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.

WILL COUNTY – Will County Executive Larry Walsh and the acting Chief Judge David Carlson have announced the closure of most County buildings on Wednesday, Jan. 30, and they will reopen at 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 31.

“With the predicted record low temperatures, the acting Chief Judge and I have agreed it is wise to close most County buildings on Wednesday to ensure the safety of our employees and our residents” Walsh said.  “And we strongly encourage members of the public to stay home tomorrow unless it is absolutely necessary.” 

Per the Acting Chief Judge, cases that are scheduled to be heard on Wednesday, Jan. 30, and the morning of Thursday, Jan. 31,  will be heard at 1:00 p.m. in their respective courtrooms.

"The office closings will not affect our around-the-clock operations.  24/7 Agencies such as the Will County Sheriff’s Department, Laraway Communications Center 9-1-1 Dispatch, detention facilities, Sunny Hill Nursing Home, the Will County Coroner, and other functions deemed essential will remain fully staffed."
