Tonight is the annual township meeting for all Illinois townships.

State law requires all townships to hold an April meeting in which residents have the same voting power as trustees, and can approve or reject spending and initiatives related to township government.

The meeting, usually held the second Tuesday in April, is pushed back a week in years in which the day coincides with the township election. The deadline for residents to put items on the agenda was March 1.
