County Board Speaker Herbert Brooks, Jr. welcomes you...

As Speaker of the Will County Board, I invite you to participate in building a great future for our county.   This website is provided by your county board as a way to help citizens stay informed about decisions we are making.   Please use this information and the communication tools you find here to participate in the work of the county board.  Let us know what you think and how you think we should vote.

Will County is one of the nation's fastest growing counties.  With growth comes challenges.  The decisions we make today about holding the line on spending, increasing economic development to help support our schools and putting into place good transportation infrastructure will have lasting consequences.

We are working hard to make this county a better home for everyone.

Herbert Brooks, Jr.
Will County Board
