Without fail, county websites fall short
DIXON – Lee County just got a new website, but in terms of transparency, one conservative think tank said, it gets an F.
The Illinois Policy Institute, a free market nonprofit, audited the websites of 26 northern Illinois county governments, and all five area counties received failing grades, according to a news release.
In order to score well, counties accumulate points by having different information available on their websites, including the past 5 years’ worth of budgets and audits, lobbying information, employee contracts, and salary and benefit information.
