Mayor Claar isn't the devil after all. I really doubt most of the people that talk trash about him could have done what he did with Bolingbrook.

I thought it was the people calling up and talking trash with him that got him to pull the plug on this nonsense.

It was an attempt to save $750,000. It was obviously not well thought out and he and the board repealed it. Honestly I think a good compromise could have been made. If there was a choice to pay to have my yard waste picked up from my front yard, or a place to dump it without one would have been good. This way the village saves some money and I can continue to get rid of my yard waste without a fee. But as it stands, the complaints succeeded and we all reap the reward.

I would rather see folks pay a little more to yard waste than lose a critical service else where , like police, fire or streets, But hey maybe the economy will pick up and they will find some revenue. Of course with gas at $4.29 a gallon it will take some serious picking up for people to have some extra spending money. Thanks to the mayor and trustees for being sensitive to people's pocket books non the less
