, youth volunteering, assistance to the disabled, health services, cemetery maintenance, and more. Township government serves its neighbors from cradle to grave. Without Palatine Township, your services will be at the mercy of Cook County.

We have installed a new web based transportation scheduler, which
schedules riders, routes buses, and makes our department more efficient.
Seniors, disabled, and their families are now able to schedule online, even
during off hours!

Recently, we submitted a grant request to Cook County to help fund a transportation bus. An additional bus would allow us to fulfill most of the requests we now receive. Additionally, we would be able to transport those who do not have access to transportation as many do not fit the strict PACE guidelines for seniors or disabled. Unfortunately, Cook County denied our request and chose bicycle paths over helping those with difficulties.

A few years ago, Palatine Township put $200,000 in a restricted fund to purchase and maintain an additional bus. I will be advocating to the Township Trustees to use this fund to purchase a new bus of our own. This will allow for more rides, increased special event trips for all, and transportation for those who have none. Please email your thoughts and comments to SLJohnson@palatinetownship.com regarding this request. Look for the Township survey on our website to give feedback on all of our services, too.

I wish you all a fulfilling Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, Happy New Year, and all other special days for you and your family.


Sincerely,
