There is more to a town government than administering road maintenance, collecting taxes, passing laws, etc. A town consists of people and part of a town government’s responsibility is to provide assistance where there is a known need. The Town of Cicero is proud to provide two advocate services, one for seniors and one for veterans. We hope you find these services useful to you or your family.
