For the second month in a row, the McHenry County College Board failed to muster a majority vote to raise the salaries of college administrators.
Last month, there was a 3-3 tie on a motion to raise salaries 2.82%.
Thursday night, a motion was made to increase salaries across the board by 2.75%.
After a discussion of how a merit pay plan might work, a motion was made to give an equal raises to all administrators with President Vicky Smith promising to work on a merit pay system this fall.
That motion garnered three votes: Cynthia Kisser, Mary Miller and Molly Walsh.
Voting against the motion were Chris Jenner, Linda Liddell, Ron Parrish and Tom Wilbeck.
Another attempt will be made with a different proposal next month.
