The McHenry Township road district will host a town hall from 7 to 9 p.m. Monday at the McHenry Township offices, 3703 N. Richmond Road, Johnsburg.

The meeting aims to inform residents about what the road district does and answer questions from residents about services and current legislation that affects the district.

A referendum on the Nov. 6 ballot asks voters whether the road district should be abolished. If voters say yes, then McHenry Township will assume the road district's responsibilities.

In February, township officials voted, 3-2, to put the referendum on the ballot.

McHenry Township Trustee Bob Anderson has maintained that eliminating the road district would save money and give residents a voice. Highway Commissioner Jim Condon thinks a cost study into whether abolishing local governments would save money should be done before residents vote on the matter.

For information, contact Condon at 815-385-3076 or jcondon@mchenrytownship.com.
