I hope that by now all Cicero residents have visited the Municipal Hall to fill out the initial damage assessment form. If we get any funding from FEMA, residents who fill out this form will benefit. Please fill out this form a.s.a.p today July 26 is the last day to do so.

Everyone in Cicero, prepare to be flooded every single time it rains from now on! We are closing every single one of our flood gates every time it rains. We don't care if next time it rains, you get *10 feet* of sewage water in your basement, we got Asian carp in County waters, and when there is an invasive aquatic species in Cook County waters, every single resident, innocent or not, will pay through the forehead! Anyone who tries to fight to change the government will have their homes and posessions confiscated and auctioned off by the County, plus will face 1 year in Cook County Jail. We are not a group of trolls, we are the staff at the Metro Water facility in Stickney! And we mean what we say. Try to sue us, and we will throw your ass right out of your home! And we will also raise your property taxes by no less than $2,500 a year.

We have welded all of our floodgates and locks shut and removed all mechanisms that open and close the gates. And to ensure that nobody tries to open our flood gates, we have also called in the Illinois and US Army National Guard to patrol our facilities, and we now have no less than 350 armed soldiers at one time patrolling the entire sewage treatment facility with orders of Shoot to Kill any and all trespassers. That's right. A warning to everyone out there, if you trespass on our property, you will be immediately fired upon and taken down with maximum lethal force.
