Algonquin Township Trustee Rachael Lawrence has tried and failed to gain approval of a referendum to abolish the Algonquin Township Road District.
The function would still remain, but the Highway Department would be put under the Township Board.
Instead of one election official being in virtual total control, there would be five elected officials, four Trustees and the Supervisor, in charge of the operation.
The monthly meeting was scheduled for tonight, but “security concerns” has prompted a rescheduling until next Wednesday night.
Trustee David Chapman has confirmed that he will second Rachael Lawrence’s motion.
Lawrence writes that she proposes the referendum be held at the 2020 gemeral election.
