When I discovered the proposed contractfor McHenry County Correctional Officers, I asked for cost information.
It arrive yesterday afternoon and I share it with you below:
In response to your FOIA request, the current annual salary cost for Unit II Corrections is $10,539,131.20.
The recently approved contract with the Fraternal Order of Police for Unit II Corrections provides for a 12/1/11 salary increase of 2% and subsequent salary increases of 2.75% in FY ’13 and 3% in FY’14.
Salary growth of the three year contact can be calculated multiplying the annual increases using the base salary amount.

Compensation time accruals and sick leave policy changes favorable to the County were also a negotiated part of the contract.
