Why would the credit card of the Algonquin Township Hwy. Deptartment, in the name of Bob Miller, be used at a Hooters restaurant in Wisconsin to the tune of $181.22?
What public purpose is served for the taxpayers of Algonquin Township when their money is put into the business market of Brookfield, Wisconsin?
We welcome any explanation from the Township and the McHenry County State's Attorney regarding this matter to inlcude an explanation as to why this would not qulify as a missaplication of funds, a felony under the criminal code?
