Just received my latest water bill, it was more than double the normal. the last four bills have been estimated. When I tried to call the water department no one answered the phone. After four tries in an hour I quit trying. Is it just another computer glich or is it a scheme to increase their cash flow by over billing?
After talking to several neighbors all had increased water bills. What is really going on?

To the residents of Blue Island, Why do we have to pay estimation bill on our water bill when the city force us to supply the meter outside of our house? and guess what everytime there is an estimate bill it is always higher then what I normally use. City Officials why? Leave us alone, and do your job right! I am in the process of trying to get out this town ( and I am ashame of doing it). Blue Island is going down down hill!

You might want to go to the City Council meeting Tuesday Sep 9, 2014 @ 7p.m. Express your thoughts, they might listen since there is another election soon.

Reflect on your question and you will see the obvious. Never, in the history of our town, have we paid more for services than what we have received. That is, until now. The BIIP has found a way to scam the public with their "estimated" water bills. They have raised every fee imaginable from vehicle stickers to building permits to raise cash for their friend and family hires. They are trying to balance the budget on the backs of the individual homeowners. Drive around town and you will see it backfiring on them with all of the new for sale signs in town. End it NOW! Get together with neighbors and get the word out about these guys. You can't complain to them, because they don't listen to you. Instead vote them out! Vargas, Hawley, Billotto, Rita, Heuser etc.. The Aldermen/ women too! They are nothing more than sellouts. Beholden to the Rita's! End these ridiculous water bills now.

If your taxes are only $2000 be happy. mine are just over $3500 and the house is no mansion. I figure they raised the general taxes by about $110, vehecle stickers by $30, utility tax of $40 and water bills by $400. Thats a $580 dollars a year increase with one car and not having to get any permits.
What we got in return was poor snow removal,no leaf pick up, phasing out of bulk pickup, no police chief and no bid contracts

How about working to replace the Alderman. Elect real Public Servants. Not political hacks. These new policies can be change, and we then can get Blue Island on the move once again.

Your taxes are over $2,000 so you must not be an elected official or part of the friends and family program.

Get a referendum for the next election that states if an Alderman doesn't come to meetings, their pay is withheld. My Alderwoman hasn't shown up in months, possibly a year but she's paid every month. Stop the bleeding now.

Well, at least she take out building permits before being called out on it and hires licensed contractors. You must have voted for the other looser.

You think that truck in front of her house is because she hired licensed contractors? That's hilarious. You are the "looser" and her "looser" friend.

Too many water bill blunders courtesy of the BIIP and the No Bid contract they handed another friend.

The unofficial poll has been completed. 22 of 25 residents at church saw a major increase in their last water bill. Two didn't know if it went up or down and one says it was about the same. The double-speak from the water department is ridiculous. One says the bill were maually read no matter what the bill says, another says it was a computer problem but not to worry it will be fixed on the next billing. the question is whar lie do they expect us to believe.
