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.

Will County Executive’s office seeking nominations for Emergency Telephone System Board

Will County Executive Larry Walsh has announced his office is seeking nominations from the public at large to serve on the county’s Emergency Telephone System Board (ETSB). The 12-member board is comprised of representatives from county governmental agencies, representatives of the three Will County dispatch centers, and local fire and police agencies. One citizen at large also serves on this board.

The regular board meetings are held at 9:00 a.m. on the fourth Tuesday of even numbered months at the Will County Office Building, 302 N. Chicago Street, Joliet. In addition, there is usually another morning of committee meetings during the month of the full board meeting.

“This board plays an important role for public safety and first responders in Will County,” Walsh said. “As the board that oversees the support system for our three 911 dispatch centers, we need people who are community-minded with an interest in maintaining the public safety in our county. I encourage any resident who may be interested to apply for this position.”

The ETSB’s primary responsibility is overseeing the county’s 9-1-1 Emergency Telephone System which serves as a vital link between the residents and the numerous public safety agencies of Will County. This board manages the financial, personnel, and technology needs for the 9-1-1 administrative system. Each member of the board serves a three-year term.

Those interested in serving on the ETSB can apply online at www.willcountyillinois.com. Click on the County Executive page and select the Boards and Commissions section. Interested parties may also email an application letter and resume to countyexecutive@willcountyillinois.com, Attn. Robin Tyda.
