Letter: Government cooperation

To the Editor:

Thank you to the Northwest Herald for bringing forward a local government story that, at first read, is only about paving a road, and that occurs too often in Illinois to be news.

This paving project is different and worth the notice. It was about intergovernmental cooperation, a theme regularly championed from the statehouse to village halls.

A road project that is undertaken through the share cooperation of process and funding to benefit the residents of two municipalities – Algonquin and Barrington Hills. Yes, there was paperwork, public meetings and staff work, but all working together without duplication.

Like those New Year’s resolutions, it’s the gain that should keep us going.
