At the McHenry Township Board Thursday night, Township Trustee Bob Anderson is asking that five items be placed on the Board’s October meeting agenda.
This past session a bill was passed that will allow voters to eliminate the office of Township Road Commissioner.
Anderson wants to see a referendum to that effect on the ballot at the March Primary Election.
If it passes, McHenry Township Road Commissioner James Condon would remain in office until the end of his term.
Then, the Road District functions would come under the control of those elected to the next Township Board.
The second item would be setting salaries for the McHenry Township officials to be elected just under four years from now.
Traditionally, township boards set those salaries at pretty much the last time allowed by law.
Anderson is on record as saying township trustees should be paid nothing.
Thirdly, Anderson proposes that McHenry Township withdraw from the Township Officials of Illinois.
He bases his opposition to belonging to the organization because it lobbies the Illinois General Assembly.
Fourth on his list is spending McHenry Township taxpayer money to maintain subdivision parks.
Fifth is elimination of a similar subsidy of a subdivision building.
