McHenry Co. (ECWd) –
The Appellate Court of the Second District has handed down their order in the McHenry County Road District case. The Road District brought suit against the Township Board members and Clerk after the Board reduced the tax levy submitted by the Road District Highway Commissioner. The Board reduced the levy by $905,000.00. The goal of the lawsuit was to obtain a Temporary Restraining Oder and require the board to certify the levy submitted by the Road District.
The court ruled in favor of the township board members and the Clerk and denied the relief being asked for by the Road District. That ruling equates to a $905,000.00 savings to the taxpayers of McHenry County.
