If I am a non-resident homeowner, what phone should be listed in the notification database?

For non-residents or owners who reside out of our Township Highway Department, you may provide an additional phone number to be included in our database to contact during certain situations. In general, calls are sent to the primary number only, but we also have the ability to call multiple numbers for each residence or business when requested by the resident or business. Please contact us at 847-244-1101, ext. *301 to provide us with that information.
