As with municipalities throughout the area, the paychecks and perks that go with jobs for elected county board officials vary widely across the region.
Although county board members are expected to log in at least 21 hours of work a week to be eligible for pension benefits, board members in Kane and Will counties make half as much as those in DuPage County.
And in the smaller Kendall County — population 116,000, according to the 2011 U.S. Census report — board members receive a base salary of $2,400 a year, with another $85 for each meeting attended, with chairmen of the Finance Committee and the Planning, Building and Zoning Committee each getting an additional stipend.
