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.
