CL Park District Has No Election Contest for Four-Year Terms, No Candidate for Two-Year Slot — 2 Comments

  1. The election is to be held Tuesday April 4, 2017, although there is no competition.

    The Crystal Lake Park Board of Commissioners consists of 7 members.

    Presumably one member is retiring from the board, opening the 2 year spot for which there is currently no candidate?

    The 2016 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) for the park district contains the following sentence:

    “The benefits, benefit levels, employee contributions and employer contributions are governed by the District and can be amended by the District through its personnel manual and union contracts.”

    What union contracts?

  2. The whole park district is a huge scam.

    It should completely fall into oblivion.

    All they do is up the fees to taxpayers that should own all of those properties in ‘their kingdom’.

    They will never be held accountable for anything.

    The courts will not touch them.

    They are running a fiefdom.

    I stay away from them like the toxic poison they are.
