No way to know if the Northwest Herald’s poll on Wednesday is representative or not–or even how many people took part, but the results were not the pro-rapid growth forces in McHenry County would have wanted.
The question was
Should the McHenry County Board move forward with funding for the Randall Road Expansion project?
- No – 65%
- Yes – 35%
Note that the question does not talk about improving the intersection of Algonquin and Randall Roads.
The County Board will hold a Committee of the Whole meeting on Friday morning to consider the issue.
If the County Board decided to spend the RTA Sales Tax on the Sheriff’s Department, instead of widening roads like Randall Road, the property tax burden could be lowered $10.4 million.
