In an effort to reduce the adult mosquito population in Cuba Township, your Elected Officials have opted to do a one-time spray for adult mosquitos in the unincorporated Cuba Township areas on the evening of Friday, July 13th (weather permitting). This spray will be done in conjunction with the following municipalities’ regularly scheduled applications: Lake Barrington, North Barrington, Tower Lakes.
Cuba Township historically has only used this adult mosquito control method when a breed of known, disease – carrying mosquitos have been identified in our Township. While this is NOT the case currently (no disease-carrying mosquitos have been identified as of July 9), we are working proactively to alleviate the unusually large numbers which have occurred due to the record rainfalls this summer. Please keep in mind that this method does not control all mosquitos and that our regularly contracted mosquito monitoring and larvicide application program continues to be the most effective measure of mosquito control.
Any Cuba Township resident may register to be notified prior to municipality (Lake Barrington, North Barrington and Tower Lakes) or Township adult mosquito control applications in their area by emailing their full name, full home address and telephone number to email@example.com or calling the mosquito hotline at (800) 942-2555. Clarke will place the residents on the proper Township or Village route and get them notified the day of application.
If you have additional concerns or questions, please feel free to contact our office directly (847) 381-1924 x1 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org
To help create and maintain a high quality of life for Cuba Township residents, while providing Township services such as Road Maintenance, General Assistance, Property Assessment, Voter Registration and Early Voting, in a fiscally responsible manner.
Townships are the oldest form of local government in the country. Brought by settlers from New England, townships were established in Illinois in 1850 to accommodate the needs of their local communities before municipalities were formed and a trip to the county seat meant spending the entire day on horseback.
Cuba Township was established in 1850 at 28160 W. Cuba Road, Barrington, on property owned by the Township and now known as The Grove. This white farmhouse now houses the office of the Cuba Township Road District and is the site of the annual Fall Festival. Cuba Township was originally named Troy Township. When it was discovered that another township in southern Illinois had already chosen that name, “Cuba” was chosen to show solidarity for the citizens in that country enduring an insurrection. The Township encompasses all or part of 8 municipalities, lies in the extreme southwest corner of Lake County, and covers 24 square miles and has 16,800 residents.. There are 18 townships in Lake County.
Illinois townships are mandated to provide 3 services- property assessment, assistance to the needy and road maintenance. Other services, as permissible by law have been added through the years.
