Tax dollars wasted on legal fight we paid the cost.
Back in the 70’s I lived in what is known now as The Evergreen apt and back then it was a great place to live, as a kid I had a lot of fun there, but now it is a cesspool.
Five years ago is the same as today, any time of the day or night you can purchase crack, weed, meph, get robbed and get sex all in one house of debauchery.
The Joliet City council needs to get tough on the Evergreen terrace and its owners.
What message does it send to Joliet residents when laws are allowed to be broken, the city council goes soft and gives up on the attempt to shut down the Evergreen apts now, what about all our tax dollars paid for legal fees.
The message is clear: soft on crime and never finish what they start.
Ahh!! sounds about right don’t it..
The property that this place sits on could be utilized better as a home for battered women, a city civics center or any thing that would send a positive message to people of Joliet and to Will County.
Just think what these movie companies that have come to Joliet over the past few years have said about Joliet and think what new visitors to Joliet think on what they see when they have to go past the Evergreen apts leaving the the casino.
What is this place really costing the people of Joliet, describing it as Sec 8 housing further diminishes its image and lowers the surrounding property values and all the while there are them that would also have us believe that this place is ok as it is, It is time to clean house and it is time for the city to push the broom or the city council should get the hell out and let somebody with a backbone do it.
