About us

Frank J. Mrvan, North Township Trustee / Wicker Memorial Park
Helping families. Strengthening communities.

We are a government agency serving the communities of East Chicago, Hammond, Highland, Munster and Whiting. North Township, located in Lake County, Indiana, is the second largest of the 1,008 townships in the state.

Our primary function is to provide Township Assistance to the less fortunate. We do this through an extensive application process making sure the right people are getting the assistance needed.

We also own and maintain The Hess Cemetery located in Hammond, Indiana. The North Township Trustee provides a free bus service, Dial-a-Ride, to all resident's living within the boundaries of the Township.

North Township owns and operates Wicker Memorial Park. Dedicated by President Calvin Coolidge on June 14, 1927 to the "doughboys" of World War 1, Wicker Memorial Park has become one of the most utilized parks in the Region.

With an 18 hole golf course, 3 miles of trails, volleyball courts, a dog run, playground, picnic areas, banquet facilities, and one of a kind Splash Pad, Wicker Memorial Park has something to offer for all ages!
