McHenry County Board forwards waiver to HUD
WOODSTOCK – It’s now up to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development whether granting funding to a senior housing project led by McHenry County Board Chairman Ken Koehler’s son constitutes a conflict of interest.
The County Board on Tuesday evening voted, 17-5, to forward the request for a conflict-of-interest waiver regarding the McHenry County Attainable Housing Corp. to HUD. The agency will determine whether the fact that Kris Koehler serves as the corporation’s executive director is a barrier to accessing federal funding for affordable housing.
The corporation is designated as a community housing development organization – such organizations, through the County Board, can get access to HUD funding doled out to counties. Its plans call for building a 70-unit senior housing facility on the corner of Pearl Street and Route 31 in McHenry, across from St. Mary Catholic Church.
