Highly Paid McHenry County Employees – From Pechous to Umbenhower

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 five 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.)

The colors are lowered at the end of the day at the McHenry County Courthouse

Highly Paid McHenry County Employees – From Pechous to Umbenhower — 3 Comments

  1. It looks like the salaries paid to its employees should not embarrass our county. Municipalities always like to say they need to be competitive on salaries and want to pay above the average to keep the good employees.

    Sound like a vicious circle to me with the only winner being the employees as you can see on the above list of salaries

  2. What you don’t do here is SUBTRACT what comes out if that annual salary…

    1. Union dues

    2. Health insurance premiums

    3. MANDATORY RETIREMENT DEDUCTION OF 7.5%

    Trust me, that is a large chunk of money.

    These men and women worked hard to get to their positions.

    Many of the Corrections Officers and Sergeants have been there for 20+ years.

    They have done full body cavity searches, been screamed at, had fecal matter thrown at them, been bitten by drunks and addicts and the jail never closes.

    They have worked days, afternoons and overnights.

    Christmas, children birthdays, it doesn’t matter, they still report to work so that the deviants and criminal of this county remain behind bars for OUR safety.

    There is nothing shameful about these salaries!
