why is it the water department can only take there truck to 1 place to get fixed in hoopeston. they are not allowed to check prices and get parts for cheaper they have to go to McElhaney's friend and how much kick back is he getting for doing this? they should have the right to take it to other places what do you guys think?

I think everyone would agree the city is run poorly. But were too lazy to turn out to vote and we keep putting the same people in the offices. We deserve what we earn. And this is it.

Don't tell me you wouldn't do the same. Drive the city vehicle everywhere, all HIGH and MIGHTY! If you say you wouldn't, than you're probably a lier! Besides there are some decent city workers that do follow the rules. So don't put down all of them for the few that disregard rules. Don't be throwing stones because they may fly back your way someday. Whether you did something or not.

I do not work for the city. Not all people are bad. Some people just like to make trouble out of everything. There is good in every person, even if it is a little. Cities are only as the residents make them.

Many of the cities employees are corrupt. They steal, lie and do as they please. They are allowed to do this because apparently now body who has been voted into office really cares. All they cared about was having a title! What a shame.

At least they are working and not lazy like the rest of the dope smoking town. Let them drive their trucks & squad cars home. At least their pay isn't very much they can have something for it. You go get in a water hole in January and work 10 below. Sorry you get no sympathy here.

My husband happens to work for the city of Hoopeston, I can guarantee you he is over worked and under payed. Yes just like most jobs. The employee is taken total advantage of while the folks in the office receive all the glory and pay raises. So what if they drive the city vehicle home, that's all they do they sure aren't cruising the strip.

The whole "being" of hoopeston has just gone down hill. No one wants to "be a part of it".....if your aren't certain ppl around here, it doesn't matter what you want. Im not saying that there aren't any good ppl here in town, but most ppl just sleep here.....travel for work, or for anything fun to do. Alot of it has to do with the economy and alot of it has to do with others arrogant attitudes. Just take a look around at all the "for sale" signs in ppls yards...everyone wants out!

I think homes are for sale here because there are no jobs in this town. There is virtually no entertainment here, no decent restaurant,and no place to shop. I remember back when down town was active and stores to shop in. Now it just needs torn down. It's really sad. And the trucks go to the lowest bid.
