Salary and Fringe Benefits for McHenry County Officials Elected Next Year

Here are 22 of 24 McHenry County Board serving from 2010-12. . Cll other County Board members are up for election in 2012 because of re-apportionment.

Here’s what McHenry County Board members will have before them about salaries that they or their successors will earn starting after next fall’s elections:

A resolution calls for “compensation beginning December 2012 and fringe benefit options are hereby approved for the Chairman and Members of the McHenry County Board:

  1. Chairman of the Board: The Chairman of the Board will receive an annual salary of $82,200 for FY2013 and FY2014.
  2.  Vice-Chairman of the Board: The Vice-Chairman will receive $5,000 per year more than Board Members.
  3.  Members of the Board: The Members of the Board will receive an annual salary of $21,500 for FY2013 and FY2014.
  4.  Fringe Benefits: The Chairman and Members of the Board may choose to participate in any or all of the benefit programs made available, now or in the future, to all County employees including, but not limited to health, dental and vision plans subject to the same rates, benefit levels, rules and regulations established for all County employees.

And about future raises, here is what is proposed:

“the Chairman and Members of the County Board shall receive an annual increase for FY2015 through FY2021 based on the Consumer Price Index (CPI), as provided by the Bureau of Labor Statistics for the Chicago-Gary-Kenosha labor market, or the same pay rate increase provided to non-union employees, or 5%, whichever is less.”

And, a slap at those county board members who do not live in the Woodstock area:

They “shall not accept mileage reimbursement attending County Board Meetings or County Board Committee meetings.”

That, of course, means that those who live closest to the courthouse will have higher compensation than those living in McHenry, Crystal Lake, Cary, Fox River Grove, Algonquin, Huntley, and other outlying areas.

And here are the salaries proposed for the countywide elected officials up this year (except for the State’s Attorney and Regional Superintendent of Schools, which are set by state stature):

Salary and Fringe Benefits for McHenry County Officials Elected Next Year — 3 Comments

  1. Interesting…. and you might say, self-serving! Now or in the future??? Nice way to take care of yourself.

    The Chairman and Members of the Board may choose to participate in any or all of the benefit programs made available, now or in the future, to all County employees including, but not limited to health, dental and vision plans subject to the same rates, benefit levels, rules and regulations established for all County employees

  2. Why not allow the taxpayers to vote for the benefits & compensations packages; we are the employers aren’t we?

    This is like me telling my employer that I am going to be overpaid and they will continue to pay a good portion of my benefits for the rest of my life for working a couple of years and there is nothing they can do about it!

    What a joke!!!
