What are the Jawa goals?
Where is the report?
Where is the detailed billing?
What has happened to the money besides the Project Manager and the attorney making lots of money?
What have they done so far?
What is the Jawa plan?
Does Jawa have any real plan or goals to justify ANY additional spending?

Looking at this water project from a different perspective, perhaps it's not such a good idea, after all.

Why did Jawa Directors appoint a Project Manager with no deadlines for reports, feasibility study, and a pay rate of $45,000 per month and above?
Why did Jawa Directors fail to set benchmarks, require detailed billing, or a clear way to get money back in the event the project failed to meet agreed deadlines?
Why did Jawa Directors select a bankrupt cash-strapped Treasurer and his accounting firm? Following the Letke resignation nearly a year ago; why are there current payments from Jawa to Letke and company?
"It certainly appears as though the Seven Mayors/Jawa Directors took on a project filled with potential for failure and loss; that has not produced any results, failed to produce any reports or the feasibility study.
Jawa has generated bills lots of them with payouts to the same "individuals working together for their own common good".
Jawa won't pay off for any of the taxpayers; in fact the taxpayers from the seven different communities will pay for this failed project for the next twenty years.

Thank Mayor Peloquin, and city attorney Burt Oldsin for this theft, of Taxpayers money.

The entire Jawa project has operated "Twisted and Sideways."

Water Departments are selling water to get bottled and this can off set the Cost. The Cost to SUPPLY a water TO HOMES AND BUSINESS IS EXPENSIVE. Yet we can not live without water.
THe balance of responsible government is the unknown in Chicago.
THe unions cost us all more money- the price of labor thee yrs from today is more then today.
Dig a Well :)

Reports _ take time and life changes and ideas change
The Report must review Risk and schedules and cost .
Getting 7 Mayors to agree to pay anything need more meetings then
a normal meeting.
Get a grip People - Dig your Well :)
Joe Letke is doing what he is asked to do by his clients.
Everybody has a Boss and the Mayors are his.
THe Results -- is what the client needs and wants to start the process. You are crying over things you do not have full knowledge.
complainers -- sissy stop your winning
THe ATtorney is advising them what they are doing is ok.
#376 Aug 19, 2013
But what they are doing is not OK
Spending monies we don't have is not ok. Building a fresh water pipeline in an area known to have oil/gas pipelines that have been in place for over a hundred years an have had leaks is just plain stupid... Whiting in is a known industrial waste land why would you want drinking water from the same location?

A resident from Blue Island, requested Mayor Vargas become our representative to JAWA. He being a attorney, should prevent us from further financial risk. I do not Trust our current Blue Island board member Carmine Billoto.
#378 Aug 19, 2013
Why is LETKE and Associates still involved?
Webb is under investigation!
Why did Letke provide $10,000.00 worth of campaign donations?
Postel did not provide reports as agreed.
Postel had not provided any detailed billing.
The taxpayers from the seven communities were bilked and former Mayor Stephens figured it out and announced it at a JAWA Meeting!
#379 Aug 19, 2013
Carmine Biloto, must go!.
#380 Aug 20, 2013
I am sure Mayor Vargas will do the right thing, become Blue Island Rep on JAWA board. Carmine Billoto is a joke, who represents the old regime, and continues to protect their interest's.
#381 Aug 29, 2013
Today is the jawa meeting. And why should I go? Because the mayor and Alderman do not want you to go. It will be at 3 p.m. at Markham City Hall 163 rd and kedzie avenue. Not at markham court house, that was announced at the council meeting.
#382 Aug 29, 2013
The council should have gotten out of and away from the Jawa that has only provided kickbacks, filled pockets of the few, and provided Blue Island taxpayers with a million dollar plus bill to further strain and drain taxpayers and water consumers.
#383 Aug 29, 2013
The Jawa Board has operated the same way the Scandalous Meta Board has operated from day one. Individuals are accountable and some should get jail time for outright lying.
#384 Aug 29, 2013
Get off the stuff, it has clouded your judgement!
#385 Aug 29, 2013
No feasibility study, no water source, no appropriation report, missing meeting minutes, conflict of interest, meeting time changed from 3:00pm to 3:30pm. JAWA needs more money to continue the project so the attorney from Odelson and Sterk will visit the 7 communities (including the municipalities represented by Odelson and Sterk) to plea for another bond issue so JAWA can continue.
