A McHenry County official has been quoted on TV as saying his pay raise is to high.
Before you conclude that the sky is falling, did you know there are two McHenry Counties?
But there really were nine local McHenry County board members who voted against the $100,000-plus salaries for countywide officials.
The North Dakota county board officials voted themselves a $50 a month raise—up 6%. They now make $822 per month.
The Illinois county board voted 4% per year raises in each of the next four years.
Of course, the base salary in Illinois is a lot, lot more than in North Dakota.
The North Dakota namesake has about 6,000 people.
