Saturday I wrote an article entitled,
Charles and Raffel Roads Roundabout Proposal Comes Around Again, Despite Defeat in Committee Day after Election
I apparently misunderstood where the proposal to award $2,229,600 to Curran Contracting Company of
Crystal Lake was scheduled.
I thought it was coming back to the County Board’s Transportation Committee where it failed the first time around:
But I was wrong.
The measure is scheduled to come up at the County Board’s meeting tomorrow, completely bypassing the Transportation Committee.
Appearing on the agenda is something I have not seen previously:
What I have never seen is an agenda item labeled, “New and Unfinished Business.”
“New Business” I understand.
“Unfinished Business” is a mystery.
But I guess it is obvious that someone has decided to try an end run around the Transportation Committee majority which defeated the resolution to spend $2.2 million building a roundabout to accommodate the traffic generated by
- Woodstock North High School, built pretty much in the middle of no where on land owned by a former McHenry County Board member and
- a school bus barn built even farther in the middle of no where
When Tina Hill was Chairwoman of the County Board, she put a nomination of a 708 Mental Health Board member on the agenda with that person’s not having been approved by committee.
I guess County Board Chairman Joe Gottemoller has put this resolution calling for spending $2.2 million for a road project on tomorrow morning’s agenda.
