How about some reporting on that ugly concrete tilt-up barn going up on Warrenville Road in Lisle where they cut down a couple thousand trees?

I'll make a general comment. Typically, I don't think people have a problem with what government workers make (in most cases, there are clearly exceptions that we read about daily). My main problem is the number of government workers. Public works is an essential service, so most of these jobs are probably warranted. But, the non-essential services (and the number of those workers) is what I have a problem with.

Like government "marketing directors" and PR!! Still can't believe our taxes are used to by government (Village of Lisle, Lisle Park District, etc.) to set up Facebook pages and pay employees to censor and delete citizen comments.
Thomas November 29, 2012 at 05:29 PM
George, that's one of the position(s). Another problem, is the number of units of governments in DuPage and throughout the state.

Posting while tired & short-tempered above. True that this is just a list of salaries with no other comment. Still, in the context of the past few years' barrage of attacks on public workers of all stripes, some of us need to start standing up for those who serve us. (And I am not a public employee, in case you're wondering.) In today's world, and in this area, the top wage listed here is just enough to raise a family and own a home and decent vehicle with a little savings & modest entertainment. The lowest wage is just enough for a single person with no savings. (Unless they have some miracle deal on housing)
