Andy Wheeler was re-elected Chairman of the Kankakee County Board Monday morning. Todd Sirois of St. Anne will serve as Vice-Chair.
The Board re-organized with newly-elected members taking their oath of office. Wheeler received unanimous approval after serving the last two years as Chairman. He says the county has made great strides climbing out of the financial hole it's been in. He said we still have a ways to go, but the goal now is build a surplus upwards toward $5-million plus to avoid having to borrow.
Sirois meanwhile, says maintaining our revenues is key to be better prepared should something sneak up on us.
