Township recently met with
members of the Cook County Planning and Development Department.
They called the
meeting to discuss the flooding issues in Maine Township and to investigate what
assistance the County could provide in flood mitigation.

Teschky, Office of Emergency Management Director Robert Cohen, Highway Commissioner Robert Provenzano, Director of Cook County Planning & Development Michael Jasso, Deputy Director of Planning & Development Jane Hornstein, and Deputy Director of Planning & Development Dominic Tocci.
“We are being very proactive in seeking solutions to the range of flooding concerns throughout Maine Township,” says Teschky. “The solutions are costly and must involve multiple agencies at the local, county and even state levels. We will not stop until flooding is no longer a problem in our area.”
