Algonquin Township Trustee Larry Emery wrote the following about Algonquin Township’s Annual Meeting.
As far as I have seen, there has been no article about the seventeen annual town township meetings.
Algonquin Township Budget and Town Hall meetings 2015 April 18, 2015
The 2015/16 budget funds hearings for the Algonquin Township of McHenry County Illinois was held on 4/8/15. The board reviewed and approved the budgets for the Town, General Assistance, Road & Bridge, and Equipment & Building.
The board members have been working and discussing plans of the budget with the Supervisor, Assessor, Clerk, and Road Commissioner over the last two months to come up with the final budget with 2nd year in a row of reduced or flat budgets.
We will be working on a future analysis of actual expenses by 5 year trend and eventual comparisons to like townships, other similar public entities, and relational private sector line items. Recap of budget financial total comparisons for the last two years versus previous year are:
Road Commissioner Bob Miller has noted in the past that the district’s useable budget for the coming fiscal year is about $1.2 million less than reported due to State Motor Fuel Tax money collected and then distributed to the Township’s various municipalities.
The board will continue discussion and actions for the year to continue review, monitoring, and establishing key indicators on line items to help continue efficient and fair use of our resources provided by our taxpayers in accordance to responsibilities.
Also, here is quick note on the 166th annual Algonquin Township Town Hall (since the meeting went so very quick).
It was held Tuesday April 14th, 2015 at 7 pm at the township business meeting room. After going thru the agenda required clerical items, we arrived at audience participation.
There was none. Is no news, good news?
Was there any concern about expenses and services?
Was there any concern about the Citizens for Township Consolidation?
No indication given.
So, as a trustee, I will continue asking a cross-section of constituents around the whole township and ask for input.
