Township Updates for August 13, 2020

Oak Park Township Updates - Effective August 13, 2020

Plans for Gradual Reopening to the Public to be discussed by Board
Oak Park Township is currently closed to the public, and most of our staff are working remotely. We can be reached by telephone and we offer assistance for residents via telephone and telehealth appointments. We continue to provide nutrition services for older adults with home delivery and drive-through meal pick-up. Transportation to dialysis or medical appointments is also available. Limited services, like notarizing documents, are being done in our parking lot, with social distancing guidelines in place.
In preparation for gradually opening our offices to the public, the Township Board of Trustees will discuss planning at the August 18, 2020 meeting. Please check the webpage for login information and updates.
