Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant Will County Executive

I am honored to serve as your Will County Executive. As a lifelong resident of this great county, I have witnessed many changes as we have evolved from an ag-community to a major hub in the global distribution market.  I am dedicated to building upon this status but I am equally dedicated to maintaining the quality of life for the nearly 700,000 residents and thousands of businesses and organizations that call Will County home. 

Please explore our website which is filled with important information about services and departments within the County Executive office as well as connections to other county officials’ websites.

Will County is diverse, vibrant, and filled with hard-working people. We have room to grow and we look forward to a great future.

Workforce Services’ Clothes Closet Needs Refilling

“Helping each other is what good neighbors do,” said Will County Executive Larry Walsh. “And Will County residents are especially good about helping out wherever they can. Now is a time when many people are going through their closets as part of spring cleaning. Hopefully, they’ll remember Clothes4Work if they have suitable attire that they no longer want.”
Currently, the clothes closet is in need of the following items: 

For women, black and gray dress pants and dress blouses, both long- and short-sleeved, in basic colors;
For men, long- or short-sleeved button-down dress shirts, especially white, dress shoes and belts. 

WSD Administrative Manager Susan Flessner said about 15 to 20 people visit the clothes closet each month. Most are looking for something to wear to interviews, but some also need something to wear for a new job. The clothes are at no cost to those who need them. No appointments are necessary to visit the clothes closet. It is available during regular working hours, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, except holidays. Flessner said donations can be brought to the WSD offices on the fourth floor of the JJC City Center Campus building at 214 N. Ottawa St. She said pickup can be arranged at an office or business which holds a clothing drive for the closet. Call (815) 723-3870 with questions about Clothes4Work.
