Highly Paid McHenry County Employees – Acevedo to Ciesielczyk

A law recently went into effect which requires County governments to list highly paid employees.

I asked for the list from McHenry County and here’s what I received:

McHenry County Government Center

Salary Compensation Report Pursuant to Section 120/7.3 of the Open Meetings Act

For Fiscal Year 2011-2012 (as of 1/1/12)

In accordance with PA 97-609, and certain requirements within this act, a government entity is required to list on its website the total compensation package for every IMRF covered employee earning a total compensation package in excess of $75,000.

Salary and benefit information for IMRF employees are for salaries on FY 2011-2012 as it represents numbers that are projected to be earned at the completion of the fiscal year. Numbers do not become actual until the completion of the fiscal year.

This information is offered to provide transparency on projected costs.

Here’s page one of six.  (The list is in alphabetical order and the information is in this order: NAME, JOB TITLE, SALARY
HLTH INS* [* Statute requires only monies paid directly to the employee i.e.: insurance "opt-out" and HRA/HAS stipend], SICK DAYS. VACATION DAYS, VEHICLE, STIPEND, CLOTHING, TOTAL.)

Highly Paid McHenry County Employees – Acevedo to Ciesielczyk — 5 Comments

  1. How many of these people have relatives that work in the county or have previously worked there??

  2. @ Jim –

    The County Administrator is like the CEO of a company.

    His duties are not “fluff” and being paid $160K in comparison to what is paid in the private sector is peanuts.

    The anti-government brigade out there really needs to be better informed and quit shooting from the hip as is their want.

  3. I can’t help but laugh at the accumulated sick days.

    How did this policy ever get started in the work forces today?

    All public employees seem to have this “benefit”, but I wonder about workers in “real life jobs?”

    I know I never had this when I worked in the private sector.

  4. Look at all the Nygren lackies living it up on our dime. I hope to God a special prosecutor is appointed. That place needs an overhaul.
