Considering that the fourth of July is on the fourth of July, you might think they would be on the fourth of July. I heard they are going to fix the siren and let it wail for the fourth. 2700 dollars to fix it. What a waste. BTW, do you have any change I could have? I need me a 40!

Considering Blue Island has not been paying it's bills for a period of several years we are in debt up to the ceiling. The reports and numbers tell it all.

It's my lucky day! Local government budgeted revenues, outstanding debt and pension debt, ten year levy (taxing) history, percentage of levy (taxing) change over ten years, rate of return on investments, and rate of salary increases were published today under the debt disclosure ordinance.
The council has made a serious huge mess of city finances.

The City Treasurer Carmine Billotto lied to all of us. He told us, the city was in the black. Carmine, and anyone running with him should not be elected next April.

New, nationwide accounting rules adopted last week will force public pension funds to disclose that they are underfunded by hundreds of billions of dollars more than they now acknowledge. And as any politician can tell you, nothing is more perilous to incumbents than a citizenry that understands the immense risk that these unfunded obligations pose for taxpayers and for public employees counting on pension payments that may not materialize.

A real independence day can be realized when the incumbents step down, decide not to run again, or are voted out of office. While they are in office they are accountable and responsible for their actions and failure to act. No doubt many pension may not materialize; for others; their pensions should be taken away period.

As to what the city spends our money on. If I Recall correctly Was their not two or three multi-million dollar fines against the city due to a police officer and other city officials?

They can be charged while in office and when they are no longer in office.

Answers to most questions can be found http://www.city-data.com/city/Blue-Island-Ill... and by attending meetings where you can see for yourself; the mayor and council make conscious decisions to repeatedly work against the best interest of the residents, taxpayers, and public as evidenced by their bad body language, video tapes (on Comcast or ATT), and written record that reflects the way the council members vote.
By the way; you can email, call, or go to the library and request information for yourself to confirm the library does not have it to provide.
You can also FOIA for yourself and read how tax dollars are distributed, wasted, dispersed.
You sir remind me of the Soviet Ambassador during the Cuban Missile Crisis who was accused of the by then American UN Ambassador Adali Stevenson of misleading statements, obfuscation, confusing rhetoric and out right lying. What bone do you have to pick with Mayor Vargas and the new government in place? Maybe you kissed the Stevo ass too much? Maybe you are a Peloquin loyalist who was shown the door or will be soon out of City Hall? What is it? Out with it? Or do you just sit in Mom's basement spewing out your half baked truths and ideas while satisfying your perverted sexual needs under the table? You speak of transparency but offer none yourself. You throw stones but are not very careful if you are throwing some at yourself. You know "Body Language". I say BS. I would be cautious.
