Tonight’s Committee of Whole meeting starts at 5:30 – not the normal 7:00 pm.
A transparency award is scheduled to be presented by the Illinois Policy Institute. It’s a WEBSITE transparency award, not a general transparency award.
Transparency is much more than a website! It’s not meeting in secret and violating the Open Meetings Act as well as not scheming behind taxpayer’s backs for things like a downtown hotel.
Did the Council even knew Lisa Madigan’s office investigated the Coliseum for Disability violations? Lisa Madigan – Coliseum
Lisa can’t find corrupt public politicians to prosecute or time to rule on Requests for Review, but she can find incorrect signage in bathrooms and benches that aren’t the right size in locker rooms! Celebrate now!
Note: Madigan’s letter is addressed to Sorling Northup, the Springfield law firm getting huge taxpayer bucks every month. The 18 page report above list 18 violations with 17 corrected. I wonder what that cost taxpayers! Tari? Mayor Transparency?
Tonight the Council will also discuss the new Coliseum managers – Venue Works. I found this funny:
I’ve cancelled settlement talks, on to court!
