McHenry County Council of Governments

Established in 1976, the McHenry County Council of Governments is a cohesive network of governmental bodies who seek to foster cooperation between all levels of government. The purpose of the McHenry County Council of Governments is to uphold and advocate principles of effective local government, facilitate solutions to regional issues and otherwise lessen the burdens of government.

McHenry County Coordinator Partnership

McHenry County Coordinator and McHenry County Council of Governments Executive Director Chalen Daigle. 

In 2020, the MCCG and McHenry County partnered to form the McHenry County Coordinator position.  The position is tasked with exploring ways local governments and local government agencies can collaborate and share services.  This first of its kind partnership between a Council of Governments and the County provides an opportunity for all governmental agencies to explore and build upon service sharing, joint purchasing opportunities and collaboration.  The McHenry County Police Social Worker Program is one of the first successes in bringing together local law enforcement with the McHenry County Sheriff's Department to provide social workers to assist law enforcement on mental health related calls.  The County Coordinator's work is only beginning and we look forward to growing the position to include training, more joint purchasing opportunities, continued grant assistance and exploring local government efficiencies to save municipalities and residents money and time. 

McHenry County Municipal Purchasing Initiative (McMPI)

McHenry County Municipal Partnering Initiative (McMPI) is a joint effort between McHenry County, the municipalities, townships, school districts, fire prevention districts and others to jointly bid on and share services. All local government entities are encouraged to take part in the McMPI.
