You are 100% correct. This administration has not thought outside the box, for thirty years. They have never been problems solvers,but problem creators.

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again; expecting different results.

You must be one of the people who Vargas canned because you were lazy and sat on your ass all day collecting a paycheck. I hope he roots out more lazy asses at City Hall. Lord knows there's enough of you there left over from Peloquin.
Are you referring to the former employees who kept our streets clean and our buildings safe? Go away M!

That would mean too much thinking on the BIIP, now it will be dangerous when it freezes these next few days. Is this what BIIP thinks of it's taxpayer's? Hope all of your insurance is paid up, it will be slide and crash time. These roads have never been so bad, while all other surrounding cities are all cleared. Pitiful!

If one child or person is injured as a result of our poor road conditions, it will be Hawley, Rita and Vargas that will be held accountable. The department heads want to clear our streets. We will hold them accountable for putting money before lives.

I wish the snow crew was out today. Our street was almost vacant of cars and they could have cleared curb to curb of the last snow that is loosening up. Unfortunately more snow is due the next 3 days, especially on Saturday and they don't work on weekends.

I hope that all of the citizens have stocked up on supplies and are prepared to be snowed in this weekend. The city will not be plowing because we will not be paying overtime for work done on the weekends. I urge ALL citizens to pitch in and shovel your part of the street in front of your house. We canNOT afford to salt and plow. Any excess money that we have is needed to pay for our overpaid director, lawyers and sweet contracts that we have awarded our friends. Please do your share and volunteer in order to keep the pockets of our friends stuffed. It is your duty as a proud Blue Island citizen. Thank You. If you have any questions, please contact my office and I will "get back to you later" (tee hee hee)

Bingo! Hawley is nothing more than a young inexperienced boy trying to run a city with absolutely no experience. His decisions will come back and slap him in the face very soon. He has aligned with the enemy and all of the First Ward knows it. They are talking behind his back while smiling in his face. His newsletter reeks of BS and self promotional crap. Snow removal? What snow removal?

I just witnessed a idiot city employee driving a dump truck with road rage. He was not plowing snow, not spreading salt.

Accept it; JR can not effectively manage every department even if he would like to.
