Township elimination

To the Editor:

I applaud the Northwest Herald for taking an editorial stand on the elimination of the township form of government.

A good example of the redundancy and subsequent cost of multiple levels of government is Country Club Road from Woodstock to Crystal Lake.

The city of Woodstock, Dorr Township, the village of Bull Valley and, finally, McHenry County have responsibility for sections of that road.

Enough said.
