Mayor Domingo Vargas increased our taxes in the 2013-2014 tax levy by 4.9% the largest increase allowed without a public hearing. This is another political promise he broke. If you talk to him, you will walk away with the feeling he does not care! This extra money will go to pay for new employees who live outside of Blue Island. And to pay for other pet projects like wasting city monies on producing cable shows watching the Mayor assist in cooking class. Mayor Vargas forgot about rebuilding the BRIDGES,REBUILDING THE STREETS, OPEN THE RECREATION CENTER, ETC,ETC,ETC.

Increase taxes and cut City services. They are not smart enough to generate income through thoughtful measures that would build a town up and attract businesses that would form a viable tax base. People and businesses are fleeing this town while the administration provides less incentives for them to stay. While Blue Island goes down in flames, the BIIP blames the problems on others and does nothing to solve the problems. HAPPY NEW YEAR! Now pay up!

And you have indisputable FACTS to back up what you are saying here? Or are you just throwing crap up on the wall to see what sticks? Most of us in the California Gardens are quite satisfied with what he has done with the short time he has been in office. It is un-fortunate that we hear that some of you self entitled/self absorbed on the west side find him distasteful. We had to take & swallow your selfishness when you supported Peloquin. Vargas is one of ours...so swallow it.

Mayors Peoquin, Vargas are cut from the same cloth. When Vargas was Alderman he enabled Mayor Peloquin to do whatever he wanted without, any questions or concerns of the long term social costs these failed pet projects- programs cost us. Just keep on paying the high taxes without receiving the services, and job opportunities you are entitled to. No need to give you indisputable facts, you should read the council minutes.

Read the missing November online council minutes and agenda, they would reveal this tax increase. They have already forgotten about their pledge to be transparent.

The only backup that the BIIP have is themselves. They hang together like a group of cockroaches. No one else wants association with them and their dirty little deeds. Now, go pay your new increased taxes. Because, we need to cut more Senior programs and create more jobs for friends.
Not Anymore

I see so much vile racism on this site against Mexicans and Blacks on this site it sickens me. Blue Island is nothing better than a redneck version of a small town in Alabama or Mississippi. How proud you people must be to hide behind your computers to spew such filth and racial bias. And to reply to Mr. Bob Blehead....yes my ignorant friend..there are Mexican Americans living in the California Gardens. Why don't you come down here & find out. It is safe, we won't hurt you...not like you would hurt us if we went into your neighbor hood. How small minded you & others are here.

This is one of the most racists posts that I have ever read on Topix. Blue Islanders are racially diverse. We all live and breathe together, sharing the same ideals. Safe neighborhoods, good schools, quality healthcare, decent city services and honest gov't are we strive for. We have been severely let down by the current administration. You turn our concerns into the race card. I could care less if Vargas was an Eskimo or an Aboriginal, he still would be incompetent at running our town. We do not reside in segretated towns for a reason. We live here! There may be a few fools spewing hatred on this site, but you are just as guilty for playing into it. This for me is pure politics. Plain and simple.
