Quoting CCPLD Board President, "The libary board also wants to be good stewards of the taxpayers money". Are you joking. What an idiot. Does she think we are stupid? You have crapped on the taxpayers for how long? Max'ing out the tax rate every year, new roofs (multiple), new fire sprinker systems (multiple) and on and on. You moron, please do not patronize us taxpayers! By the way, I thought you purchased that home to generate rental income - monies. I guess that did not go well. More waste of the tax dollars. You are the biggest clown in town. The quote from Franciskovich was also good. "We want to be good neighbors". Every time you open your mouth a big wad of stupid falls out. Give us taxpayers a break. Close CCPLD down. I cannot afford it!

The library purchased that home and said it was to generate rental income. Now they want to turn it into a meeting place. The library has the large community room and the conference room. The Village allows groups to use there facility. Oh ya, the school district has a number of meeting rooms for the public to use. What in
God’s earth would the library want to spend tax dollars to convert a house into a conference room? Is it just me or does this sound fishy. It sounds like the CCPLD has tax dollars to waste. This makes absolutely no sense! However, I did get a chuckle when Board President Phillips said,“The library board wants to be good stewards of the tax payer’s money”. Ask any former board member and they will tell you of hundreds of thousands of wasted tax dollars. Multiple new roofs, multiple sprinkler systems, buying homes for rental property and it goes on and on. These are facts! Not to mention every single year the CCPLD votes to max out the tax rate.
The fire and school district both refused to increase taxes during these very difficult
economic times! Yet the CCPLD time after time voted to max out the tax rate. Then we have the poor library hours. Fifteen employees working during the day when few patrons use the library. See a snow flake and the library closes and the employees (all 15) get the day off with pay! Yet Morris and Braidwood will be open. What were you saying about good stewards of the tax dollars? I voted to create this library district years ago. I truly regret that vote. I hope the Village of Coal City has the courage to tell CCPLD NO. It is the only way to stop this waste of tax payer dollars. Attend the village board meeting and voice your opinion and support for Robert Hamilton and say NO to this gross waste of tax payer dollars.

I'm SICK of this tax and spending binge. District will not take austerity measures on their own.

Flood the Courtant Sound-Off with letters. Nothing else seems to stop CCPLD. At least the village had the courage to tell them NO.

Hello Lois. Remember when Bob and Neal came to board meetings and you treated them like crap? Well pay backs are a bitch! Happy to see the village shot down your next stupid idea. You are a joke. Any everyone in this town agrees.

CCPLD told us taxpayers that they wanted to buy the home behind the library. The library board said it would provide nice rental income. CCPLD then spent tax dollars to renovate the interior of this home. Recently CCPLD decided to tear down the garage they purchased with our tax dollars. You used tax dollars to knock it down. The garage added to the value of the home that you initially purchased and renovated with tax dollars. Now you want to spend more tax dollars to again renovate the home to turn it into a community center. Interesting?? What is wrong with the large community room inside the library? That home is turning GOLDEN with all the tax dollars you are spending. Phillips had the balls to say in the Courtant that she wanted to be good stewards of our tax dollars. I think not! Close it down!

It does not matter if you can read. It does matter how much tax dollars if taken from you wallet.

Apparently the Library is flush with cash. All of this over taxing resulting in a war chest of monies for their use. I just don't understand why they don't buy the 2 houses along 113 & year them down. At least then you could see the building.
Why did they build it there anyway? Someone said the Coal City city offices was once the library-is that true?
Oh ya, let them idiots use tax dollars to buy those homes at a premium price just to tear them down. If that is what you want. It is YOUR tax dollars being wasted. The articles in the courtant were excellant.
People know what idiots run that library. The public just does not know what to do to put a stop to it.
Oh Ya
