What happens to PB funds when the project is put on hold or cancelled?

Seems several PB approved items have been placed on hold or cancelled. Seemingly 750 k in on hold/ cancelled items over 6 PB elections.

105k for 15 bike racks.
Bike lanes on Clark from Howard to Albion unknown $$.
Coblestone replacement cancelled due to cost.
Sheridan road pedestrian safety study was cancelled.

Looking at the PB site it is not clear what happens to allocated funds that are not used for the Democratically voted funds.

  • Bruce_ Comment by Live From Rogers Park, whom you've mute

    JL. I do not see on the PB website clear indication where the money was spent.
    If it is held in escrow or other reserve.
    This leaves ~750 k approved by voting and not accounted for on the site.
    Some of these projects date back yrs.

    It would be more transparent to show how discovery fees and other vetting processes consume up money.

It's hooker season again

They seemed to disappear as winter arrived. Just noticed they are drifting back into my neighborhood again. Two of them were actually sitting on the back steps (leading to the basement) of my building just before noon on July 4. I came back a couple hours later and there was a wet nap and an unused condom in a wrapper lying on the steps. Nice. Saw another one ambling down my street with a couple of male friends the next morning just before 6:00 a.m.

My question is, what's the most effective way of getting these, ahem, ladies out? Police? (311? 911?) Alderman? Any other suggestions?

  • There's already too much emphasis on sports as it is.

  • Why do you want to create homogenous individuals?

    Cheers to raising minimum wage, though. Wouldn't have thought you'd be on board.

Off leash dogs on the beach

There seem to be a lot of dog owners allowing their dogs off leash in public places like the beach. Just yesterday I could count 4 different owners letting their dogs run amok on the sand during my morning walk. One of them even did it's business and the owner didn't clean up. This is illegal, right?

Lost cat (Little Boy) found!

I posted this in the existing thread, but it's not sending me an email notification that a new comment was posted, so just in case it's not notifying anyone else - I'm posting it here.

I guess Judy's so happy and relieved - she hasn't been back here to update, so I hope she won't mind if I report that Little Boy is back home - and in pretty good condition! I know (like me) many of you take a very personal interest when pets are missing. This poor guy who was recovering from surgery was gone for two weeks, so this is an especially happy (and lucky) ending.

Welcome home, LB!

    Illinois Lawmakers Override Governor, Pass Budget For First Time In 2 Years
    Lawmakers in Illinois have enacted a budget for the first time in more than two years, overriding a veto by Gov. Bruce Rauner and overcoming a last-minute delay at the Capitol. The crucial override vote was delayed after authorities received a report of possible hazardous materials, prompting an investigation, The Associated Press reports.
    http://www.npr.org
  • Nick in Irving Park Condo Owner

    You're right. I blame Rauner for more than 2 years without a budget and numerous credit downgrades. Any time he wants to actually do something is fine with me.

  • It doesn't make sense to obsess over the mistakes "of the last 30 years." Focus on the politicians who are in power right now and what they can, can't, aren't or should be doing: Madigan and Rauner.

    It doesn't make sense to obsess over the mistakes "of the last 30 years." Focus on the politicians who are in power right now and what they can, can't, aren't or should be doing: Madigan and Rauner.

    Sure, the last 30 years was a period during which Democrats in the Assembly made a lot of stupid moves--but more than one Republican governor did as well. In fact, it was Republican Gov. James Thompson who made the first fatal decision leading to the current pension crisis (1989) and then Republican Gov. James Edgar was the one who cast the second fatal blow (in 1994) and then piled on with a series of horrible blunders. In both cases, these governors were working with the Assembly, but they were the governors responsible for the decisions that were made and they were proposing them.

    In fact, the entire pension crisis has unfolded exclusively from political decisions that were made under the two Republican governors in question. The state was set during the 1990s. (There's a good argument to be made that worse things tend to happen when the governor and the Assembly in IL are controlled by different parties.)

Albion at Glenwood closed illegally?

Albion at Glenwood closed by what appears to be an unauthorized block party. Street closed by blocking it with a car an some cones. There were not any no parking signs posted before the closure. Anyone know about this?

    I’ve known people who were really annoyed by block parties they weren’t invited to or notified about--but probably the neighborly thing to do would be to say to someone who looked like an organizer, “hey, i’m so sorry, i’m parked on the street and didn’t realize... can someone keep an eye on the kids while I back out of the block/drive around the bouncy house or the grill? Fun party!'
