The bigger picture here is the fact the Sun Times pointed out that the company hired to do the roof job isn't a legitimate business- doesn't exist! That's where the fraud is! Can't wait till April 2015!!!

Only corporations are listed on Jesse White's website...What's really strange is that I couldn't find mention of the roof job in SD 103 Board meeting minutes for 2012 posted on their website...of course, the approved minutes for some meetings appear to be missing. Have to check again tomorrow to be sure, of course. Could have missed it, I guess. Haven't gotten to 2013 minutes, yet. Maybe it's there.

Not in 2009. Not in 2011.
BTW, while not one individual on SD 103 Board received any $$$ in campaign contributions from Lembke (Sun Times article) UCP party sure did. Wonder how much business the VOL has given them since 2009? And how much did they receive before they started contributing to UCP?
Your blaming UCP for purchasing at Hardware Store. How do you know if they recieved any money. Think they would tell you. Are you nuts.

Real easy to check who contributed all you have to do is check with David Orr's site. That's were I discovered that Reliable contributed to both the UCP and Citizens for Getty which he then gave to himself as rent. Real easy to use as influence in ignoring infractions or suggesting to people that it would be helpful to use certain businesses.

Try looking under campaign contributions on the Illinois State Board of elections website. That's how we know!

wouldn't the business have to be registered with the Village of Stickney. Would the school need a permit. Maybe it was never bid.

Funny - when I had a new roof put on, I had to have a permit and the contractor had to be registered with the village, be licensed and insured. So how does this get done without any oversight? Wouldn't be a thank you for the contribution, would it?

High school in Crystal Lake is currently fighting with that municipality over 50 foot high bleachers erected next to residences sans municipal approval. That school district is contending that they are exempt from municipal zoning/permitting requirements. Guess we may have to wait and see what the courts decide.

One thing, though, that SD 103 is NOT exempt from complying with is the Illinois School Code.

Could purpose of this leak to Sun Times be to "demonstrate" why Township School Treasurer's Office is "necessary"? If so, it's certainly generating LOTS of probably unintended consequences. But that's probably going to be a good thing...for taxpayers, that is.

I saw that too...sounds like her hand has been in the cookie jar for some time... She probably has been shopping at Ace on the taxpayer dime. But hey, they don't need to conduct an audit because if they do, looks like a couple board members will have to actually start paying for their home improvements!!! Crook county at its best

Yeah - it is possible that schools are exempt from local codes...they were exempt from local fire coded, as I recall...

Still can't find in the SD 103 Board meeting minutes where the Board approved hiring Lempke's/A-1/whatever to start work on the Edison School roof project budgeted at $36,000. Can anyone help me here?

And if the school board didn't approve that - with a vote in an open meeting - then who did and with what authority?

Just wondering if they are going to be serving liquor at the great village anniversary dance at the village hall? Is it really a good idea if they plan to do so? And will the police be keeping an eye out for intoxicated drivers leaving the dance?
