McHenry Co. (ECWd) -
WorldSweeper.com has taken an interest in the Algonquin Road District "Sweeper Gate", which is interesting to us considering the local media has basically ignored the matter.
"If you haven't picked it up on your own, this would seem to be the moral of this particular saga: There is much more oversight available now in the 21st century's Internet age. We are no longer in a time when oversight of operations happened as a result of relatively rare government inspectors. Rather, an average citizen with web access and the inclination to investigate, coupled with use of the US Freedom of Information Act, will probably be able to ferret out what has actually occurred in most government transactions. In addition, many communities now have organizations, like the Watchdogs, composed of individuals who have an interest in government transparency and ensuring ethical conduct."
It's a pretty sad day when a group in Washington State picks up on local problems while the local media does nothing.
