Chicago Shutting Down Before 9.09
Many city offices will be closed Monday for a reduced-service day as part of efforts to balance the 2009 budget.
City Hall, public libraries, health clinics and most city offices will be closed, according to a news release.
As part of the 2009 budget, and without pay for affected city employees, reduced-service days also will be held on the Friday after Thanksgiving and on Christmas Eve.
On the reduced-service days, the city will have only the minimum amount of staff for essential city services. The reduced staffing will not apply to police, fire or other direct public safety providers, the city said.
City garbage collection and street sweeping will not take place on Monday, with those pickups or routes expected to be delayed one day.
The 2009 budget expects to save a total of $8.3 million over the three reduced-service days.
$8.3 million dollars? That is not even a fraction of a taxpayer Goldman Sachs bonus.
What will happen to Chicago once they find out that the incoming tax receipts are MUCH lower than budgeted?
Welcome to Zombulation Nation... when politicians and bankers lie and citizens can't distinguish truth from trash.
Alstry will make this promise, once sales start increasing, incomes start rising, foreclosures start abating, bankruptcies start slowing, and jobs start growing.......if just three of these things happen, Alstry will become a BULL.
When we finally restructure debt so more income can be applied to innovation and goods and services instead of interest to insolvent banks to offset even more defaulting debt.
Right now America is shutting down at an accellerating pace due to an inability to service debt.
