Moraine Township government administers public funds to provide responsive, efficient and compassionate services and support for residents in need.
Moraine Township's boundaries include all of Highwood, most of Highland Park and small portions of Deerfield and Lake Forest. The Township officially provides general assistance to individuals; property assessment services in the Assessor's Office; election and record-keeping functions in the Clerk's Office; operates two cemeteries, Mooney's and Daggitt, in Highland Park; a Food Pantry; and Moraine Door-to-Door paratransit van service to medical appointments for seniors, disabled and economically challenged residents. Township is "special purpose" government: apart from the Assessor's and the Clerk's respective functions in property appraisal and voting, Moraine Township provides a safety net for residents with needs not otherwise met by local government – some as mandated by law (General Assistance) and others in keeping with community tradition. (These are found in more detail on the Supervisor's webpage.)
