Chicago budget for 2016.
« on: September 22, 2015, 07:47:02 PM »
Mayor announced his 2016 budget today. The city is in serious financial problems, thanx to Richie Daley the police/fire pension is 500 million short, school budget faces a like defecit. Mayor proposes a 70% tax leavy increase over the next four years. If not passed he threatens closing 48 stations and lay-offs in the hundreds. Anyone remember Prop 2 1/2 in Boston? Every 2 and 1 houses lost the engine, including Ford Dudley. Other houses were closed competely. Then we had a serious arson problem, if not for mutual aid Boston would resemble Detroit. This is one serious situation.
FAC 20 TASS 68-69 SVN. Hue/PhuBai , Boston Spark from 71-79, Chicago 79-15, Bloomington/Normal 2015- present
