Building on 100 Years of Vital Human Services!

In 2017, River Forest Township celebrated its 100th anniversary. As your Township moves forward into its next century, we reaffirm our vision: to enhance the health and well-being of River Forest through caring, connection and community.

As such, our mission continues to be the funding and delivery of vital human services to our community, specifically seniors, youth, those with mental health needs and developmental disabilities, and those with financial need.

In addition, the Township Assessor's office remains committed to advocacy, information and service on behalf of residents and their property tax needs.

Townships are units of government independent of village governments. Townships focus on human services, while villages deliver municipal service such as police, fire, parking and streets.
