Taxpayers will apparently fund another potentially costly legal battle between Kane County officials as board members and Sheriff Pat Perez could not reach agreement Wednesday on who must pay for a 2 percent raise recently awarded to sheriff’s department employees and correctional officers.Attention guys: taxpayers pay it all. Sounds to me like Sheriff Perez can't take the heat and ought to get out of the Kitchen. The Executive of an Agency takes the Budget the board sets, and then makes ends meet to complete the mission. Whining doesn't cut it. Going to court on the taxpayers nickle really doesn't cut. Taxpayers rightfully should start whining at the ballot box next year.
