County Board committee to discuss chairman election
WOODSTOCK – A McHenry County Board committee on Monday will discuss whether voters should decide whether they want to directly elect the County Board chairman.
If committee members decide it should go to referendum, they have some choices to make, which are further complicated by ambiguities in state law. And if they decide a referendum should go on the April 9 ballot, they very likely will have to move it forward that day.
The full County Board meets Tuesday evening, which is its last meeting, barring any special ones, before the Jan. 22 deadline to put a referendum to voters in April.
