McHenry County 2013 budget enters final stretch
WOODSTOCK – The McHenry County Board is on track to put its 2013 budget on public display next month, most likely without the levy increase it is entitled to under the tax cap.
But some board members have questioned potential spending increases and an average 2.5 percent merit-based wage increase for nonunion staff that a majority approved in July.
County staff gave the board an update Tuesday morning on development of next year’s budget. County Administrator Peter Austin said board members would get a copy of next year’s spending plan at its Oct. 16 meeting. He also estimated that a list of supplemental expenses – just under $500,000 left over to fund other needs – could go before the board in two weeks.
