I have been away from the Ridge for 5 years. WHAT HAPPENED ????? This use to be a family neighborhood. I lived in this town for 45 years. I have never seen anything like it. The houses were always handed down to the kids and everyone knew everyone. Makes me glad I left.

So why don't you tell us EXACTLY what you see that offends your delicate sensibilities so much.

Does the leader of the Chicago Ridge Village Board think that the Village should get rid of the Chicago Ridge Fire Department?
If Chicago Ridge lacked a Fire Department we must all say it does call into the question why the Village of Chicago Ridge even exists? Isn't the Village supposed to provide all general services including Fire and Ambulance?
It isn't just supposed to exist to deliver patronage checks to those that back the Mayor and the Performance Party.
Given the challenges Chicago Ridge and other communities of that size face does this Village Board support small being annexed into a larger neighbor?
However, that should not be decided solely by King Tokar and his minions. Maybe the residents would rather be in Alsip, Worth or Palos Hills, or (gasp) Oak Lawn.
Whatever happens should be done via popular vote the next election and should be done as transparent as possible. If Chicago Ridge does continue to exist, next election the residents need to wake up and vote Badon, Lind, Grove and Davies, out of office and then vote Tokar out in the following election. They all just are sinking Chicago Ridge.

I don't understand how the Mayor who has lived here for a long time along with his cronies don't want better for this neighborhood. 107 and Ridgeland has enough sparkle it could b a runway. Apartments are the worse. Whose suppose to follow up on that trash. We need a neighborhood meeting. For all the gripes before we turn into a town like Marqurette or another town that was once beautiful.

Instead of rebuilding public innercity housing....our government used taxpayer funds to hand out Section 8 Housing assistance to many of the ghetto's poorest...sending them like destructive missiles, into the once nice Suburbs.....Social Engineering is using the citizens own funds, to force integration of their neighborhoods.....

I must say though there are several garages and houses that are extremely run down, or have damage or holes in the roofs which can be easily seen from the street. And build something where Brunos used to be and most of all get rid of those Ford Heights looking apartments by menard park and use the land for more parking for little league!!

What do you mean? Not the same? Looking at the headlines in the Reporter lately. Drunk, uhmm slow and clouted inspectors not doing their jobs. Just like always. The only crime is th Mall and the Mayor is just foolish. Sounds the same.
