Up for election next spring, Algonquin Township Trustees want to get back in the newsletter business.
It’s free advertising like McHenry County Board Chairman Jack Franks used in his taxpayer-funded Covid-19 postcard.
Bids were solicited.
The prices for the 32,208 piece mailing range from $3,592 to $5,652 to $12,724.
Postage costs range from $5,743 to $9,639, depending on whether it is sent to specific address or every household. (The every household option appears cheaper.)
The August 1, 1999, newsletter is ironically headlined, “Saving Taxpayers $$.”
