Hey Mr mayor why do the people of your town pay $7,500 a year in property taxes on houses that are only worth $70.000 . You have a part time police that don't even have guns. To put then in marked police cars to patrol and not even give them a gun.

Don't blame our mayor for high taxes when the City Council budgeted $38,738 more than last year after much public comment about needing to reduce the budget. Yet they had the nerve to increase the aldermen's portion of the budget from $496,557 to 535,295. That comes to $53,530 per alderman. Do we need to pay over a half - million dollars for a city council that makes incorrect public statements that we are bankrupt?
Residents, look at the source of comments posted here by non-residents. What do they know?
I am a 54 year resident of CCH.
