Called on an emergency basis by Grafton Township Supervisor Linda Moore, the topic will be finances.
Here’s the agenda:
On February 14th, the board directed the Supervisor to pay $300,000 to the Road District. The Highway Commissioner has recently requested that the Supervisor sign a promissory note for $115,000, which the board has not approved. With the $300,000 payment, the current account balance is negative ($113,866.30). Even with board approval of this promissory note, the board needs to take action today or risk employing
staff we cannot pay and the consequences that would result from this situation.
For these reasons, Supervisor Moore has called an Emergency Grafton Township Board Meeting, 6:00 pm at the Grafton Township Hall.
A. Call the meeting to order.
B. Roll call.
C. Pledge of Allegiance
D. Public Comments
E. Discussion and Action to approve and execute a Road District Promissory Note.
F. Discussion and action to alleviate lack of funds for the township operations.
1. Cancel all transportation service due to lack of funding and redirect all riders to outside services and appeal to the Village of Huntley to pay to Grafton Township its $10,000 grant, now rather than waiting until June.
2. Immediately layoff the assessor’s staff, and supervisor’s staff, except for GA. The status of their health insurance will need to be researched.
3. Rescind the unfunded board action to pay the $300,000 to the Road District and operate on the funds that remain in the township account. In April, request the electors to extend the date to repay the $300,000.
4. The Road District loans the township additional funds.
5. Alternative action.
