The City of Evanston is also a Township. Evanston Township has the same boundaries as the City of Evanston. During the governmental history of Evanston, the area was once part of Ridgeville Township.
The Town of Evanston is a coterminous Township whose borders fall inside of the City of Evanston boundaries. Although the Township, the Library Board, and the School District borders fall within the boundaries of the City of Evanston, these governmental entites all have separate levies and budgets. The finances that the Township receives are meant to specifically administer the General Assistance Program, the Township Supervisor's Office and the Township Assessor's Office.
The goal of the Township of Evanston is to provide extensive case management skills that may enable one to overcome life barriers in order to achieve self-sufficiency. The goal may be accomplished through various programs offered by the Township to relieve uncontrollable threatened circumstances of one's basic life needs.
Once Evanston became incorporated as a village and then a city, many of the township’s responsibilities were eliminated. Today, the city has absorbed most of the township’s functions. The township has two elected officials who serve part-time.
