Reaching Out to Serve the Community

Township government is one of the oldest forms of government in the United States, dating back to 1636. Our own township is over 150 years old and continues to evolve with the development of our community, while maintaining many of the functions it has had since its beginning: property assessment, general assistance, programs for the senior population, voter registration and absentee voting, and maintenance for unincorporated roads.

RTA Special Users Travel Cards

The township office is an official registration center for RTA Users Travel Cards, which allow persons, at least 65 years old or disabled to use RTA-funded transportation at reduced rates. Those who qualify and wish to apply for the card should bring a small passport-type photo and a form of identification which includes a photo; and date of birth (i.e. Driver's License, state ID card or passport) to the township office. For your convenience, the township can photograph you for a small fee. Your card will be mailed to your home within a few business weeks.

RTA Senior Discount Cards

Beginning March 17, Seniors can ride for free. If you already have a Reduced Fare Card, you are already enrolled in this program. If not, please stop by the Township office during our office hours. We will complete the enrollment form with you, and if you do not have a passport-size photo to submit with it, we will take your photo for just $8.

Deerfield Library Offers Free Delivery of Books

The Deerfield library has a new program for the mobility impaired. The library will deliver books to people who can't get out of their homes without charge.
