South Rock Island Township Mission Statement

It is our mission to professionally, courteously, equitably and efficiently administer General Assistance, property assessment and other programs. We will properly maintain the Township Hall and property for the benefit of Township residents.

We will provide basic human needs to all people, with the respect, dignity and compassion they deserve, while on their way to self-sufficiency.

We are neighbors helping neighbors. Our mission allows us to apply tax dollars to fulfill our state mandates, as well as provide services, information and resources to assist and benefit our residents. Partnerships with individuals, organizations, schools, churches, and corporations help afford South Rock Island the opportunity to provide low cost services to residents in need while holding down expenditures.

Health, Welfare, and Safety: We will place a high value on the health, welfare and safety of our employees and the public.
