Two Township Road District Commissioners cut the amount they levied against their property taxpayers this year.
They are Grafton Township Road Commissioner Tom Poznanski and Algonquin Township Road Commissioner Andrew Gasser.
The following Road Commissioners kept their tax levies constant:
- Coral Township Road Commissioner Donald Argall
- Greenwood Township Road Commissioner Don Goad
- McHenry Township Road Commissioner James Condon
- Nunda Township Road Commissioner Mike Lesperance
The eleven other Road Districts–Alden, Burton, Chemung, Dorr, Dunham, Hartland, Hebron, Marengo, Richmond, Riley and Seneca–raised the amount of real estate taxes requested.
The tax cuts in Algonquin and Grafton Townships, however, were enough to allow the total tax take of Road Districts to decrease a bit.
Of the $16.6 million that goes to Township Road Districts, $2.6 million goes to municipal governments.
More than one-third of Algonquin Township Road & Bridge Fund taxes go to village and city governments.
That’s half of the Road & Bridge Fund taxes paid in each municipality.
Here is how much each municipality in McHenry County will benefit each this year from township government, if all taxes are paid:
