Open House at the Garage

  • WHEN: Tuesday,June 18,2019
  • TIME:5:00 pm-7:00 pm

Dorr Township will be holding an Open House on Tuesday, June 18, 2019, from 5 – 7pm at the Highway Department, located at 12322 Davis Road.

The township is hoping to purchase property adjacent to the Highway Department to allow us to offer recycling programs for our residents.  A Special Town Meeting will be held Tuesday, June 25, 2019 at 7:00 pm, to allow residents the opportunity to vote whether or not to purchase the property.  There have been funds set aside for this and it would not result in any increase in taxes.  Currently, there is no room to safely provide recycling, and it a service that residents have been requesting.  Recycling and storage will be limited to the area off Davis Road. The Land Conservancy of McHenry County will be working with Dorr Township to restore the wetlands on the property to provide important habitat for wildlife including frogs, turtles, pollinating insects and a variety of birds.  While the site is presently dominated by invasive, non-native plant species due to salt and other road-related pollution, its visible and easily accessed location makes it an ideal test site to learn more about native plant species that thrive in disturbed conditions.  The knowledge gained will provide a benefit to residents throughout the township, county and region.

For more information on the Open House, contact Supervisor Sue Brokaw at 815-338-0125 or Highway Commissioner John Fuller at 815-338-1060.
