THANK YOU FOR FINISHING THE PROJECTS THAT WERE STARTED BEFORE YOU TOOK OFFICE. THANK YOU FOR SEEING THAT OUR TAX DOLLARS ARE USED TO KEEP OUR TOWN LOOKING SPIFFY.

THANK YOU FOR THE CONCESSION STAND..THE NEW PARK,
BASKETBALL FIELD..THE HALLOWEEN "BURNING OF THE Ghoul"...for the dedication ceremonies on

Thank you outlines major accomplishments. Do you agree She Back?

I must admit a completed park is far superior to a mound of dirt. And if you said it was contaminated, then getting rid of it is even better.

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.
Thank You

``Not for Profit`` don't pay taxes !

Not yet...talk in Washington...big changes coming to them...like
tax issues...``big time``...was on the news this very am.

Library is funded by taxpayers...are u for or are u against having a District? You never did say !

If anyone is campaigning it is you...especially since you have
made issues on everyone of the organizations you listed. You forgot
School District 103.

For anyone who is interested in reading this message board for amusement...suggest you start with entry NO. 1 and read on.

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.
