Algonquin Township Road District Still Seeking $47,381.84 from Former Highway Commissioner Bob Miller

The quest continues seeking repayment of $47,381.84 in sick pay approved to be paid by the Algonquin Township Board almost four years ago after incumbent Bob Miller lost the Republican Primary Election to Andrew Gasser.

Now a summary judgement is sought by Road District Attorney Robert Hanlon.

At issue is that the $47,000 deferred sick time payment was made from Road District funds, while elected officials’ compensation comes from the Town Fund, a separate unit of local government under state law.

Miller’s attorney Thomas Gooch stated in a July 9, 2020, filing that the Township Board is willing to “consummate a settlement on the previously outlined positions,” which seems to mean that the Town Fund would pay the Road Fund the money requested.

Also revealed in the July document is that Hanlon asked for a “criminal investigation” by the U.S. Attorney’s Office:

McHenry County State’s Attorney Patrick Kenneally refused to pursue criminal charges in May of 2018.

Hanlon asks for a hearing on February 19th before Judge Thomas Meyer.

  1. Let me get this straight.

    We payed attorney fees to sue Bob Miller and get a settlement where we pay ourselves?

  2. Funny how the guy who “authorized” it was long dead so there goes your potential witness.

    You probably should just write this one off as a bad mistake/nightmare and make sure the family never gets back in charge again there.

    No more company credit cards being used at Hooters or shopping sprees from a Northwest Chicago computer.

  3. Dummy Pokorny, yeah.

    That’s what townships are all about.

    Screwing the taxpayer.

  4. Wasnt Robert Miller supposed to be deposed?

    How about the Township attorney?

    A suggested “criminal investigation” (by Feds, no locals) has the potential to shine the cleansing light of day on schemes that are politically inbred.

    Keep an eye on this one.
