Did Algonquin Township Board Reach Agreement with the Road District Last Night?

Algonquin Township Clerk Karen Lukasik was not sitting at the right of Supervisor Chuck Lutzow at Tuesday’s meeting.

That’s the question one astute observer asked today after watching the YouTube on the meeting.

The question seems to be whether the Algonquin Township Board followed Roberts Rules of Order.

The original motion was to approve the intergovernmental agreement.

But someone wanted to change it in a minor way.

The potential problem is that no one made a motion to amend the resolution.

On the Algonquin Township Highway Department Route 14 sign appears the message, “The Northworst Herald Is Fake News.”  About the same number of vehicles drive past the sign each day as are the reported number of subscribers to the Northwest Herald.

Consideration of the intergovernmental agreement was the sole reason for holding the meeting, but the Northwest Herald decided to headline one Mary Lu Seidel’s call for Road Commi9ssioner Andrew Gasser to resign.

Mary Lu Seidel

There is no indication that Seidel did not support Bob Miller in his re-election campaign.

Seidel is also not conversant with Illinois local law.

She referred to “recall” as a way to get rid of Gasser if he did not resign, as she requested.

Gasser did not attend the meeting.

His signature on the document is required for it go into effect.

In other news, Algonquin Township Clerk Karen Lukasik decided to re-instate her office’s posting of videos on the internet.

She is running the camera herself, which means, she will not be in the images.

The sound is good.

After the meeting was adjourned, Dave Chapman was heard to say, “We did something good.”

  1. NO, they did not.

    It was amended and now has to go back to the board for approval of those changes.

    Gasser has signed the final version and provided it to the Township for their approval.

    To bad the NWH reporter is so focused on casting negativity on Gasser instead of reporting the truth on what happens with the IGA.

  2. We have not abandoned anything.

    The bus will run and recycling will open.

    Crooked ed komenda and the northworst herald continue to get it wrong and instead of focusing on what all of us agreed to in principle decided to focus on the perceived drama.

    While some of us may disagree on tactics and strategery the supervisor, trustees and I want to the township to succeed.

    We have a long way to go but the IGA is a great step. We all worked hard to make it happen. Staff (Pam Gavers and Ryan Provenzano) did a great job.

    FANTASTIC.

    Communication between the elected folks, from my personal perspective was good.

    Meanwhile, crooked ed komenda FOIA’d me all email communication between Mary Lu Seidel and myself before the meeting. Crooked ed komenda had his story for today written before the meeting ever took place.

    Sad.

    I’ll post his FOIA emails from now on. He is not for a better township or community but for newspaper sales.

  4. Having a well known Democrat come in and ask for a Republican to resign is not exactly news.

  5. Once again it doesn’t take much of a distraction from Trustee Victor to derail the process.

    I wish this board would seek guidance on how to run a meeting.

    I’ve seen better by a student council in a school cafeteria.

    I completely agree that the NWH dropped the ball again, in lieu of another personal attack on the Road Commissioner.

    That’s shameful, and doesn’t serve our community.

    Equally shameful however, are the insults here on Ms. Seidel’s appearance.

    I don’t agree with one word she said, and there is plenty there to criticize without going that low.

    Personal insults of that type say more about the character of the shooter, than the target.

  6. Crooked Ed, Fake news, what’s next a spray on tan and a bad comb-over?

  7. Eddie Komenda makes up quotes! He did it to me.

    He can’t handle his little job and has zero credibility.

  8. Ms Seidel’s comment is a real stretch to call Gassers post racists.

    It may be in bad taste but not racists.

    It appears racism is the latest catch all.

  9. Thank You Cal. I believe you took appropriate action in this case.

  10. Ah, the new McHenry County ethos.

    Pointing out conventionality attractive woman = sexist and demeaning.

    Slovenly and unkept woman = stunning and brave.
