At Tuesday September 24,2013 City Council meeting, Mayor Vargas broke another of his Promises. The city has bought financial computer software for 38,000.00 Thirty Eight thousand dollars, another NO BID Contract. The Business as usual way of doing business continues. His policy is to ignore, the promises he made.

In today's competitive business market, why would any consumer purchase a service or equiptment without it going out for bid? Kickbacks?

No Bid Contracts are a problem, period.
Why did seemly intelligent aldermen cast a vote for or against moving ahead with a NO BID CONTRACT?

By the way no one voted; "NAY".

It was the no-bid contracts that caused the problems with the JAWA. The tax payers deserve better.

City Attorney Shawnte Raines,sat there speechless. She did not give an opinion, or show any sign of a desire to do what is right,and go out for bid! She is obviously not, concerned about the tax payer who pays her salary, but looking out for the politicians who gave her a job. Where is Blue Island ETHICS ORDINANCE?

Don't be so hard on her. She is still learning at our expense. Just as Carey Horvath learned at our expense.

Calling any of the above gets you no where.Our city is run by the Rita family now.We don't even have a police chief, we have a deputy chief that can be found daily at Ritas office on yourk street getting his orders. The building dept supervisor also there daily. Berini gets his orders by the mayor outside city hall daily as well. YOU ALL THOUGHT PELOQUIN WAS BAD YOU HAVENT SEEN BAD YET!!!!

Mayor Vargas has decided to limit Citizen comments to three minutes. THREE MINUTES. So much for transparency. He refuses to answer your questions, in fear that he could upset Bob Rita. Our Daughters, and Sons die in foreign lands so these people may live with Freedom. Here back home, our freedom of speech is taken away from us by these Communists in power.

Will mayor Vargas or PSO Rita address the public and advise us of the ongoing rash of residential burglaries we have had the past few weeks? Do our police have any suspects in custody or any leads?
