McHenry County Board Chairman Jack Franks has his people at the County Fair pushing a petition to rebate half of the $40 million sitting in the Valley Hi Nursing Home Fund.
Why only half when the nursing home pretty much breaks even with an annual budget of $10-11 million a year?
Why even have a tax for Valley Hi?
A real “tax fighter” would be arguing for both a rebate higher than $20 million and an abolition of the taxing authority.
But, that’s not Jack Franks’ position.
There was $39,867,490.69 in the Valley Hi accounts this morning, according to County Treasurer Glenda Miller.
