Programs and Functions

Medical Supplies

Wheelchairs, walkers, canes, crutches, and other medical supplies are available for use by Township residents. There is no cost for any of the available items. Users are requested to return the items when no longer needed, and donations of unused medical supplies and equipment are always welcomed.

Food Pantry

A food pantry is available for Township residents in need of food supplies. Residents are allowed to shop once per week. Donations of non-perishable food items are continuously needed. Proof of residency is required to obtain food supplies from the Township pantry.

Transportation Services

Door-to-door transportation service is available to Township residents of all ages. Handicapped-equipped vehicles are also available. Service is available by 24-hour appointment, with same-day service possible. Hours are from 7:00 am to 3:30 pm, Monday through Friday.

Weed Control

A New Lenox Township ordinance prohibits the growth of weeds in unincorporated residential subdivisions to exceed 8 inches in height. The ordinance is effected on a complaint basis. Upon receiving a complaint, owners have ten days to cut the weeds, or the Township Supervisor's office will arrange for cutting and bill the owner.

Mosquito Spraying

In conjunction with the Village of New Lenox, the Township sprays for mosquitoes during the Summer months. The frequency of spraying is determined by the severity of heat, humidity, and rainfall during the Spring and Summer. A biodegradable insecticide is used, which is not harmful to humans or animals. The spray may harm bees; beekeepers should notify the Township Office of hive locations. Residents may also arrange spot spraying for special occasions.

Senior Nutrition Program

Home-delivered meals are available to home-bound senior citizens through an arrangement between the Township and the Will County Senior Services Center. Meals are delivered Monday through Friday. For Information, call the Will County Senior Services at 815-723-9713.
