One of the items decided by the McHenry County College board on Thursday night was the salary for President Vicky Smith from July 2013 through June 2014.
You may remember how the old Board wanted to make the decision before three of its members (two having been defeated at the polls) went out of office.
Although incoming members and audience members made impassioned pleas for no decision on Smith’s contract be made until the new Trustees were sworn in, that was ignored.
The level of salary, however, was delayed because the report the Board was being asked to approve had no numbers in it.
Now, about five months later, after an hour secret meeting, Smith was given a 3% raise.
The vote was 5-2 with Mary Miller and Linda Liddell voting in the negative.
And the envelope, please.
