Welcome to the Land Use Department!

As a fairly new addition to the many fine departments of the county, we have adopted this goal as we serve the residents of Grundy County:

To promote a safe, healthy, balanced community that preserves our natural resources and educates our residents to continue this pursuit for future generations of Grundy residents.’

The Land Use Department has three offices to serve Grundy County’s needs. The Environmental & Resource Conservation Office, the Building and Zoning Office and the Planning Office are the fabric that makes up our Land Use Department.

Children's Used Book Collection June 20th through July 26, 2019

The Grundy County Land Use Department will be collecting used children’s books for Bernie’s Book Bank starting June 20th through July 26, 2019 at our Administration Building located at 1320 Union Street, Morris, IL 60450 from the hours of 8-4:30 pm Monday through Friday.

Practicing one of the four Rs is reuse. Children’s books that are no longer being used can find their way into the hands of a child who is need of a book. Studies have shown that reading is the most important skill a child needs to learn. However, studies also show that 61% of low-income families don’t have any children’s book for their families.

Bernie’s Book Bank is able to provide books to 360,000 children annually.

Since 2009, Bernie’s Book Bank has distributed 15,248,633 books. Bernie’s Book Bank will provides at least 12 books per year for each child that they serve.

For Grundy County our goal is 1500 books again this year!

Please help this worthy cause by donating children’s books from preschool through 6th grade.

We do ask that you do not give text books or workbooks.

If you should have any questions please feel free to contact Cheryl Wardell at (815) 941-3228 (cwardell@grundyco.org) or Heidi Miller at (815) 941-3229 (hmiller@grundyco.org).

Thank you Grundy County for your great partnership!
