The Naperville Township has been in operation since the mid-1800s.
10 Illinois Compiled Statutes 5/13, et seq. provides that Judges of Elections are responsible for the administration of election procedures in the polling place on Election Day, ensuring that the election process is administered fairly and in accordance with the law. Without Election Judges, polling places cannot legally operate. Election Judges open and close the polling place, ensure that only qualified voters are permitted to vote, maintain order in the polling place, and assist illiterate or physically disabled voters, among other duties.
The base pay for all Election Judges is $130.00 per Election, but one who has been tested is paid an additional $30.00 per Election. If an Election Judge opts to also pick up Election supplies, additional compensation is paid. Eligibility to become an Election Judge requires that one must be a U.S. citizen, conversant with the English language, skilled in the four fundamental rules of mathematics, and among other eligibility requirements, may be neither an elected Committeeman nor a candidate for any office in that election. If you are interested in becoming an Election Judge, you may contact your party chairman, your township precinct committeeman, or your election authority to express your interest in serving as a Judge of Election.
Further detailed information is available on the Illinois State Board of Elections website.
The Illinois Township Code 60 ILCS 1/, and Naperville Township Ordinance T-14-0311-03 require residential property owners in unincorporated Naperville Township to maintain their properties. By law, grass must be mowed to a reasonable height, weeds must be controlled, unsightly trash and debris must be removed, and retention and detention ponds must be kept free of noxious or offensive odors, insects, and algae.
Every year, we have received a number of homeowner complaints about properties that are not in compliance. We have then taken appropriate steps to abate such nuisances through landowner cooperation where possible, and through Ordinance enforcement where cooperation has not been forthcoming. Where landowners do not remedy the situation voluntarily, Township employees or private contractors are paid to do so, and upon payment to the contractor, the landowner is then billed for reimbursement. In those few instances where the landowner has not reimbursed the Township, a lien is then created by legal counsel for the Township, which is then recorded against title to the property for future handling, all in accordance with law.
The Township sincerely appreciates our residents reporting noncompliant properties, as well as the patience and cooperation of those landowners voluntarily correcting the problems reported.
The goal of the Town Clerk is to help connect our residents with Board of Trustee’s meeting information and Township services. Please contact us if you have any questions or inquiries about Township information or documents.
