This is no surprise. The village has been wasting money for years and paying people for no show or occasional jobs at the expense of the poor taxpayers. When Nat Kagan was Mayor he took no salary. Now we have a Mayor and a Village Administrator with lavish salaries and very little to do. Are the taxpayers aware that these people sit at home watching television and collecting salaries. It is an outrage! Is it any wonder that we have a deficit with these characters running things. This is just the tip of the iceberg. There is absolutely no need for a Village Administrator. From what I have heard there are some very shady things going on. There is waste and corruption in Woodridge government. Everyone out there you all better wake up soon!

I am overjoyed that people are finally learning the truth about the incompetence of the people running the village.

How can that be! The Village of Woodridge charged a senior citizen over $1600 to mow his grass at his home property( once or twice), chop some weeds and pick up some wet carpeting thrown outside as he had his house on the market. Also there is no
evidence that the Village ever contacted the home owner of these pending charges. The man is a life long resident of the Village and was and is still
a resident in a nursing home. At the time, the Realtor's worker cleaned out some wet carpeting(frozen pipes, another $7,000plus charge) and deposited them outdoors. With actions such as these the Village of Wodridge ought to be flush with cash!
