has anyone gone by the new village hall after dark?? the lighting sucks. you have the orange glow of the street lights and then the bright white of the accent lighting on the building. it looks like some type of prison or something. also, just wondering how much the electric bill for that thing will be!! the jets can use that thing for a source of orientation at night.

First off you are totally clueless. Second you have no idea what you are talking about. Villages don't pay for electricity on their buildings. They get it for free due to the franchise agreements that ComEd is required to negotiate with them.

I do not think it matters who is footing the electricity bill, it is still a waste of the resource to have all that lighting on all night. My fourth grader recognized that waste a month ago.

clueless or no idea from you don't matter. this building and its lighting is a waste of taxpayer money and it looks like crap. anyone that says that it looks good should get some sleep.

Ehh were Americans, we were born to waste. Leaving the lights on has alot to do with liability since its a public building and the police department operates out of there, its a 24/7 facility so those lights will be on. Local parents will have to go there to pick up their delinquent kids and we need to make sure they can find it.

Deer Crossing Park is part of the new Village Hall Project and is located directly behind Village Hall to the north. The project is being funded in part through a $400,000 OSLAD Grant from the State of Illinois. The park site will include a playground for all ages with poured-in-place surfacing, swings, a net climber, musical chimes, an amphitheater, trails, and additional landscaping.--this is directly from the village website.im sure just like this project, the village hall received grants and bonds paid for this. going to the board meetings every two weeks give a lot of insights as to what project is funded by what, and you would be surprised how much money the village receives from other sources, not your tax dollars. and agin, look at your tax bill. the only thing that is high on your tax bill is the school district, village taxes went down. start a blog about our taxes going to the school district-and ask them why are they so high for the education our kids get. the village hall was long overdue, rville is getting bigger and if you have ever been in the old village hall-u know why we needed a new one. i myself welcome everything mayor noak and the trustees are doing for this town.it will only benefit us in the future.

Let's see how long it goes before it is defaced by the little gangbangers oh wait we don't have them according to the police. While were at it there is no oil leak, no housing bubble bust and a tornado did not rip through Streator last night. Keep your koolaide we know the invasion of roaches requires one big a$$ can of roach killer and someone with balls enough to spray it.
