MCCD special meeting 
to get officials current

RINGWOOD – As nine freshmen of the McHenry County Board get situated, the conservation district is looking to catch them up at a special meeting Friday.

It will be an opportunity for the County Board and McHenry County Conservation District board to meet and discuss what’s new and what’s in the future, MCCD spokeswoman Wendy Kummerer said in an email.

The meeting will be at 8:30 a.m. Friday at the Lost Valley Visitor Center, Route 31 and Harts Road.

County Board members will be informed about recent district acquisitions, site openings, master plans and strategic initiatives, Kummerer said. 

One of the new County Board members, Carolyn Schofield, is that body’s liaison to the conservation district board. The MCCD board is appointed by the chairman of the County Board and then approved by the County Board.
