ABOLISH TOWNSHIP GOVERNMENT?

IL House Bill 4637, sponsored by Representative David McSweeney, would allow the township boards or citizen petition, in McHenry County, to put the question on the ballot to dissolve a township. If passed, everything would be turned over to the county. The bill ALSO provides that any township in McHenry AND Lake County that has a road district with 15 or fewer miles SHALL abolish the district with the power transferred to the township. This bill was passed out of the House Government Consolidation & Modernization Committee yesterday and is now on the House Floor. What do you think?  We'd love to hear from you at [email protected]
