Algonquin Township held its special meeting to pay three bills that were not included in Highway Department bills. The bills were posted online on the official Algonquin Township Highway Department website financial information page.
Supervisor Lutzow opened the bills up for discussion by the trustees but hearing none discussion was closed. The vote was unanimous with trustees Lawrence, Shea, and Victor voting YES along with Algonquin Township Supervisor Lutzow also voting in the affirmative.
