Has Daddona and the Goodyear Blimp left the village board yet?

Jose, you have ABSOLUTLY NO CLUE what your talking about. The village never raised anyone's taxes in over 8 years. If you had a clue at all you would know your friends at the park district and the school board jacked up your taxes.... chauffeuring our no bid landscaper? All jobs completed by his company are small jobs (mainly water main break cleanup), jobs as such NEVER go out for bid ANYWHERE. Because they are too small a contract to put out for bid and need to be completed IMMEDIATELY. Double Dipper? Really? You sir are a complete and total imbecile. Your obviously a member of the Unity Party....
(insert very long YAWN here)
Alsip is increasing all of the property taxes 4.5 percent next year, because the Village needs to contribute more to pension funding and refinancing Bond money. Didn't Mayor Kitching say that the Village is in great financial shape? Then why is he raising our taxes. Can't he use the 5,000,000.00 that he said the Village has in surplus. My taxes are too high! and Mayor Kitching isn't doing anything to keep them from going higher. Oh yeah, he's putting up new street lights on Pulaski. Listen to the Village audio recordings and stay informed.

Maybe if you didn't have to pay the policemen on the village board and the Mayor's double dip pensions, it wouldn't be so high. These guys get their police and fire pensions plus their village board pensions.

Also, what about the gold cards at the park district that all of the trustees get, which costs the taxpayers thousands every year as they use the golf course, gymnastics for their kids for free, park programs, pool rentals, etc. for absolutely FREE. Somebody should FOIA the park records alone and see how much Daddonna, Quinn, Kleina, et al. use their gold status for. Here's an idea, why don't you take your gold cards and buy and underpriveleged, disadvanted family in town a pool pass for the upcoming year? THAT WOULD BE LEADERSHIP!

The village board members not only get their "pay" for being on the board, but also get stipends for attending committee meetings as well.

All of these tax increases are going to pay for the village board and park board perks.

They should truly be volunteer civic leaders like the library board members who don't get paid a red cent.

BY THE WAY, the street lighting project for Pulaski is GRANT funded and a fantastic idea geared towards attracting NEW BUSINESS!!!! Moron. GO TO THE ACTUAL MEETING, ACTUALLY BE INFORMED.
