AS I drive around Northern ILL, I see all these small towns that were struggling now grow into thriving communities with big box stores, movie theaters and new housing. Crest Hill seems to be full of vacant lots and store fronts. No wonder our taxes and water rates are always increasing. Do the residents care?

I was born and raised in Crest Hill and I like it just the way it is! Let our residents give Joliet and Romeoville their sale tax dollars. We don't need that money!

How much money did Crest Hill waste on the new street sweeper. All it does is push dirt around the streets?

The majority are going to vote to retain the ordinance with a 50% discount on tap on fees ($5,000) for who ever wants to spend $20,000 plus to install a fire sprinkler system and pay double for their home owner insurance and yearly inspection fees. Such a deal for the last fifty houses in Crest Hill.

This is what happens when your Police Dept doesn't focus on protecting a business district. Joliet has done the same thing since 1980. People shop where it is safe and business locates where they are protected. Cresthill is a toilet just like Joliet. Bunch of politically connected clowns that were given a charter for city status. Dupage County has one also it's called Glendale Hts.

Stay tune and watch the next City Council meeting to see how gutless the most of the alderpersons are except for one or two.

Crest Hill citizens have been paying an electric rate higher than com ed to direct energy for two months after their contract expired. Not one person on the city council caught this until a citizen complained. Way to go Mayor and council members!

Come on people in "power". Do something! This used to be a charming, inviting town now it's filled with rundown houses, empty storefronts and DRUGS! Close down the crap hole bars that are REGULARLY allowing drugs to come into the community. Wake up everyone. This town is turning into the classic example of what happens when drugs take over. No respectable business wants to move into a community where there is no regular commerce besides lousy bars and fast food. The good, honest business owners that are here are struggling because nobody has money to spend. Say I'm paranoid about drugs. Say that it's not the problem. Say there isn't a drug problem in Crest Hill that is becoming worse than other small towns in America. Say whatever you want but prove me wrong. It won't be long before people avoid going through Crest Hill out of fear because the area is so riddled with drugs and bars and crime. Give it time. It will happen.

For all you cry babies in Carillion Lakes I voted to stop any more trucking terminals from coming in Crest Hill. I was born and raised in Crest Hill, so vote for me next election. I need the money because I was fired from my last good job!
