Hey tard, why dont you read your tax bill before you run your mouth. The village portion has barely risen, take a look at the school district bonehead. Get your facts straight.

Hey tard,

Why don;t you look closer at what Mayor Joak and the Village have voted on in the past 6 months!

a 300% increase in parking ticket fines, a 10% increase on natural gas, an incrase on our water bills, Vending machine licenses increased 400%, liquor licenses increased 20%, property taxes on next year's bill will be increased!

All of this during a recession!

What a JOAK!!!

The village's property tax rate has actually declined under the current administration. That taken with the fact that your standard homestead deduction was increased this year means that the vast majority of Romeoville property owners who actually LIVE in the village are paying less to the village.

Let's break down your concerns about these other user fees and fines:

Parking ticket fine - Only a problem if you BREAK the law. Had not been increased in over a decade.

Water rates - the Village of Romeoville had the LOWEST rate increase of any of the area's municipalities. Most water rates went up more than 28-45%(Lockport, Bolingbrook, Crest Hill, and Joliet are good examples of this.) Romeoville's went up 5% and won't need to spike higher than that rate of increase for at least 10yrs or longer. NO other municipal water system is that financialy strong right now or can plan that well into the future. FYI if you live in Bolingbrook you are paying 2.5 to 3 times as much for your water.

If your property taxes went up in Romeoville it is not because of Mayor Noak and the village board. Your tax bill should show the big increase coming from the school district, not the village. I also don't know how you have the insight to predict next years tax rate or assesment. They did raise a few of the fees but many of these deal in penalties. A parking ticket increase only effects you if you break the law. The other fees are minor compared to what many towns have had to do. I realize this an OPINION forum, but we should all try to be as accurate as possible.

Vending machine licenses - The vast majority are owned by people and business from outside of the community. They typically take away sales from other local establishments. And let's get it straight here it went from $25 to $100, this is not a huge sum. Also had not been increased in OVER a decade.

Liqour licenses increased - let's keep this one in perspective as well it went from $1000 to $1200. Sorry, but a liquor license is a luxury! There are communities that charge $5000 or more for these if your lucky enough to get one. Liquor establishments create vastly more cost than that in enforcement alone. And yes this one had not been changed in well over a decade as well.

And the BIGGEST miss leading statement here is that some how the Village is increasing property taxes. Nothing could be further from the truth. The village has decreased or held the line on property taxes every year.

Did you even bother to watch the board meeting where ALL of this was disccussed in GREAT detail for everyone? And guess what they discussed these things for over four months.

It sounds like you are one of those NONE residents that has been making money off the Ville for some time and not contributing to its betterment. I for one am glad that the village is shifting the burden away from property taxes and onto non-residents.

I guess your the NON-RESIDENT TARD here!

amen to that. everything has been improved that major noak is doing. he had to clean up the mess from the previous major. major joak, i am sure with your rental property here in romeoville, that you charge your tenants an arm and a leg to live there and im sure the amount of rent for your property is based on your tax bill every year. as everybody said before, the taxes for the school district increased, not the village taxes and this was aired through channel 6 for the past couple of month and explained over and over again by the village board that they are not raising the taxes. maybe you should sell your rental property and by another house were you live. f.y.i dont tell me plainfield is lower in taxes than rville. i call you flat out a liar.

Lets NOT lead people to believe the present mayor had to clean up anything from the previous one.....thats just plain UNTRUE.
The present mayor and board are simply following thru with projects that were started long before Noak got onboard.
Yes he's instituted some new things with committees and such .
The major projects you now see coming to life were begun many years ago.

I won't get into what was and wasn't cleaned up. That doesn't serve anyone any good at this point. But don't pretend it was all good before. That's just not true.

As for projects the vast majority of the projects that were started under the previous administration were completed shortly after the transfer. Most everything happening today was under the currrent administration, which is far more than the just committees. Its been more than 2 1/2 yrs now, get real. True the village hall/pd was designed under the past administration (which the current mayor was a member of the board), but the entire project was built completely under this administration. To the point under budget.

The old days are just that... the old days. Leave them there.

Sorry to burst your bubble..but Noak was NOT a board member when the village hall process started. Check into it if you wish.
Nor was he a member when the beautification of 53 began,Veterans Parkway,and numerous others. I agree ..blame helps nobody but giving credit where its due certainly can't hurt.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but he has been on the board since the formal process began. He was on the board when the land was purchased, the building design was authorized, and the the bonds were issued to build it, and has been there for the entire construction. Since everything I have read sets the process as formally begin in 2005 and since he was elected with the board in 2005 it would see that you are incorrect. As for the beautification of 53, almost everything that has been done on Rt. 53 has been done since 2005. And Veterans Prkwy only began 2yrs ago, while it was always a dream of previous administrations it didn't actually happen until now. So it seems you don't have your facts straight. It also seems you are the one having a problem of giving credit where it is do. Not to say that this administration is the only group of officials to get anything done, but one needs to give them their credit as well.

We need more lingerie bars in this community! It's amazing how many models discreetly take pictures of politicians with their cell phones and sell them to their enemies for a pretty penny!

You must be thinking of the old mayor. I hear the current one stays completely clear of the place.

Romeoville is one really mixed area. Some areas belong in Detroit and others Kentucky. Weber Road is a racetrack that provides some solid business areas. Visiting Romeoville is best done when your time is short there.

Nice assumption you make simply by passing thru.
Hopefully you don't make all your decisions without doing any research.
Its kind of sad actually. We never got the chance to be awed by your presence in our community.

Touche my friend..however that term FORMALLY..only means he was lucky enough to reap the benefits of previous hard work by others who layed the groundwork several years previous to him being there.
The plans for veterans parkway I know for a fact were scheduled long before Noak, beautification of 53 was as well.
