the JAWA board has not had a meeting since 2012. There was supposed to be a meeting in January but it was cancelled. The board decided not to meet until after the April elections.

A meeting was scheduled for May 30th but was cancelled due to a lack of quorum. The meeting was rescheduled for today but was cancelled again because of a lack of a quorum. The meeting is supposed to happen on June 27th @3pm.

What is clear is that some municipalities have decided to pull out of the JAWA project. If they don't show up for the meetings, there is no quorum and nothing with the project gets done. The problem is that the board hired all these companies to do work for them. It's not clear as to what is going on with the money.

In June, 2012, the B.I. city for a $600.000.00 bond sale to finance this project. This money will be paid by tax payers. A year later; we don't have an active JAWA board and no idea as to what has happened with the money.

Our mayor and city council need to get us out of this mess of a project and try to recover some of our money. Last year, the city council promised us a vote on the JAWA, we need that vote.

Was Blue Island Mayor and Representative Bilotto in attendance today? Thank You very much for the up date. Was the jawa lawyer present? Or was he busy with his field of dreams?

Jawa has failed on every level. Each of the 7 municipalities needs take action to recover any and all their all of respective funds from the individuals who failed to fulfill the Jawa contract as agreed.
(At the May 2013, date Mr. Stillman discouraged any further violations by the Jawa of the Open Meetings Act.)

The comprehensive report is long overdue and Jawa is out of compliance. The new mayors are not showing up because they want no part of the project, do not want to be part of the litigation, pending indictments, and depositions.

Mayor Peloquin and Attorney Burt Odelon should pay the entire cost, since it was their scheme.

They had assistance from the former treasurer, the project manager, and engineer; to lull and reel their pigeons (the unsuspecting easily led other mayors) in, dear. They were ripe for the plucking!

Mayor Peloquin, and Burt Odelson are more culpable than Mark, because he's not mature and old enough to know better. It is obvious they led him down the primrose path. He is so gullible, just wanted to be somebody, at all cost. And his Mother, she does not even know what time it is. Mark come with us to the FBI, and you can ask for exemption from legal prosecution, for exchange for your self incriminating testimony. You will ask for immunity. You will be able to return home. And you will be a hero.

Going to miss this villain. I liked it when he had princess Leah on his cruiser and was teasing her and stuff. Pretty cool. Now he's gone?

Old or new rectangular pieces of paper with pictures of dead presidents or Ben Franklin are the draw.
Sadly these folks never figured out why you'll never see a Brinks Truck at the cemetery!
