Progress is being made on required uniforms for Chicago Plumbing Inspectors. I think this is a great idea. My credit to the new Commissioner at the Department of Water Management. I also think these guys should wear badges when they shake contractors down for money. The badges were taken back a while ago. I hope you like my suggestions for these Plumbing Inspectors. I also hope the OIG realizes many employees are made security guards when they cannot perform their duties anymore. When will the IG get their ass down to the water department and find out which guys are not able to climb stairs and inspect plumbing? Separate rules for the clout heavy as usual. Let’s get David Hoffman back at the Office of the Inspector General in Chicago now. Photo retouched by Patrick McDonough.
