Cal Skinner’s McHenry County Blog has a good summary of the proposal.
“….A press release from Nunda Township Trustee and Nunda Township Republican Central Committee Chairman Mike Shorten:
Township Consolidation Initiative Launched Citizen Lead Effort to Reduce Government Units in McHenry County
Crystal Lake, IL March 31, 2015 — The McHenry County Citizens for Township Consolidation (MCCTC) announced plans today to pursue an initiative to reduce the number of Townships in McHenry County through consolidation via a binding referendum in the March 15, 2016 primary.”
….”This could be accomplished through petition, which would mean gathering 10,000 signatures, or by having the McHenry County Board place a referendum on the ballot.
Organizers are looking at the March, 2016, primary election date so township governments would have about a year to figure out details. The next township elections would occur in the spring of 2017.
Voters in any township could vote down the referendum. If a township’s residents did so, there would be no change in their township government.
Township populations in 2010 were as follows:
- Algonquin – 88,389
- Grafton – 53,137
- McHenry – 47,653
- Nunda – 38,245
- Dorr – 20,911
- Greenwood – 13,990
- Chemung – 9,134
- Marengo – 7,564
- Richmond – 6,683
- Burton – 5,003
- Coral – 3,552
- Seneca – 2,994
- Riley – 2,922
- Dunham – 2,844
- Hebron – 2,356
- Hartland – 2,031
- Alden – 1,402
