For example, in fiscal 2016, which ended March 31, the township spent $752,060 on “Administration”.
But they’re budgeting $1,448,300 for Fiscal Year 2017.
That’s twice as much as what was spent last year.
200% of what they spent in the fiscal year just ended!
The Assessor spend $706,327 in fiscal 2016.
But his budget for fiscal 2017 is $855,605.
That’s 121% of what was spent in the fiscal year just ended.
Below are some of the line items with the biggest increases:
That’s $412,700 right there.
Total expenditures in the last fiscal year was $1.4 million.
The proposed Town Fund budget for FY 2017 is $2.4 million.

The Township Board will vote on what will be levied for next year’s taxes on Wednesday night at the Township Hall (back bottom room on the east side) on Wednesday, April 13th, at a meeting starting at 6:45 PM.
That is the same time as the Republican and Democratic Party Conventions, so Precinct Committeeman won’t be there.
It will be up to regular taxpayers to attend, sign up for public comment and tell the Trustees, Supervisor and Road Commissioner what they desire them to do with regard to the taxes that will be collected in the spring of 2017.
The Township Hall is located at 3702 US Highway 14, Crystal Lake. That’s east of the railroad overpass almost to Cary.
