Algonquin Township Board & Clerk – “Budget Busters”
The 2017-2018 legal budget, before any amendment, totaled $25,000.00 for the Township, $18,000.00 for the Assessor, and $2,500.00 for the Clerk. Total Township legal budget, $45,500.00
It appears the Township Board paid little attention to their legal spending, much like they ignored Bob Millers spending. Legel expenditures prior to the amended budget we pointed out in this article, totaled $96,672.25 on legal bills.
How does one legally spend more than twice their budgeted amount?
The Clerk’s legal bills paid up to the point of the amended budget in January reflects $55,275.00 for legal expense and $351.08 for delinquency charges.
For the curious minds, that is 22.11 times the amount of her legal budget of $2,500.00
Nevermind, this is Algonquin Township where real laws have no meaning.
