City Council Votes Tomorrow on Police Academy

Tomorrow, Emanuel will be asking the City Council to approve spending $95 million for a new Police Academy that will include a new shooting range and a pool. Emanuel claims this facility is called for by the DOJ investigation of the CPD. Not true. The report calls for training to "ensure consistency with CPD policy and current law, particularly with respect to the use of force..." This could be accomplished in any of the many public school buildings that Emanuel has closed, and certainly does not require any new facility - let alone, one that will cost $95 million +.

Thoughts?

    Mayor Rahm Emanuel played hardball Wednesday after two aldermen used a parliamentary maneuver to delay consideration of a fund transfer needed to bankroll a $95 million police and fire training academy in West Garfield Park.

  • d3 NoHo

    Rental properties are the most likely reason btw

  • Agree with D3. I'd guess these are resulting from tenant complaints, especially when lack of heat is mentioned.

    Along similar lines, does anyone know what's involved in a Cook County Assessor's Office field check? Not 'inspection', but 'check'.It's one of the options on the appeal lorm for the current outrageous, blood-sucking reassessment. I checked it and submitted my appeal earlier this week, but now I'm wondering if I opened Pandora's Box.

Who's afraid of bankruptcy for Chicago?

Some of us Chicagoans are resigned to the inevitability of bankruptcy of Chicago. This study by a non-partisan fiscal research group gives courage to face the future.

https://www.truthinaccounting.org/news/detail/did-city-government-bankruptcy-hurt-detroits-economy

    Did city government bankruptcy hurt Detroit's economy?
    The chart below shows total employment from 2005 to 2017 in the Detroit-Dearborn-Warren metropolitan statistical area, compared to employment in the Chicago-Naperville-Elgin metro area. The chart indexes employment in both areas to July 2013 = 1.0, which gets both areas (one larger than the other) in the same neck of the woods in the chart and also allows you to compare the Chicago and Detroit metro areas since the latter declared bankruptcy.

    Chicago's fiscal condition is not sustainable with current tax receipts: the compound growth of pensions alone will inevitably soak up available revenue. Raising and inaugurating new fees and fines are insufficient to meet the need, and lenders eventually will refuse to extend credit. The property tax or a city income tax are the only viable alternatives, and either one or both will send the majority of residents into poverty or drive taxpayers out of Chicago and Illinois. We residents left behind will demand relief from the burden of financing city government; teachers and public-safety workers will continue to refuse real reform. Bankruptcy will enable the city to renegotiate terms of its pensions and debt.

  • Michael Archangel First - 13 Russian nationals; Next - US enablers

    @Dan Miller - Given past rulings by the Illinois courts relative to contractual obligation of the city to those pensions, I am afraid that the only legal option is bankruptcy protection. Although, that reality will be very cold comfort to those union members whose leadership negotiated those contracts with city leadership.
