Constituent Survey

Hello Winfield Township Property Owner,

Below are two questions the board would like to survey its constituents on. Please note this vote is one per property.

If you have other members in your household that have opposing view please site that in the notes portion of this survey.

We appreciate your time and consideration in this process. Thank you!

Shall Winfield Township have a single waste hauling company for all residents of unincorporated areas of Winfield Township?

It has come to the board’s attention that we could benefit the township by having its own sheriff’s deputy. For this to happen a levy must be created to acquire a deputy. The cost for one deputy is estimated annually to be $120,000.00. This levy would only be for unincorporated parcels in Winfield Township to pay.  There is an estimate of 3100 unincorporated parcels in Winfield Township. That would mean $120,000.00 divided by 3100 is an estimate of $38.71 tax to the unincorporated parcels for a deputy to be in the Township.

Shall Winfield Township hire its own deputy to patrol the unincorporated areas of Winfield Township?

NOTICE: The Big Woods Cemetery walk scheduled for October 15th has been cancelled.

BIG WOODS CEMETERY, located on Eola Road just south of Butterfield Rd, is maintained by Winfield Township.

This historic cemetery is the resting place of Israel Warner, who joined the Revolutionary War at age 9 (1777) as a messenger boy and scout until the end of the War in 1783.   His father was Seth Warner, co-founder of the famous Green Mountain Boys, with Ethan Allen.  Seth is famous for his role in winning the Battle of Bennington, and a statue of him is located next to the monument to the Battle of Bennington.  In 1777, Israel Warner carried an important message from his father, a Colonel, to General Stark galloping at top speed during the Battle of Bennington.

Israel is buried at Big Woods Cemetery, along with his daughter, her husband, and two of her children, both boys and who both died in the Civil War.

We also have seven other veterans from the Civil War, one from the Black Hawk Indian War, two from World War I, and four from World War II.

Plots are available for purchase.  The price of an adult grave ranges from $1,200 to $1,350; the price of a cremation ranges from $800 to $950, and the price for an infant’s grave ranges from $375 to $450.
