708 Board Further Demonstrates Lack of Transparency in Refusal to Provide Legal Expenses in Searchable Format
For about a month I have been trying to obtain two years of legal expenses in a user-friend format for the McHenry County Mental Health Board (often called the “708 Board” because of the number of its authorization section in the State statutes).
First I was given a stack of paper about which I wrote here.
I asked for an electronic copy of the 17-page cover letter.
The purpose for the request was to be able to provide you with information that you could search on the internet.
What I got was a “locked” pdf format which cannot be copied line by line.
It can be copied only page by page.
Because of the refusal of the 708 Board to provide the information in a user-friendly format, while publicly proclaiming its dedication to transparency, I have decided to convey the information received.
Although I have appealed the refusal of the Mental Health Board to provide the information in a user-friendly format, I’m showing you the information below in the hope that someone will put in a spreadsheet and analyze what attorneys got how much for doing what.
