SPRINGFIELD - Deb Lane, multi-township assessor of Meriden/Ophir/Troy Grove Townships, LaSalle County, was unanimously re-elected to the board of directors of the Township Officials of Illinois (TOI). The election took place during the Association’s 105th Annual Educational Conference in Springfield Nov. 11-13.

The organization serves as an informational clearinghouse for member townships as well as members of the Illinois General Assembly, members of Congress, and federal and state agencies.
