Open Houses featured activities at all building locations including the South Clinic, North Building, Central Building and the LSV Senior Center.
Elected township officials and staff were on hand to answer questions, tour the facilities and provide important information about our programs, services and resources.
According to Township Supervisor Louis S. Viverito township government is under state scrutiny.
"Our assets are completely paid for and we run in the black, something that is rare for a unit of government. Yet, there is talk of abolishing townships or rolling the assets into other units of government. Honestly, do you think the State or County could do a better job of providing the services that we offer as affordably as we do?" questions Supervisor Viverito.
"Our goal is to increase public awareness of the valuable services Stickney Township provides, services that will likely cost taxpayers a great deal more if they were left in the hands of a larger unit of government."
Township Day at Stickney Township featured an intergeneraltional event at the North Building with brought together seniors with children enrolled in the township pre-school program and their families; a $2 lunch featuring prime rib at the S LSV Senior Center; a truck rodeo at the Central Building; the weekly Farmers Market at Central and free ice cream courtesy of Andy's at all locations.
