Algonquin Township’s top elected officials decided to ask for 2% raises each year for the next four years.
The salaries would have looked like the following, had the proposal passed:
While advanced by Township Trustee Dan Shea, fellow Fox River Grove Township Trustee Lowell Cutsforth amended the motion to freeze the salaries for two years, followed by two years of 2% increases.
That motion ended up passing 4-1.
The newest member of the Board, Russell Cardelli, wanted to freeze the salaries for the entire four years, as McHenry Township proposes.
His was the only “No” vote on the amended salary resolution.
