Breaking News - City Passes Some of Their Expenses to the County

By a vote of 8-3, the City of Peoria Council passed the Humane Shelter back to the County. Lot's of mean things were said by Van Auken and Sandberg about the County.

Thanks a lot.

Consideration should be given by the county to relocate the shelter to the 43 acre site at the county owned former Hanna City Corretional Center.

The non-dangerous inmates at the County jail and Juvenile center could be used as caretakers. Solves more problems than problems created at far less cost to taxpayers. Just the benefits of helping rehab the incarcerated, soon to be released back into the community, would offset the additional, if any, costs.

Will this happen? Most likely not. Do you know many movers and shakers who can think outide of the box? Oh, yes, unfunded museum, unfunded park district, ball park, money losing Riverplex serving Tazewell and Woodford County residents at Peoria City taxpayers expense, Cub Food financing, money losing Gateway Center, Damons's restaurant long gone and now occupied by a bureacracy, City $14+ million budget deficit, growing debts from the library and #150, etc.

Oh, one bright spot, I'm on the County Board and we have balanced our budget. SO FAR.
