Wayne Township Illinois

Townships of Dupage County Close window/tab to return here

Founded in 1850, Wayne Township is a 36 square-mile area located in the northwest corner of DuPage County, which contains all or portions of Bartlett, Carol Stream, Hanover Park, Wayne, West Chicago, St. Charles, as well as a large unincorporated area.

Overseeing the general operation of the township is the township Supervisor, one of eight elected officials.

The Clerk is responsible for maintaining township records and coordinating matters of voter registration and elections with the county. By law, Illinois townships are charged with three basic functions:

  1. General assistance for the indigent. This is provided by our General Assistance Department.
  2. The assessment of real property for local taxation, supervised by the Assessor.
  3. Maintenance of roads and bridges not covered by federal, state, or other local jurisdictions. The Road Department is supervised by the Highway Commissioner.

In addition, the Senior Center provides seminars on many topics and a host of social activities to help township seniors maintain an active and productive lifestyle.

WAYS (Wayne/Winfield Area Youth/Family Services), housed in the Wayne Township office, is funded jointly by Wayne and Winfield townships.

Wayne Township cooperates extensively with the DuPage County Sheriff's office and pays for the services of an additional deputy assigned specifically to the township.
