If you owe Circuit Clerk Kathy Keefe money, your next call could be from the new bill collector.
STATE’S ATTORNEY’S PURSUIT OF SCOFFLAWS TO HELP AID BUDGET DEFICIT
Louis A. Bianchi, McHenry County State’s Attorney, announces that, with the support of McHenry County Board Chairman, Ken Koehler, and McHenry County Circuit Clerk, Kathy M. Keefe, he has entered into a contract with Alliance One Receivable Management, Inc. to recover outstanding fines and fees owed by traffic and criminal offenders, due to McHenry County.
In light of ongoing pressures facing taxpayers and units of local government, the State’s Attorney is undertaking this collection program in order to ease that financial pressure by vigorously pursuing offenders who have outstanding fines to comply with their Court ordered payments.
In addition, there will be no costs to the taxpayers to institute this program since all costs of collection shall be attributed to the delinquent offender.
