Municipal elections were last spring. The next ones are not until next spring.
Perhaps that explains why the City of Crystal Lake decided to hike taxes so much this year–a non-election year.
There will go up 9.8%.
McHenry, on the other hand, is collecting about the same as last year.
Algonquin, Bull Valley, Fox River Grove, Greenwood, Port Barrington, Trout Valley and Woodstock are up under 1%.
