Algonquin Township Board asks to get sued again –
At this evening’s Algonquin Township Board Meeting (11-14-2018), the Board voted to refuse payment on some of the Road District’s bills, stating they would welcome another lawsuit for nonpayment because it would then “open the Road District up for discovery” in the future lawsuit.
Let me say that a different way: The Township voted to not pay legitimate bills in the hopes that they can get sued again, so they can expend more funds by paying the Township’s and Road District’s attorneys in a lawsuit over legitimate bills already incurred.
They can no longer legitimately argue about the costs of litigation, when they specifically invited another lawsuit.
I found it quite telling, that when a Trustee discussed something that might have painted the Road District Commissioner in a somewhat good light, it was met with a Motion to End Discussion.
