Develop Your Own Township Website

Townships are busy building their web site pages as part of TOI's web site development program. As one of my initial projects as Associate Director, I am pleased to bring you this innovative and very affordable program.

As technology changes and we are faced with new challenges in communication, it is important to have the necessary tools available. This is the foundation for this new program being offered by TOI – effective communication. Townships across the state experience different financial issues in providing services and/or managing office needs. TOI is recognizing the potential cost associated with web development and through this program we hope to address any possible limitations to become a part of the information age with the lowest cost available ($14.50 per month).

Your Township Image

TOI is offering a new component of Internet based technology to townships across Illinois. All TOI association members are eligible to create and maintain an individual township Web site. The only requirements that must be met are that an Internet connection be established, registration materials are completed then TOI staff will process your application and issue your username and password.

Overview of the Program

As the statewide non-profit organization for township officials, we recognize the need for all townships to have access to the Internet. Additionally, townships may provide their information on the Internet to promote the services they provide as well as show a commitment to improving overall communication among townships. This program provides an Internet based avenue to highlight information from individual townships at a minimal cost. Further, townships are able to avoid the high cost of server hosting and Web site development. The program is designed to be maintained with little to no Internet / Web site experience. If you can type a Word document and send attachments by e-mail, you are ready to complete an application. Build Your Own Township Site Image
