Why is it that greed and corruption continue to ravish our country. No government should take a property when the owner is doing everything that they should. This owner cares about her property and it is a CRIME by the Village to even try for demolition. I have researched this Village and they have "taken" other properties in this city. What is going on? This Village has also given "many" setback variances, so why is 40 feet so important to actually destoy an entire building an entire investment? Something isn't right here. I hope some legal firms join in and help this woman!

If this case you can't get your village to help you out.
My suggestions are:

1. Call Chicago Tribune ( What Is Your Problem?) Chicago Tribune will investigate your problems and take actions.

2. Or Call your favorite Chicago News and tell them your problems.

Hope this works out for you!

It is time for all of our villages to take actions and take more responsiblities.
Sorry Folks!
