How about a BIG Thank You to all of the taxpayers - business and residential - that make all of the "accomplishments" (aka normal operations of the VOL) possible?
As for the land the park is built on - IEPA said it was contaminated (hence enrollment on Voluntary Remediation Program) and some - not all - of the contamination was remediated (removed or rendered harmless), the rest was covered with three feet of clean fill, so it is still there.
I'm also thankful for the folks who really make Lyons great: my neighbors, our library and all of the library personnel, the unpaid (and under-appreciated) people who have worked to make VOL better without looking for votes or self-enrichment - think Neighborhood Watch, the Women's Club, the Lions, the Mustangs, our Little League, PTAs, our churches, etc., and friends throughout the VOL.
I love reading these posts. For 291 pages there is constant complaints about the VOL administration not providing services to the community and wasting our money. Now to your own admission the services are being provided and the town is cleaning up, however now it is just no big deal because it is what they are suppossed to do. I remember when nothing was done for us lowely citizens, I called for years about my alley, my trees, and some of the roads. Under this administration I called and guess what all of my problems have been fixed. My raod wasnt replaced, but by patching the pot hole correctly it has held and hey I'll take that for now. My tree in front was trimmed and doesn't hit my house anymore, and the alley was leveled out. I agree that is what they are suppossed to do and it really shouldn't be something to brag about, but when the last guys did nothing for us I learned to appreciate what should be basic. I for one am happy with the changes in town and will not go back. I am quiet and keep to myself, but I don't forget the shaft I got for years.

just a comment. 1 I am not going to say you are wrong, but think that getty says he didn't do it, either. 2 since anyone can write something using anyones name, it would be hard to prove who wrote it.

Had a very nice young man come to my door this weekend. Good to know that we will have a choice in the April Election. That is, unless the Gettys try to get this group thrown off the ballot like last election- which cost us residents money. I like the Village Independent Party's (VIP) Candidates a lot. Pattie Grahovac-Wisneski for President, George Cokinis-Clerk, Dan Graunke, Dick Gatz and Jimmy Jenks for trustees. They all have my families votes! Bye bye Getty.
They need more voters, not just you. Not everyone thinks they are great. Gatz is a Turn Coat, Jenks not running.Smart man. Pattie has done nothing for all the years she has been on the board. Getty is the best candidate for Mayor. Don't like it, Get out of Dodge.

Dont' forget the president didn't win by a large margin only by 40 or 50 more votes, so don't get so cocky!!!!!!!!
