Isn't so sad how Blue Island has become. Our city, our schools, our park district, and buisness in town. Those of you who have serve in those elected offices, your time is up and see what you have done. Give other persons an opportunity to be elected, they can do better, we reached the bottom. As soon I sell my house which has been for sale for 2 yrs, I am out of here! This comunity has not been together for the last 25 yrs. Good luck in the future. You will need it.

I also agree, my family has been in Blue Island for generations and I purchased my home 17 years ago. I would be very lucky to sell my home for what I bought it for. Taxes have more than tripled and what do taxpayers get for it? Poor schools, closed down storefronts, horrible roads, closed bridges, an old abandoned Jewel, extremely dangerous abandoned gas station, graffit on your property, homeless, drunks, drug addicts wandering around pissing in alleys, gangs, car thefts, home burglaries, section 8 where no one takes pride and this list can go on. I do realize other communities can have these issues too, but think I would take my chances on a town like Frankfort that can have comparable taxes as here. Blue Island is starting to turn into a poor Ford Heights. I wish I could find some positives, but now find I can not get my family out of here quick enough.

City officials home rule will not solve the problems in the city. Make an effort to improve the issues facing the city of Blue Island. Do not become Ford Heights.
