Township Administration

The township represents self-governance in its truest form.  Medina Township is governed by a board of five members elected at large. This board is directly accessible to the people with without layers of bureaucracy. The board serves as the township’s legislative body, setting policy, enacting local ordinances, adopting budgets, and levying taxes. The township board also performs a number of executive functions, such as enforcing ordinances, approving expenditures and hiring employees.

The board, as part of its administrative duties, entered into a contract with the Peoria County Sheriff’s Department for a designated deputy to patrol Medina Township. Also, on a seasonal basis, the township board contracts with the Peoria County Sheriff’s department for a bike patrol in addition to the designated patrol car.

The Medina Township parks and recreational areas also are under the administrative responsibility of the township board and overseen by the township supervisor with the support and assistance of the Medina Township Clerk. The township, through its park system, host such events as the annual Brad Wallin St. Jude Baseball tournament. The township park also serves as the home baseball field for the Mossville Junior High baseball team.

Additional services include General Assistance,  for those residents who qualify, through an application process. The application for General Assistance may be obtained by contacting the township office Administrative Assistant by telephone 309-579-2205  or by email at Mandy.Forbis@medinatownship.org

Notary public service at no charge for Medina Township residents is provided during normal business hours.

The administration of Medina Township is responsive to the community needs because their elected officials are closer to the people and far more accessible. Residents can actually reach the township supervisor, the township clerk, the township trustees, the township assessor or township road commissioner by telephone, email or at the monthly meetings.

Townships perform very efficiently compared to other units of local government.

Township government existed more than 140 years before the signing of the Declaration of Independence. May it continue to thrive in the 21st century.
