New Lenox is a village in Will County, Illinois, United States. The population was 17,771 at the 2000 census, and estimated to be 23,197 as of 2005.

What is now the Village of New Lenox was first settled in the late 1820s, in the area of Gougar crossing ( Route 30 and Gougar Road ) and it was called VanHorne Point. New Lenox Township was established when Will County was created in 1852 with the building of the Rock Island Railroad between Chicago and Rock Island, Illinois.

Originally named Tracey in honor of the general superintendent of the Rock Island Railroad. Mr. Tracy later requested that the community be renamed. The first supervisor of the Rock Island Railway for New Lenox Township, John Van Duser, named the Township New Lenox from the town of Lenox, New York, which was Van Duser's home town. In 1863 the name for the new settlement officially became New Lenox after the Township.

The Village of New Lenox wasn't officially created until October 4, 1946. In 1945 and 46 community leaders, F. Carlton Cole, Walter Baers and others reasoned that the community should be incorporated. Recognizing the benefits and the potential growth of the area, a community vote in the spring of 1946 resulted in the authorization for the creation of the Village of New Lenox.

On October 4, 1946, the State of Illinois officially certified that the Village of New Lenox was legally organized and incorporated as a Village in the State of Illinois.

The Village operates under the Village form of local government. The Council-Trustees/Mayor form of government is followed and utilizes a Village Administrator to perform chief administrative duties. The current mayor is Tim Baldermann and the current Village Administrator is Russell Loebe. The six member Board of Trustees and Mayor are elected in an election at large on a four-year staggered basis, with the Mayor elected to that specific office by the voters. The New Lenox Village Hall.

The Village Board of Trustees is responsible for setting Village Policy, enacting ordinances and resolutions for the proper governing of the Village, as well as for overseeing the proper planning of the Village. The Village Clerk is an appointed position and is responsible for the proper keeping of all official documents of the Village. As well, the position is the Local Election Official, and is responsible for in-person absentee voting, as well as the duties of setting the ballot for all local elections. As Chief Administrative officer, the Village Administrator is responsible for the enforcement of all Village Codes and Ordinances, as well as recommending employee hiring to the Mayor and Board of Trustees. The Village Administrator also supervises all Village departmental operations.

In 2007, the Village governmental operations were move to the new New Lenox Village Hall at 1 Veterans Parkway. Upon occupying this new building of approximately 65,000 square feet (6,000 m2), the old Village Hall which was approximately 14,000 square feet (1,300 m2) was taken over by the New Lenox Police Department[2]. The main level of the building which formerly housed the Village operations was remodeled for police use.
