The Bully and the Meetings

how-to-stop-bullying1

Well, what an interesting board meeting tonight.  I was glad to have been able to speak, and to be in attendance during the duration of the meeting.  I’d like to offer a few comments, since we simply can’t make comments during the meeting.  What I find supremely interesting is...

VOTE OF NO CONFIDENCE

Vote+Of+No+Confidence+424127_226493830782362_17281831

Some may say that a Vote of No Confidence is largely a ceremonial thing that has little meaning and no effect.  But, I believe that in it’s basic form, the public truly does listen to what other residents think, and are capable of taking something as ceremonial as a...

Thoughts about Openness

I’ve been thinking lately about the progression of this site, and of the ultimate goals that I had in starting it and maintaining it.  I know that there are some who don’t believe that my reasons are as lofty as I have suggested they are, and who were concerned...

Welcome to 2014

After a nice time away from the hustle and bustle of the suburbs, we are ready to get back to work.  It’s always nice during the holidays to take some time away from everything with your family and go somewhere.  I hope that everyone reading this, if not able...

Public Speaking

As most know already, I intend to speak tonight during the public comments.  I’ve managed to get my comments down to 5 minutes, although I’m sure I could fill quite a few more.  I look forward to seeing you all there tonight.  As a preview, I’m posting here the...

Welcome to my second installment of my discussion on our Budgetary Calamity.  This one also focuses on the General Fund.  We’ll get to the Water and Sewer and other funds that the village uses as time allows. After going on this journey with me, you’ll probably come to the...

The Silence of the Guardians

silentknights

When we move into a village, we often take for granted things which we have come to expect from society.  When you consider that the first working telephone service in the U.S. was put into service in the late 1870’s/early 1880s, 9-1-1 is not a very old concept, in...

The Big Bad Unions!

Big-Dawg-590-LI

It’s all because of the unions!  That’s right everyone, the big bad unions have swooped into the village and are throwing their extremely large, corrupt weight around in attempt to take over control of the village – and next, the world!  Seriously, the village board has already claimed to...

Time for a change in Management?

Change-Management1

The Illinois Municipal Act, which is what rules and governs our town’s ability to be a village, has a great deal of information and provisions that empower you and me, the “electors” to participate in the process.  But what happens when the village trustees won’t return our phone calls...

Who is our Village Manager?

Portrait-VillageManager

We know who our trustees are – they live in our town and are a resident like us.  Of course, only 1 of our trustees lives on the east side of the river, and even then it’s in old-town, not the east side like some of us.  However, we...
