This is the time of the election cycle that pay raises come before county boards for discussion.
In Will County, proposals to raise the county board and the countywide officials were advanced by the at-large elected County Board Chairman’s Chief of Staff.
The County Board has shot down his suggestions. (From the article in the Suburban Life, I see the head of the legislative branch is called the “Speaker.”)
In McHenry County salary hikes don’t seem to have surfaced in any committee.
