County Board to vote Thursday on new committees
WOODSTOCK – The McHenry County Board will vote Thursday to approve a new committee structure reflecting its large number of new members.
The structure up for approval makes significant changes to the membership of standing committees, in which much of the board’s work gets done. Nine new members – the largest freshman class in at least 20 years – were sworn in last month. All 24 seats on the County Board were up for election because of redistricting after the 2010 U.S. Census.
Besides new blood, new leadership is playing a factor in the shakeup – the new County Board replaced four-term Chairman Ken Koehler, R-Crystal Lake, with new Chairwoman Tina Hill, R-Woodstock. The chairman after each election appoints a Committee on Committees to adjust memberships.
