This is just crazy - and you watch and see how fast the village official are going to do the same thing. They are going to want more money. If there put out more and do a better job for the residents and the village as a whole and start working for the people, instead of wasting tax dollars month after month then maybe - just maybe and increase. Lets not forget about all the perks - milage - cell phone - pagers - travel

They say they don't earn enough for the time that they invest representing our interest.
Then maybe they shouldn't run for another term?
Find another job then.
What ever happenned to running for public office to serve the voters, not for a paycheck?
Outside of buying up land for the Forest Preserves, what else have they done to deserve this raise???

I'm glad I moved away from Lake County so I don't have to see my tax dollars going to pay Board memebrs who ran Lake County into the ground! 16 percent are you kidding? They definitely have the politician attitude!

I just think it is funny how everyone has less money, gas is getting out of hand, the economy is weak, real estate is diving (property taxes still raise), and the goverment believe it deserves more money. Everyone else has less money and they want more.

That and the fact that at some point the percentage that the govermnet charge of people's income will reach 100% if it always raises even when times are tight. It is simple math to the rest of us but the govermnet call it the "budget". Current percentage plus continual increase (tax or some fee or another) eventually adds up to 100%.

The County Board is a mismanaged gang if radicals. Sandra Hart needs to reimburse the county for the 100 somewhat , emails she drafted and sent in her unauthorized witchhunt of the monkey Jockeys, at the county fair. They deserve a pay cut not a pay raise. More money for more monkey business, YOU GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!
