Chicago continues to waste money on crazy sewer projects

Chicago Sewer Frame and Lid.jpg To put in simple terms, Mayor Daley is spending hundreds of millions of dollars in repair sewer systems to avoid problems in the future. Deadly chemicals are entering our water system as the contractors spay sealants into our waste water system. The old system of bricks and re-enforced concrete when properly installed lasts hundreds of years. So why are we coating perfectly good sewers with deadly chemicals? Because, Daley can and no-one will stop him. Did anyone release the contents in the buckets sprayed onto our sewer system? No. Are all the yuppies screaming bloody murder? No. Will these repairs fix the manholes like the one pictured above? No. Will these coatings repair existing broken sewers? No. Will someone get rich? Yes. So while Daley and the goons split up these contacts, our cars will be destroyed by broken basins and big holes all over the city. Again, the repair that needs to be done is put on hold. Arrowboard and barricade companies are making a ton of money renting to Chicago gathering dust on streets. The City of Chicago is out of barricades to cover new holes in the street and private contractor are stealing these barricades for use on their personal jobs. I guess when you have a couple of decades of hiring scams, everyone pays, and pays. My future story is how city workers got screwed last Friday with no pay while privates cashed in!
