Just what is needed "a bar" and while we all wait for Bob Jones to open all can go to the new bar...a lot of BS in this town...agreed ??

After what happened to bobby this past week, I am sure that there is something wrong with braidwood! The poor guy has been railroaded at every end! I'm not the biggest bobby jones fan, but enough is enough! Let the guy open what ever it is hes trying to open and leave the guy alone! He's trying to do something for the town and gets ran into a dead end at every chance!

There is plenty wrong with Braidwood starting with the Mayor and her best side kick "the inspector"...there are so many problems with buildings here in Braidwood,I'm sure there are contractors that fall into and out of grace..Did Bobby Jones serve on the board at one time??...this is soooo obvious that there is something "strange"going on between Jones and City Hall....A.G. is gone and if I were a contractor or someone that wants to start a new bussiness I would run out of town,this is no place for a new business to get atarted,if it's not City Hall then it's the inspector that discourages new bussiness here in Braidwood...It all has to do with "small town mentality"....there has to be "someone" here in this town that can turn things around...

You would think Braidwood would encourage new business. We need sources of tax income. I believe all of this will make a difference how we vote in the next Mayoral election. This is worse then Mayberry!!!

Yes there is a new person running the bar at the old Knights of Columbus building. She didn't advertise the opening in any of the papers. My guess is because she and her peanut gallery dont want all of the riff raff coming in to their bar. Which, I totally understand.
Also, I agree about the new bar and Bob Jones too. They will let someone open a bar while Bob Jones is working his ass off to try and open a nice place for Braidwood residents to enjoy and maybe other communities too but the man keeps getting railroaded! Well all I can say is, I DID NOT VOTE FOR SUE GRYGEL. YES PEOPLE, I VOTED FOR WAYNE T. SALTZMAN. I know he wasn't the greatest mayor, but it wasn't this bad up at City Hall when he was in.
what a joke

I beleive bob was on the board when sue was fired so lets guess why they are giving him a hard time. Im guessing that suye is not planning on running again or why would she be discouraging buisness from town.

Oh Yeah,everything was just great under the Saltzman administration.We were $2,000,000 in debt,A police chief running the town and ripping it off for a huge salary,and a police commisioner who went along with whatever the chief wanted,a strip mall that was built without a permit and the contractor fined $25.00 (YES, THAT IS TWENTY-FIVE DOLLARS),the TOWNES OF BRAIDWOOD was built which wouldn't comply with code in China. Let's change administrations and go back to the "GOOD OLD DAYS" when the "GOOD OLD BOYS" ruled the town,and homes were built so that their yards flooded everytime we got over 1" of rain.We also lost the Braidwood Power Station,if you recall. Oh please we can't put up with much more of this code compliance stuff. We were known for inspections that were so lax as to be criminal.And you want to return to this? I am just happy to know that you are in the minority,and there will be changes in city hall but I doubt that the current Mayor will be one of them.
oh yea

I think he should have built under the previous administration,because he would not have been required to get a building permit,and just suffered under the $25.00 fine. Oh,Woe is me,BObby is being picked on. Maybe he should read the codes before he startred building. As the Mayor stated at the last council meeting,"Other builders are building in this town,with no problem".Maybe because they know the codes and are complying with them. Put in your grease trap & whatever else is required and he will be able to open.He's no differant than the rest of us,even if some think so. We are not all waiting nervously for him to open up another saloon,which Braidwood needs like another useless commissioner in charge of the police dept...

Yes, we should have re elected Wayne Saltzman. He loves Braidwood,and he was a good Mayor. I hope he runs again. You never saw drunken brawls at the Council meetings before. Give Mr. Jones his license so we can start collecting sales taxes. What a mess, and a joke our Mayor, and council is today.

I AM THINKING OF SUING THE CITY FOR THIER SO CALLED INSPECTORS PASSING MY HVAC AND PLUMBING SYSTEM WHEN I BOUGHT THE HOUSE NEW IN 2006. I HAVE HAD TO HAVE ALL MY PLUMBING RE-DONE AS IT WAS NOT DONE RIGHT AND KEPT FLOODING MY LAUNDRY ROOM AND I HAVE HAD TO HAVE ALL MY VENTING REDONE AND PATCHED, AND HAD TO BUY A NEW FURNACE AND AC AS THE ONES THE BUILDER INSTALLED WERE TO SMALL FOR THE SIZE OF THE HOUSE. I AM ALSO ONE OF THE ONES WHEN IT RAINS 1 INCH MY NEIGHBORS YARD GETS SO FLOODED THAT IT COMES UP UNDER MY NEW FENCE AND SITS THERE.. ALL WINTER LONG. THIS WAS DUE TO THE SO CALLED INSPECTORS NOT MAKING THE BUILDER INSTALL THE PROPER DRAINAGE PIPES IN THE BACK OF OUR PROPERTIES.THEY TELL ME THEY TOLD HIM WHAT HE HAD TO DO, BUT NEVER INFORCED IT. I SPENT 10K ON THE FENCE, ANOTHER 4K ON A NEW FURNACE AND AC AND $1500 HAVING MY PLUMBING REDONE. IT WILL COST ABOUT 3K TO GET MY FENCE REPAIRED ALSO.
I KNOW I HAVE 7 YEARS TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT AND SINCE THE BUILDER HAS JUST ABOUT GONE BROKE.. I BELIEVE IT IS THE CITY I WILL GO AFTER AS THEY WERE THE ONES THAT SAID ALL WAS OK WITH THE HOUSE B4 I BOUGHT IT. SOUNDS GOOD TO ME AND I NEED TO BE REIMBURSED FROM SOMEONE FOR SURE.
I ALSO HAVE A 4 YEAR OLD CONCRETE DRIVEWAY THAT WAS INSTALLED BY MR JONES THAT I HAVE BEEN AFTER HIM FOR THE ENTIRE 4 YEARS TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT. I FINALLY GOT HIM TO COME TO MY HOUSE TO LOOK AT IT ABOUT 5 WEEKS AGO WITH A PROMISE FROM HIM THAT HE WOULD GET BACK TO ME... NO RESPONSE AS OF TODAY..THE DRIVEWAY IS TOTALLY PITTED. MR JONES TOLD ME IT WAS BECAUSE I HAVE HAD CARS SITTING ON IT IN THE WINTER TIME WITH SALT FROM THE ROADS ON IT. IT'S FUNNY, I HAVE ONLY ONE CAR THAT SITS IN THE GARAGE AT ALL TIMES AND HAVE NEVER HAD ANYONES CAR "SETTING" IN MY DRIVE WAY FOR MORE THAN A COUPLE OF HOURS. HE THEN CHANGED HIS MIND AND TOLD ME IT IS THE PLACE WHERE HE BOUGHT THE CONCRETE AT WHO IS AT FAULT AND HE WAS GOING TO CONTACT THEM TO COME OUT AND LOOK AT IT. AGAIN.. THIS WAS OVER 5 WEEKS AGO. I'M STILL WAITING.
I ALSO HAVE HAD NUMEROUS ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS THAT I HAVE HAD TO PAY TO HAVE CORRECTED IN THIS HOUSE.
DO YOU THINK I AM PISSED??? YOU BET I AM! I AM GOING TO FIND OUT JUST HOW THIS TOWN TAKES RESPONSIBILTY IN PASSING THINGS IN MY HOUSE THAT WERE ABSOLUTELY NOT DONE TO CODE. HELL... I WAS IN THE HOUSE FOR ONE FULL WEEK WHEN IT WAS NOTICED THAT THE VENT FROM THE HOT WATER HEATER WAS NOT VENTED OUT THROUGH THE ROOF. THANK GOD WE WERE ABLE TO HAVE ALL OUR WINDOWS OPEN THAT WEEK OR WE WOULD SURELY HAVE BEEN DEAD FROM CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING. THE CITY SURELY WOULD HAVE MADE MY RELATIVES RICH THEN WOULDN'T THEY HAVE.
SOOOOO IM GONNA LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL. GET READY CITY HALL CUZ I AM COMIN BACK TO BUG ALL OF YOU!
THE CITY WAS CALLED OUT HERE NUMEROUS TIMES DUE TO THE FLOODING, BUT COULD NEVER FIND ANYTHING WRONG UNTIL THEY WENT INTO MY CRAWL SPACE. THEY WERE THE ONES THEMSELFS THAT SAID THE PLUMBING WAS NOT PITCHED RIGHT AND THAT IS WHY IT WAS BACKING UP AND FLOODING THE LAUNDRY ROOM. PRETTY BAD WHEN THE CITY SQUEELS ON ITSELF HUH?

I'm with you !! I have issues with the city and NOTHING was/is done,I'm told that the previous inspector is at fault,can you imagine that !!! The City has and will not accept responsibility for nothing !!! they cross their "T"s and dot their "I"s but one day they will have to pay for their mistakes....and it's going to be real soon for me !!! Don't allow Jones to tell you that crap about your concrete,perhaps you had it poured during winter ??...still the contractor has to repair it and they have insurance to cover their work...so go for it !!

If the innspector was at fault, or if your builder used shabby mmaterial both should be taken to court.
