Welcome to Antioch Township

We are very proud of our multipurpose building that was built to serve as much more than just a township hall.

This project was envisioned by the late Representative Tim Osmond and Supervisor Steve Smouse as a way to share property and assets: to build a building that not only would serve as an administrative center for both, but also to serve the community and seniors in the area as well.

Township Supervisor Stephen Smouse

From the Desk of Steve Smouse, Township Supervisor: (March, 2014)

Spring is only a month away, seems like a stretch when the snowflakes are falling and single digits are looming for the weekend.

Monthly senior events are planned (call our office or see our web site for info).

Don't forget to check the Township's Calendar on a regular basis.

We've just added an Easter Egg Hunt, at Osmond Park, on Saturday, April 4th, from 10:00 AM till Noon. All the details are in the Calendar!

Road and improvements and the completion of the parking lot at Tim Osmond Park are in the planning stages.  We use grant money and our own budgeted funds for these projects and they will be fully paid for upon completion.  We continue to provide the best township services that we can afford without raising taxes during these lean times.

Happy almost Spring!

We're seeing more and more bicyclists on the roads in Antioch Township. Safe riding requires that both the cyclists and motor vehicle drivers know the rules of the road.  

Ensure your safety by making certain you're familiar with the rules, have proper safety equipment, and working headlights and taillights by downloading a copy of Bicycle Rules of the Road from the Secretary of State's Cyberdrive website.


SWALCO Recycling Bin

As part of a new clothing and textiles community-wide recycling program, Solid Waste Agency of Lake County, has bins placed throughout Lake County.

The recycling project is the culmination of research done by SWALCO officials on how much of the county’s textiles end up getting thrown out versus repurposing them.

Merlanne Rampale, SWALCO director of community outreach, said that 85 percent of unwanted clothing and textiles end up in landfills, like the one located in Grayslake. She added that the average person throws away 70 pounds of textiles each year.

“I knew the number would be high, but I didn't’t know that it would be this high,” Rampale said of the amount of textiles that can now avoid that fate and instead be recycled via one of the 13 bins that are located at sites such as park districts, city hall offices, fire stations and public works facilities in Fox Lake, Grayslake, Gurnee, Mundelein, North Chicago, Lake Barrington, Round Lake, Round Lake Beach, Round Lake Park, Vernon Hills, Warren Township, Wauconda and Zion."

The recycling bins are just the first tier of the program, Rampale said. Tier 2 will ask of organizations such as libraries, schools and community groups to help with the collection of these items by holding one-day, week-long or permanent textile and clothing drives that can be dropped off at SWALCO or picked up by SWALCO officials.

“Ninety-five percent of what we collect will be repurposed and recycled,” Rampale said. “It’s such a win-win for our community and our planet.”
