We posted before and it was taken down? Who moderates this Topix forum? It was a simple question ... what is the Truth about the Meadows? Who OWNS the Course? What is the Revenue history? The expense history? Do the City , via tax revenue , pay for the Course?

As a business is it profitable ... if not, why not? should it be put up for sale? Who would buy it?

Idiot these are questions for your city council. Show your face at the next meeting to get your answers. Topix is not the right place thatís why you are the resident idiot.

Golf Course needs to be Closed or management needs to be taken over by Billy Casper Golf.

The golf coarse has been a turd on taxpayers for 25 years, has sucked money out of Blue Island residents . Has a proud history at city hall of hiding massive loss for a total of 25 years and they hide it as best as they can with deceptive accounting practices. Time to cut the losses NOW, sooner than later!!!

The Bl Finance Dept provided Kasperek with erroneous numbers which resulted in a false impression there was a small profit.

Utility costs including Water, Sewer, Waste were not included.

The golf couse is a waste of Bl taxpayers money. Those funds need to be put toward roadway repairs.

They can care less about this they look for real red meat stories to sell papers these days. I believe i have read some in the past about this matter of the Meadows way back. I have always quested why Blue Island government got into the golf game. Many golf courses around that are way better would not support this one in any way shape or form alway spend my money elsewhere.

Mayor Vargas needs to support Bl Taxpayers and not fund this failed business or any of the proposed increased spending.

Vargas should fund Blue Islandís roadways and future; not the twisted golf course.
