The Township of Schaumburg was officially established on April 2, 1850. On that date, the first Annual Town Meeting was held and officers were elected.
The Township Today
Township government used to concern itself with taking care of the roads as one of its main priorities. While that function still exists in the unincorporated areas, the Township's main emphasis is on providing human care services in the areas of mental health, disability services, senior services, youth services and welfare services. The Township also provides a myriad of other services including, but not limited to, voter registration, passport services, notary public services, property and tax assessment information, as well as general information and referral services.
From the 1850's through the 2000's the services offered by the Township would not be possible if it were not for the dedicated employees and volunteers in our Township family. Whether a rural community of 40 years ago or the highly diversified urban community of today, Schaumburg Township's motto of ''A History of Service...A Commitment to the Future'' certainly applies to the officials, employees and volunteers.
