After the election in November, the outgoing McHenry County Board managed to put a tax hike on the April election ballot.
But the panel with nine lame ducks couldn’t find time to put a referendum on the same ballot to allow people to decide whether they want to have a direct say in who will be the County Board Chairman starting in 2014.
Now, I see the Management Services Committee will have “discussion” on a “Countywide Elected Chair” on Monday (8:30 AM County Board Conference Room).
No resolution is being considered on this pretty much time when the Committee might make a recommendation.
I guess a member could move that a resolution be drafted by staff to be recommended for approval at the next County Board meeting.
