Grayslake Village Manager Mike Ellis earns more than Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel, according to the conservative organization For the Good of Illinois.
According to a new study by the conservative leaning public interest group For the Good of Illinois, the salary of Grayslake Village Manager Mike Ellis comes out to $259,252 yearly.
According to the study, Ellis is one of seven city managers who makes more money in salary annually than does City of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.
A call to Grayslake Village Hall was also left unreturned. In the past, Grayslake officials have told Grayslake Patch privately that Ellis does such a superior job that he deserves his salary.

I know Mike Ellis professionally & personally.
Mr Ellis needs to take a pay cut, fire his landscaping company (mow his own lawn) and tell his wife to go out and get a good paying job like the rest of us hard working tax payers.
Correct me if I am wrong Tim or Homer, but hasn't Mr.Ellis been employed with the village about 25 years or so?
Mike may be doing a great job, but let's take this in context.
Maybe if you worked as hard at your job as you do stalking Mike you might get paid well at your job.
Mr Ellis should be paid what managers of similar sized towns are paid, no more, no less.
So everyone pays for your raises just, like we pay for Mr. Ellis's raises.
Grayslake has a plan and Mike Ellis did the planning.
What I'm saying is I'm paying a ridiculous amount of taxes and my return is a below average grammar school and a village that lacks vision and evidently common sense when it pays Mike Ellis over a QUARTER OF A MILLION DOLLAR's insane
You honestly think Mr. Ellis and his lovely wife are the ONLY Grayslake residents who have a lawn service?? I have one! And I bet some of your neighbors do too! Obviously you haven't had the pleasure of getting to know the Ellis' during the 25+ years he has been working for our village.
Mr. Ellis deserves his salary, just like any other hard working man who has dedicated his entire adult life to the village my family calls "home" Oh! And BMF- you really think His salary is solely responsible for the harsh decline in our economy? Of course it isnt. But hey, he obviously brings home more than you, so let's blame him!
Thank you MR Ellis! Can we 25 more? Illinois the state of no accountability.
If Mr. Ellis would like to leave Grayslake I will gladly welcome him to my town at any price! To those crying over the school district, and I might add rightfully so, please understand that your school district is a separate entity from your village government. Mr. Ellis and his salary have no bearing whatsoever on what is happening there. Get up off the couch and go to a school board meeting and voice your opinion, it won't change until you do. Finally, to the ignoramus who brought Mrs. Ellis in to this discussion, SHAME ON YOU!!
