Where is are Codes Officer? You are all right. There are so many run down homes, in our once very proud town, we will be the next slumdog movie. On North 4th Ave. a house has a junk car parked on the lawn, broken windows, fans, air conditioner, garbage laying on the lawn. Why isn't codes doing something. This is only one example. Maybe our codes officer is waiting for some stimulus package to do his job.
FIRE HIM!

Ask the judge about that property...that property owner was issued three citations and appeared in court, he was released and the condition continues, now how is that the fault of the code guy ?

he was cited, ordered to appear in court, on three separate counts, and this is the result...it's not the codes guy's fault.....another system failure.....

as far as the Arms comment. Don't be too hasty. Owners are putting millions into the plant. Already brought 2 gun businesses to Ilion. H&R and partial Bushmaster. More to come.
I have a question, how can you judge someone for having a fault or getting stopped for a traffic violation. I'm sure that at one point in your life you have been pulled over for one thing and was given additional tickets as well. Not only that, he is NOT always high and is NOT a menace to the village. How can you say someone is a menace to the village when they don't even reside within the village limits anymore. Not only that, your just jealous that someone such as himself is an extremely respected businesman who has been very successful for himself as well as his family. Just for the record, if your going to be using profanity and directing it towards someone, at least do it to there face.

I was the Bank Officer that cut off loans to Ilion when Jim Garnsey was Mayor and Maynard Chapin was Treasurer because they were running HUGE deficits and would not raise taxes because of fear that they would be voted out of office. After we cut them off, and they could NOT meet payroll, Chief of Police Lloyd Wadsworth and others LOANED money to the Village!!
You better check that pipe to see what your smoking.....when the Village got into a bind with J Garnsey at the helm, it was due to a lawuit initiated by George Getman who was in complete disagreement with that administration for trying to change the fiscal year from Feb to June..Their attempt to bond for that 5 month span from Feb to June was stopped via a court order brought by a class action suit.....you had nothing to do with it other than being told the village was unable to borrow....payroll was seriousy threatened by the sudden cash freeze and plans were being made for a former employee to float the village a loan to meet payroll. The court freed the village's ability to borrow and not a single payroll went unpaid.
My father Maynard Chapin passed away in 1984.Stop trying to blame him for things that were out of his control.I have alot to say on this subject,but will let my father rest in peace.Does anybody remember what he did for some of the less privaleged children in Ilion...I bet not!!!!

Let the record speak for itself. Aside from the payroll issues, a few people got alot of money from the Urban Renewal debacle too back during Garnsey administration. That was the start of Ilion going down the tubes and today the village is worse than ever. Some of those crooked politicians and village employees are still alive today and some aren't.
