A Message from Supervisor George Busse

Welcome to Elk Grove Township. It is truly a privilege to serve as the Elk Grove Township Supervisor. I am a lifelong resident of Elk Grove Township and my family has been involved in Township government since the 1800s. Over the years, members of my family have served as Elk Grove Township Supervisors, Clerks and Trustees. I’m honored to be able to continue that tradition of service to our community.

Having grown up in a family deeply committed to Township government, I understand the value it brings to our community. While the role of the Township has adjusted with the transition from a rural to a suburban community, it continues to play an integral role in enhancing the quality of life and wellbeing of its residents. Today, the Township’s primary services are focused on residential property tax advocacy and essential human services. In this time of unending property tax increases, the Township’s taxpayer assistance services are invaluable and is one of the few sources of help for taxpayers seeking to appeal their property taxes or file for exemptions. Every Township resident should be taking advantage of this tax assistance. Equally important is that the Township is a source of support for those in financial, medical and basic living needs. In this regard, essential direct and indirect human services are provided. Direct services include general and emergency financial assistance, senior and disabled bus transportation, family counseling, youth services and a food pantry. In addition to these direct services, the Township provides indirect services through grants to organizations that provide local human services. The Kenneth Young Center, The Northwest Community Hospital Mobile Dental Clinic, WINGS and PADS to Hope are among the agencies receiving support from the Township. Contracting with outside organizations to serve our residents creates efficiency, avoids duplication, and allows us to stretch the tax dollars entrusted to us by the taxpayer. 

I am proud of Elk Grove Township’s long history of providing its residents with an ever-growing number of high-quality, valuable services while maintaining an impeccable record of fiscal responsibility. The Township has no debt, has not raised its tax levy in more than eight years, is 100% funded for its pension obligations and has a healthy reserve. Not many government organizations can say this!

Please explore our website to learn more about what we do and how we can serve you and your family. You can find our meeting minutes, tax levies, budgets and other financial information. Information about the myriad of services is also provided. If you do not see the information that you need, please give us a call or email us and we’ll be happy to help. Also, look for our quarterly newsletter and sign up for our monthly email updates. Your email will be confidential, and you will only receive Township information.

I look forward to continuing to serve you.

George K. Busse
