As Per The Constitution of the State of Illinois.
Pam McGuire,circuit clerk
SECTION 9. SALARIES AND FEES
(a) Compensation of officers and employees and the office expenses of units of local government shall not be paid from fees collected. Fees may be collected as provided by law and by ordinance and shall be deposited upon receipt with the treasurer of the unit. Fees shall not be based upon funds disbursed or collected, nor upon the levy or extension of taxes.
I would like to know, why is it? can somebody tell me that Pam McGuire is looking to replace money that would involve paying eight circuit clerk employees out of a document storage fund retroactively to August. Isn’t this and correct me if I am wrong, to be paid from fees collected, for some strange reason I think we tax payers are being given the shaft.
So I guess the Illinois Constitution means nothing at all, guess it is another piece of paper to wipe our butts with.
