News from Supervisor Lisa Rusch

I hope all is well with you!  We are giving you more news, and sometimes we send out a special email when the need arises for the very important information that comes up before the next newsletter is due to come out.

Many people are not aware of the area that the township covers.  We have a beautiful map in our office that shows the boundaries.  But we cover all or part of the following municipalities: Grayslake, Hainesville, Round Lake, Round Lake Beach, Round Lake Heights and Round Lake Park.  
If you know of residents or neighbors who you think may like to receive local news, please forward this to them and invite them to sign up.  Thanks for passing on the news.  

Nobody took me up on my offer last month, but we will try again:  The first 25 folks that come in and say they read the newsletter all the way down to THIS sentence, will get a treat.  It is limited to the first 25 folks, and only 1 per person.  KEY word:  What's up, Supervisor's office!

If you need to contact me, please call me at

847 546-1446 x 304 or stop in the office.

Thank you,

Lisa Rusch, Supervisor
