The stated purpose of the Milton Township S.A.L.T. Council is to determine and meet the needs of senior citizens by reducing crime and abuse and enhancing safety through communication and education in cooperation with the Township, law enforcement, and other community agencies and organizations.

One of the signature programs of the S.A.L.T. Council is the annual Seniors Auto Inspection.  Held in October at Wheaton Fire Station 1 on Fapp Circle (the ring road behind Target and Kohls at Roosevelt and County Farm roads), volunteers from businesses, service organizations and the community check batteries, fluids, tires (even spare tires!) and much more.


We are grateful to the City of Wheaton Fire Department for the use of the station's indoor bays for a relatively warm and certainly dry place to conduct the inspections, to Renfro Auto Center for personnel, AAA Car Care Plus for products and personnel, and Autumn Leaves of Glen Ellyn provided cookies.

The Milton Township Seniors And Law-enforcement Together (S.A.L.T.) Council is a consortium of local law enforcement, fire protection, governmental and community agencies, as well as senior citizens, with a shared goal of improving the quality of life and home safety of older persons in their homes and in the community.


S.A.L.T. Council meetings include information from law enforcement officers, a report on current scams and frauds and helpful information brought by a monthly guest speaker. 


The Council meets the 2nd Monday of each month, 10:00am at St. Daniel the Prophet Catholic Church located at 101 W Loop Road, Wheaton (northwest quadrant of Butterfield Road and Naperville Road).  The building is fully accessible and the automatic doors and elevator make it easier to get to the second floor meeting room in the Education Wing (west end of the building).
