The appointment of a deputy supervisor for the Algonquin Township board of trustees, which was tabled last week, will be up for consideration during Wednesday's board meeting.
After supervisor Charles Lutzow suffered a stroke earlier this month, a deputy supervisor was needed to perform ministerial duties, such as signing checks. Township attorney James Kelly had said in an email that it could be three months before Lutzow returns.
At a special meeting Wednesday, trustees Dan Shea, Dave Chapman and Rachael Lawrence voted to table a potential appointment so they could get a better idea on when Lutzow may be back.
Prior to the meeting, budget hearings will be held for the township and road district.
The hearings had been scheduled in May but Lutzow had said an administrative error left the township without confirmation that a public notice for the hearings was sent out 30 days ahead of the meeting as required by state statute.
Township revenues will increase by about $28,000 over last year while expenditures will decrease by about $2,300, according to the tentative budget. The end balance is estimated to be almost $776,000.
Total revenues for the road district are proposed to be $366,000 more than the fiscal 2019 budget, jumping from about $1.7 million to slightly more than $2.1 million. Including the road district’s existing fund balance, about $2.78 million will be available this fiscal year.
Road district expenditures total an estimated $2.4 million, about $200,000 more than last year.
The budget hearings will start at 6:30 p.m. at 3702 U.S. Highway 14. The regular meeting will begin at 7 p.m.
