Facilities for the Future
The Courthouse was remodeled to accommodate the creation of the new 22nd judicial circuit in McHenry County. This remodeling included the construction of additional courtrooms without any financial help from the State (an unfunded mandate).
- Valley Hi Nursing Home
A new Valley-Hi Nursing home was built to replace the old, deteriorating building. The new facility provides greater efficiencies of service and eliminated ongoing health safety issues that were prevalent at the old site.
- McHenry County Jail
The 3rd floor of the jail was completed using mostly Federal dollars. The additional space will serve the county’s needs as the population of the county grows.
- Animal Control Facility
The new centrally-located facility has increased the number of pets that are adopted and has resulted in fewer cases of euthanasia. Opportunities for volunteerism have increased, which helps to keep costs down.
- Public Health Facility
The new public health facility provides better care and resources for women, infants and others who need public health services.
- Treasurer's Office
This building will now provide easy access for patrons and a drive-up facility for making payments.
- Smart Planning for Future Growth
A Facilities Master Plan was developed. The plan is a proactive, forward-thinking document which addresses future county facility needs. As part of this plan thirty acres north of the existing county government campus were acquired to handle needs over the next 30-50 years.
