If you have knowledge of supervisors stealing overtime, why don't you report it to the police department or State's Attorney office? Instead of saying it here and where it is probably not happening.
Have you seen the current police station and what conditions those guys work in? If not, stop by and ask to take a look. And it isn't feasible or safe for the place to be rehabbed. And the complete detioriation of the place occurred under the previous administration. Don't they deserve a safe place to work?
I am not the biggest fan of the mayor, but he has put this place on a better path. More businesses, more stores filled. Let's remember there were 12-13 years of the previous administration and his errors and ways. Not everything can be corrected in 3-4 years.

Whats been fixed a 3-4 acre sight for citizens to go pay their tickets which are written faster than the ticket books are printed?--In April they'll show their appreciation,bet on it!!--So for approxametely 40-50 million dollars we have underpass and police station,20-25 acres,while the rest of the town is crumbling.65,000 acres I'd guess.Excellent planning.

General fund. This fund is used to account for general operations and activities not requiring the use of other funds.
Fund balance is defined as the difference between the assets and liabilities of a fund.Fund balance is terminology that is applicable to “fund level” reporting of individual governmental funds and is based on the modified accrual basis of accounting. It is used as a measure of the amount available to budget or spend in the future.
April 30, 2009 audited financial statements - ending balance general fund (5,393,376)
April 30, 2012 audited financial statements - ending balance general fund 4,732,810
In three years Pedersen took us from negative 5 million to positive 5 million in the general fund. The general fund numbers represent the operations of the Village. When Pedersen took over the Village was on the verge of bankruptcy and couldn't pay it bills. Flash forward three years, the Village has award winning financial statements and the bond rating is increasing. THIS is what the Mayor has done. Please educate yourself on these important matters before sounding any more stupid!

What is really stupid is to drain the fund to pay for cost overuns on the police complex.
And then try and pass the bond tax before anyone can due anything about it

this is with the approval of our "democrat" mayor.no "girls" allowed in the utilities dept. i guess. or brown skinned hispanics.
The reason there aren't women in the department is because of a retired supervisor. Years ago he developed a relationship with a female employee while he was married.
Happy ending: they are married now.

Again you listen far to much to Zero, Kuggie Oddsevado, and litwin and their puppetmaster that controls their money Prichett. There were many Village meetings to discuss what the money was for and once again Bankrupt Franklin Park with bogus lawsuits Ken Zurek with the blessing of Prichett Lied through his teeth to collect signatures for their referendum. Stood on the train station and lied to peoples face. Now we pay the price once again for Zurek railroading our town. When you rise up in anger against Ken Zurek and Dan Prichett ans shut them down..

Randy didnt control the money Prichett did and he was far to busy paving alleys for friends while watching other folks homes flood as he lied to residents faces about fixing their sewers and streets...A genuine all around a-hole as a mayor.

This is too easy, can I call my lifeline, Answer; because Dan Prichett controlled the pursestrings and he overspent on the underpass and Alleys and there was no money left while Bald Face lieing to voters as hes doing again. Once all residents learn the extent he will go to for vengence sake Like financing Ken Zurek who just cost the TAXPAYERS65,000.00 in legal defense fees that the Judge dismissed with prejudice. WE all hope he gets run out of town and his picture should be removed from Village hall with DISGRACE

Do you even know what bonds are??? The Village sells the bonds on the market and recieves the proceeds (cash). The ones "rolling the dice" are the people purchasing the bonds. They then get compensated for their risk & time value of their money in the form of interest. The Village is NOT buying the bonds. Why the hell would be care if some so-called expert predicts that other municipalities are going to default, when we don't own any othe municipalities bonds. The current regime are experts in finance and are very aware what they need to do to pay back the debt. We will have this police station for the next 100 years! Serious projects take serious money. By the way do you even know how much revenue the Village takes in? No, you do not!!! Do you know where to look for that number? No, you don't! Get a clue loser
