The big news out of the McHenry County College Board room Thursday night was the passage of a budget based on the assumption that the levy would be flat.
With two Trustees absent, the vote was 3-2.
All three of the votes to restrain taxes
were from the newly-elected Trustees:
- Chris Jenner
- Molly Walsh
- Tom Wilbeck
The votes against a flat budget were cast by
- Linda Liddell
Student Trustee Michele Lambert also voted for higher taxes, but while her vote is recorded, it does not really count.
Ron Parrish and Mary Miller were absent. Parrish would probably have voted for the flat budget; Miller would not have.
