Township Board Creates Disability Awareness Committee

Seeking Township Residents to Serve on Committee

On Monday March 27, 2023, the Palos Township Board passed ordinance 2023-O-01, creating the Disability Awareness Committee.

The ordinance, sponsored by Trustee Brent Woods is intended to create a committee that will work toward enhancing the self-sufficiency and quality of life for disabled and differently abled residents of Palos Township through the development of productive programs and services, including job training and therapeutic programs.

This committee will work with area parks and recreation departments as well as the Southwest Special Recreation Association to provide services to all residents of Palos Township but focussing on the unincorporated areas where no services are provided by any other agency or organization.

We are seeking 5 members to serve on this committee with special focus on persons with disabilities or caretakers of persons with disabilities.  If you would be interested in serving on this committee, please click here and complete the application form: Application for Board or Committee
