Two Chicago Policewomen weaseled out of Chicago to enjoy Park Ridge. We all know Chicago Police should stay in the Chicago City Limits in case of an emergency. I waited several times for Chicago Police to attend to an emergency. Many coffee venders are happy the Chicago Cops are out of Edison Park because the Chicago Police still think they are entitled to free coffee. Many Chicago Cops still flash the badge and get free McDonalds in Chicago. These two ladies should be immediately fired for dereliction of duty. A formal complaint was filed with the IPRA complaint Number 1048555. The police SUV number was 8411 and License Plate MP 6194. This happened at 100 South Northwest Highway in Park Ridge September 15, 2011 at 5:40 PM. Maybe they were getting Rahm Emanuel’s coffee. Photo by Patrick McDonough
Working for the City of Chicago requires some heavy lifting while onlookers watch you work. In fact today was no different, the City of Chicago and various agencies could have pitched in to help the taxpayers win a fight against a never ending battle against corruption. I admit I am a little upset because I spend much of my own time preparing cases, hours of computer work, preparing pictures, cds, and hours or research that is never paid for by the city. In fact if you want to improve Chicago, Daley and his Administration fight you the entire way. The payoff was great today again today because the two investigators, the only employees for the Department of Water Management actively enforcing the taxpayer’s safety won another court victory. Every single case has resulted in additional income for the City of Chicago and less for the Plumbing Inspectors with their bribe taking agendas. Every single case has been a victory for the City of Chicago and the taxpayers. The Water Department shows gratitude by shortening my pay and hours served.
On another matter, Mayor Daley and the City of Chicago quietly approved another three million dollar contract to locate utilities in Chicago. The last company Adesta, located in the suburbs, had the same three million dollar contract that ballooned to over eleven million dollars! I do not know how many times I went to a Peoples Gas Company job when Adesta mismarked the water service and the gas company pulled the water line causing flooding and additional damage. I always demanded 803 requests to recover the taxpayer’s money, but the guy in charge was downstate on other business.
This month the new underground utility company is feasting on millions of dollars of taxpayers’ money. The company is named Utility Resource Group located in Michigan, yes the state of Michigan. Mayor Daley should explain why Mr. Bigshot is sending Chicago Taxpayers money to another state while we starve and remain un-employed. Maybe Mr. Bigshot was his Michigan house and wanted to impress everyone on his ability to get a multimillion dollar contract to his friends. On the first day I found these people from Utility Resource Group, an employee showed up in a leased mini-van and had the entire Department of Water Management plat book on his computer. He makes sixteen dollars an hour with full health benefits, has access to the lives of every Chicago citizen. He does not need to live in Chicago and his company is not located in the flippin state. He does not need to pay Union dues despite doing the same work. This company does not have an office in Chicago, nothing. Daley must be insane; Chicago citizens are out of work. This company gets no furlough days, nothing! Mayor Daley, who set up this deal? Who got a cut? Any ideas? Why was the last company removed? When did the bidding process start? The job I was on did not need this company called or hired. If a Water Department foreman for the City of Chicago needs a private company called out to locate the water main, then Mayor Daley and his goon’s pick for foreman make Chicago the laughing stock of the world. How in the world can anyone justify calling a private company to tell a municipal employee whose job it is to know where the water mains are, where the water mains are? To really make matters more ridiculous, the low level dispatch employees have the authority to call these companies at anytime. Folks, this is a scam contract, a fraud, and a bad deal for Chicago Taxpayers. These people are going to go way over the contract and double the work the City Workers already get paid to do. Nobody from the department is verifying their work, WTF? I demand an investigation NOW. Patrick McDonough, Chicago’s most prolific Whistleblower.
