New Lenox Township is located in the heart of Will County, Illinois, on US Route 30 and Interstate 80. Our Township has thirty six square miles within its jurisdiction. It serves almost all of the Village of New Lenox and parts of the individual municipalities of Mokena, Homer Glen, Joliet and, of course, the entire unincorporated areas of the New Lenox community.
Township government has the distinction of being one of the oldest forms of government functioning in the United States today. In Illinois, the township form of government was provided for by the Illinois constitution of 1848 when residents in their respective counties were allowed to vote to establish township government.
New Lenox Township was officially established in 1850.
The powers expressly granted to New Lenox Township by State Statute include providing General Assistance to Needy Families, the Fair and Equal Assessment of all real estate within our jurisdiction and Road, Bridge and Storm Water System Maintenance outside the municipality. Based on needs demonstrated by our community, New Lenox also provides environmental programs, mosquito abatement, paratransit services, senior housing, family, senior and youth service programs and the administration, maintenance and preservation of our historic Marshall and Maplewood Cemeteries.
