Who would have thought the Finance and Administration Committee Meeting of the Village of Fox River Grove could be so newsworthy?
Fox River Grove Algonquin 4 Precinct Committeeman Andrew Gasser has a “News” button on his blog and, for those interested in what’s happening in Fox River Grove, it is rapidly becoming a primary source.
Today Gasser writes of a windfall of $190,000 received by Village government. For the source of the cash, you’ll have to go to his blog.
But Gasser does ask these questions, among others, about its disposition:
- Could it possibly help offset the looming property tax increase?
- Could it go into the underfunded police pension program?
How big is $190,000 to Fox River Grove?
Property taxes collected in McHenry County will be about $782,366 and Lake County’s 158,518.
So the $190,000 is more than the property taxes collected on homes and businesses in Lake County.
