Riverside Township would like to thank all the residents that donated items to the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive this past weekend. A big thanks also goes to all the U.S. Postal Carriers that collected donated food items along their routes, as well as North Riverside's Public Works Department that assisted in delivering all the donations to the Town Hall.

The Township's Food Pantry relies heavily on non-perishable food donations from residents throughout the community and this annual food drive always provides a much needed boost to keeping the Food Pantry's shelves adequately stocked. It is through the generosity of our residents that the Township can continue to offer this valuable service to those that need it, so again, a great big "thank you" to all.

Cook County Department of Public Health Plans to Lift Mitigation Order 2021-11 on February 28, 2022 - Cook County Department of Public Health

On Monday, February 28th, Riverside Township will be following along with the Cook County Department of Public Health’s plan to lift Mitigation Order 2021-11. This means that face masks will no longer be required in all indoor public places for the general public, such as inside the Town Hall building. Proof of vaccination will also no longer be required for events in the Town Hall that serve food or drink for on-premise consumption.

While Riverside Township will no longer require masks to be worn inside the Town Hall, residents may obviously still choose to wear a face mask if they wish.

You can read the entire press release from the CCDPH here: https://cookcountypublichealth.org/2022/02/22/cook-county-department-of-public-health-plans-to-lift-mitigation-order-2021-11-on-february-28-2022/

Cook County Health has reopened 3 mass vaccination sites in order to help vaccinate more individuals against COVID-19. Demand for the vaccine has been on the rise with the Omicron variant surge, and Cook County hopes that the return of these community sites will help those who are having difficulty making appointments for the vaccine at a doctor’s office or local pharmacy.

Any individual 5 and older can be vaccinated at one of the three locations below. Each site offers the Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson vaccine and individuals can receive their first, second, or booster shot as well. Walk-ins are welcome, but it is recommended to call and schedule an appointment at (833) 308-1988.

Forest Park – 7600 Roosevelt Road, Forest Park, IL 60130
Matteson – 4647 Promenade Way, Matteson, IL 60443
Des Plaines – 1155 E. Oakton Street, Des Plaines, IL 60018

Each site is open Tuesday – Saturday, from 8:00 am – 6:00 pm, and Sundays from, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm. For more information, or to schedule online, visit here: https://vaccine.cookcountyil.gov/

2022 Property Tax Cycle Begins

The new year introduces the start of a new property tax cycle. The timing of things this year will be slightly different; however, we will continue to have appeal sessions with the Cook County Assessor and the Board of Review. Exemption applications will be processed, tax levies will be determined by taxing bodies, and 2021 property tax bills will be calculated, sent, and due all before the end of 2022.

Read more about this from the Township Assessor, here: https://riversidetownship.org/2022-property-tax-cycle/

The 2022 property tax cycle has begun and the Riverside Township Assessor is available to help homeowners with exemptions, appeals, and any questions they may have with their property tax bills.

12/28/2021

The Cook County Department of Public Health has issued a new COVID-19 Mitigation order for all of Cook County, effective Monday, January 3, 2022, which will require individuals age 5 and older to show proof that they are fully vaccinated in order to gain entry to certain establishments.

Since the Riverside Town Hall is a government building, and since certain meetings and events held inside the Town Hall fall within defined parameters from the CCDPH, individuals visiting the Town Hall may be required to provide proof that they are fully vaccinated before they enter, depending on the nature of one’s visit.

Face masks are still required for all individuals, aged 2 and older, at all times while inside the Town Hall, regardless of vaccination status.

You can read the entire order from the Department of Public Health here:https://cookcountypublichealth.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/12/CCDPH-COVID-Order-2021-11_122321.pdf

The Riverside Township Community Resource Center was recently awarded the honor of "Innovative Senior Program of the Year" by the Illinois Township Association of Senior Citizen Services Committees!

Congratulations go to Susan Bertuglia, Amber Grzeda, Chris Ward, the Riverside Township Mental Health Board, and to all those involved from partnering agencies that assisted individuals with finding the aid they needed and that helped to make the Resource Center a success.

The Community Resource Center's mission is to provide individuals and families with guidance and referrals for aging services, benefits counseling, intellectual & developmental disabilities, mental health, and substance abuse services. The Resource Center is a joint effort between the Riverside Township Mental Health Board and these area agencies: Aging Care Connections (www.agingcareconnections.org), UCP Seguin of Greater Chicago (https://ucpseguin.org), and The Way back Inn (http://www.thewaybackinn.org).

The Community Resource Center is available Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 9:00 am - 11:00 am and 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm, as well as Saturday from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm. A Community Care Coordinator can always be reached by calling (708) 853-9578 or via email at: [email protected].

Riverside Township is still providing Essential Services (FOOD PANTRY, NURSE'S CLOSET, GENERAL ASSISTANCE AND EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE) and will continue during the COVID-19 Shelter in Place.
We will be in the office with reduced staff during regular hours. The front doors of the building will be unlocked, but our office doors are locked for the protection of staff and the public. We ask that you CALL BEFORE COMING IN. 708-442-4400. Once you come in, get our attention through the glass windows that surround our office doors, and we will direct you further. Requests for assistance will be handled by appointment, and we will be maintaining social distancing. Nurse's Closet has a clip board with the request form at a high top table in the hallway that can be slipped under our front door. We will not be bringing you downstairs to select your equipment, but will instead bring the equipment up to you. Food Pantry will check IDs through the window and will place the tote bags outside our other door for "curbside pick-up". We will have a notary on duty, and please call us for instructions, or email us at [email protected].

A Big Shout Out to Hauser Junior High Administrators who are helping us keep the Food Pantry stocked from the Food Drive!

Due to Covid-19, the Assessor’s Office can only provide telephone-meetings for residents; no walk-ins. Because the County Assessor is no longer accepting paper appeals, the entire process will be completed online. Call: 708-447-7700 or email: [email protected]

Finally, the Mental Health Board's Community Resource Center personnel will NOT be in the office, but will be checking voicemail if you need any assistance they can provide: 708-853-9578.
Need your dog trained or walked; why not both? I am a Professional Dog trainer who competes nationally in dog sports such as agility. No Rover armature here. At Dogletics I offer walks, runs, private training, and daily walking combined with training. This way you can have a well behaved, mentally stimulated/happy pup without the cost of boarding school or daycare.


We have the most up to date technology when it comes to your dog’s walk. In addition to Rover-like scheduling and photo capabilities, we offer live streams of your pup’s walk using our Go Pro Live Technology. Don’t forget to take advantage of our GPS/Fitbit collar that tracks your dog’s whereabouts at all times and could win your pup a free walk if he/she gets the most steps walked in a month.
