Tonight Crystal Lake Grade School District 47 Board is meeting at 7 at Canterbury School southwest of the intersection of Main Street and Virginia Street Road to consider the contract worked out with its teachers’ union.
Another contract has also been settled: that between McHenry County College and its faculty union.
While District 47 posted its contract information (apparently some time this weekend), MCC refuses to do so before it is ratified by the junior college board on Thursday night.
I asked public relations person Christina Haggerty whether the contract had been posted and, if so, if she would send me a link.
There will be no chance for taxpayers to see the details until after one of the biggest expenditures is already approved.
“No- the Board votes on it this Thursday, after which point the contract when approved will be posted.”
I asked under whose authority it was not to be posted and have received no reply.
