Supervisor’s Message

THE BOARD:

As we come to the end of 2022, we reflect on the efforts and work accomplished by the Township. This Board kept our commitment to fiscal responsibility of taxpayer money and maintained 0% percent tax increase over last year’s rate. We have increased our services and have provided additional relief to our most vulnerable populations!

DEAR PILOT PROGRAM:

Palatine Township launched a donor based pilot program in response to rising inflation impacting the area’s neediest population. The temporary program is called Donors Empowering Area Residents or “DEAR.” The aim was to alleviate the impact of increased fuel and food prices. DEAR concluded at the end of October 2022 for an impact study.
Through the program, qualified residents received a $25 gift card at their 30-day food pantry appointment to purchase gas, additional food or household items. The distributed cards were donated to the Palatine Township Needy Family Fund. Over $76,000 in gift card assistance was issued thanks to donors like you! No taxpayer dollars were used for this program.

In 1850, the townspeople gathered at a local schoolhouse to choose a new name for the township.It is very likely that the name Palatine originated from the “Palatinate” area along the Rhine River in Germany, The European home of many of our early settlers.
