Has anybody ever wondered why Posen residents pay 3 times the amount for their water than any of the surrounding communities? I own homes in Posen and Midlothian. The water usage is close to the same and if anything more is used at the home in Midlothian. My Posen water bill for one month is more than my Midlo bill is for three months. This has been going on for years. I've complained when I pay the bill in Posen and mysteriously my bill will go down a little for 2-3 months then goes right back up. I've been told at the Posen Village Hall that we buy our water from Harvey and get charged what Harvey charges Posen. I'm not buying it. I believe we are being fleeced on the water,sewer and garbage. My last bill from Midlothian for 3 months water,sewer and garbage was $71.00. My last bill in Posen for water, sewer and garbage for 1 month was $115.00. At that rate I will pay $345.00 for 3 months for less water than I used in Midlothian for $71.00. Something isn't right and I'm ready to take action. I'd like to bring this up at a village meeting but by myself I know I won't get any satisfaction. Is it just me or are we getting the pipe.

The only reason why Posen charge whatever they want for everything is because they have no respect for their residents. They cheat because the majority of the residents are Mexicans and/or seniors. These are the two groups that are considered to be open game. If you are related to someone in City Hall or connected with someone in City Hall, you are exempt from these high fees. It is about time Posen is exposed for their theft and misuse of funds. They have been doing what they want for years and no one has called them down on it. Please know, that those of you who are in charge, will have to answer some questions soon. I am not goig to tolerate this much longer. Stop stealing and do something for the community.

If you dont like it, maybe you should move to Harvey and deal their problems. While you complain about high water bills, Harver residents complain about robberies, burglaries and murder.

Oh please, don't change the subject and side step the issue. One wrong does not make the other right!

Is there any chance that you have a leak in the Posen house? If you call the PW they will come out and check it out for you.

Posen, just like Harvey have crime, murder and robberies also, the Posen police and Mayor hides these crimes. If the truth be told, crime is just as bad in Posen.

It's not a leak. Like I said in my original post I actually use more water at the Midlothian address going by the usage on both bills. Bottom line is POSEN is ripping the residents off on the water, garbage and sewer. I've seen many people complain at the village hall when paying the bill. If you complain the bill will go down about $20 for a couple months then goes right back up.

Garbage is $25 for three months in Midlothian and is $16 for one month in Posen so we're being shafted on that to.

And to the guy who brought up crime PLEASE tell me your not praising the job the Posen PD does.

You live in Midlothian,Illinois? I live in Midlo, IL and my current utility bill from Midlo due October 21st, "Rubbish" bill for 3 months is $45.90. My "sewer" bill for 3 months is $10.50. I see crime increase in Midlo and Posen and every other city in the USA.

Yes, I am praising what the Posen Police do. It seems like every time I drive down the street they have a traffic stop in progress with some gang banger driving.

On another subject, how do they hide crime? If your actually knew what you were talking about, you would know you could obtain copies of all official Police reports under the Freedom of Information Act.

I wonder how Posen still exits with all the village officials and police "ripping off" the poor town.

Don't tell me that I can't move out of the town of posen. You don't know what you are talking about. I. maybe unlike you, are able to move wherever I choose to move. I should not have to move to run from the crooked administration.

As for getting information from the freedom of information act, there is no information there to get if it is not reported. Maybe you were to busy defending yourself and/or the administration that you support that you forgot about this little thing called reporting a crime before you can request information about that crime.

Posen is barely existing. Look around and see how horrible it looks. Look at the parks and some of the streets and sidewalks. The only reason some of the property looks pretty good is the fact that the village official have Smitty (who is well connected in posen) do their yard work at our expense. Smitty has the largest business in the village I wonder what his taxes look like?

Then these "crimes" are all hearsay?

Go to the village meetings. Read the paper. Posen is in a better fiscal situation than many surrounding towns. The reason properties in Posen look good is because homeowners take pride in ownership. Tax records are available to the public.
