Driving into town the non street leagal ....... backhoe that the city owns and drives all over town like a plated car , which has one seat for a operator is driving on the main roads of town with 2 people jammed inside the cab. So not only is it acceptable to drive illegally on roads with a non plated, non placarded vehicle , it must be ok to drive it also with no seat belts either !!! How bout us making our own rules for golf carts ,4 wheelers, n go carts ?????

Seriously you've got nothing better to bitch about than the maintnance guys going to do a job or on their way back from doing a job. They're not out joy riding and having a good ol time they're working. Dumb ass maybe you need to get a job and quit worring about everyone else and what they're doing. And and FYI I do NOT work for coal city and I am not friends with any of these people I just see them sometimes myself.

Gotta agree with the poster here !!!! If it is a fact that they were "doing a job " that would be a feat in itself as all they do is drive around all day in the said backhoe and other town vehicles doing very little (and before you try with your smart ass comment to me -yes i do have a job and work shifts ),lets look at the asshole deep grass across from the high school ((would make me want to bring my bussiness or home here looking like chicago ghetto)) or the half finished lawn repair from 2 years ago that THEY tore up in front of my house !!!! You should really know what your talking about before you reply to someone elses post !!!!

Glad they save a little money not mowing the shoulders so much. Good place for critters like pheasants to hide.

But I think other than the slow moving vehicle sign on the back of the tractor, we don't need to give the state money for license plates.

But if you have issues, why not do a citizen's arrest. But no bullets for you; you are too uptight, Barney.

The many backhoes you see running around Coal City are from the gas company upgrades going on. The ditch across from the high school is not part of Coal City it is the State of Illinois ditch.

Since when does city water flowers on private property? I saw young lady on city tractor with a very large water container on a trailer watering flowers at the Garfield building at Franklin and North. Who do I contact for someone to come and water my flowers. That is using taxpayers money and I know thats illegal.

All this talk reminds me of one snowstorm here in Coal City. Had the big city plow out doing roads. You know which one I mean- the PICK UP TRUCK. 3 guys packed in the seat. One to drive, one to change channels on the radio, and the guy in the middle to light the other 2 guys cigarettes. Our tax dollars hard at work- 3 in a truck to plow.

Even better- fixing the water main break (3rd time) and I look out my kitchen window to see the young man with his "tool" out of his pants taking a leak. Tried to get a picture to show our top of the line city council but it was so small it didn't show up in my picture.

We have so much to be proud of in our city workers.
