About Us

It’s our job to listen to you with passion and compassion.
We’re ready to serve you. At the West Deerfield Township office, we embrace the tradition that goes back over 150 years when our Township was founded. That tradition is to serve our community by representing government at its best – by being both responsive and accountable.

ONE OFFICE, A BROAD RANGE OF RESPONSIBILITIES. Our charter is to maintain the functions of General Assistance, Property Assessment, and Voting Services, as well as maintain Unincorporated Roads. But today, our role in the community goes beyond – to our many programs intended to improve the quality of life that you’ll learn about on this web site. 

The West Deerfield Township has a board of Trustees that includes 4 members of the community to provide oversight and ensure we deliver on the promise of representative government. The regularly scheduled meetings are open to the public and we welcome any and all who wish to attend.
