Supervisor’s Message 

Sharon Langlotz-Johnson

 Palatine Township Supervisor

 “I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.”

– Mother Teresa

My second, and last, term as Supervisor has begun. Our Township continues to offer assistance and services funded by property taxes and donations. Most homes pay less than $50 in property taxes to the Township Town and General Assistance Funds. This funding provides transportation for seniors and the disabled, financial assistance, tax appeals, exemptions, and more. In addition, clients continually are guided to a path of independence from all assistance programs. Our philosophy not only empowers the individuals to become more self-sufficient, it reduces the state tax, federal tax, and fraud.
Additionally, Palatine Township offers $465,000, which is 25% of the levy,
in grants to local non-profit organizations who offer a service in line with our
Township. (A list of each organization, grant, and the programs provided is
available on our website.)
At the time of this writing, Illinois is still without a budget. Palatine Township
continues to fulfill our community needs; always without state funding.
Township government has consistently served at a lower cost, with higher
efficiency, and greater oversight over those who benefit from our programs.
Your tax dollars stay local with more control.
Proposals for eliminating Township governments have surfaced. Without
townships, there will be no local Assessor for appeals or exemption filing, no
senior or disabled transportation, no local assistance for financially distressed,
and more.
You will need to decide if your community can continue the same services
without the Township. I encourage everyone to contact their State
Representative or Senator to express their thoughts either way. If you have any
questions, comments, or need assistance finding your elected officials, please
contact the Township or me directly. We would be happy to help. Have a safe
summer. God bless the military and civil service who keep us safe, and this
United States of America.
