A press release about the call for special McHenry County Board meetings by Republican County Board members:
Special Meetings, McHenry County Board
Two Special Meetings of the McHenry County Board have been called by Republican members for Wednesday, August 23, 2017.
The first meeting will begin promptly at 7:00 p.m. in the Board Meeting Room at 667 Ware Road, Woodstock, and will address the issue of recent patronage hirings.
At a time when the County Board has been working to reduce expenses, these hirings – unauthorized by the Board – have more than doubled the budget of the Chairman.
The second meeting, which will commence immediately upon completion of the first, will address the possible lease or sale of Valley Hi Nursing Home without County Board input.
These are open meetings and the public is encouraged to attend and give comments during the “Public Comments” portion of the Agenda.
