Our view: Learn about executive referendum at forum
Arguably the toughest decision that McHenry County voters must face when they go to the polls Nov. 6 is how to vote on a referendum that, if approved, would fundamentally change the county’s form of government.
The referendum asks voters whether they want to create an executive form of government for the county.
Under the current form of county government, voters in six districts each elect four representatives to the McHenry County Board. Every two years, the 24 County Board members then select their chairman. The board also hires and fires a county administrator, who oversees the day-to-day operations of county government.
