That’s a lot of money
The current issue of the McHenry Township newsletter states that 50% of the McHenry Township Road and Bridge levy is returned to incorporated municipalities.
The McHenry Township portion of The City of McHenry’s Equalized Assessed Value real estate tax base is $457,335,807.
The Road and Bridge levy is $.3506 per $100 of assessed value.
50% of that levy is $801,821.
Last year the City of McHenry received $308,557 from the township.
That’s short by $493,264.
Someone should ask the current Highway Commissioner where the missing $493,264 is, every year, year after year.
Almost a half a million dollars.
That’s a lot of money.
I’m supporting Steve Koerber for the position of McHenry Township Highway Commissioner and the other real Republicans on the ballot.
I look forward to hearing the confusing explanation of the missing $493,000.
The incumbents who did this are no longer Republicans.
Support the Republicans on the ballot.
