Letter: What next for townships?

To the Editor:

I appreciated Colleen Szramek’s recent letter concerning consolidating the McHenry Township Road District with McHenry Township. I was unaware that a vote was taken at the town hall meeting to undertake a study to see if it was financially economical to eliminate the road district.

Now I hear the trustees are ignoring this vote and won’t even give it a second to bring it up for discussion.

What are you afraid of Mike, Stan, Bob, and Bill? That the facts won’t hold up under scrutiny? How will you run the highway department better than an engineer? Who will run for these positions now that you have gutted their pay?

These questions need to be answered here before this misinformation and foolishness spreads to other townships.
