  1. Latest news from the Moretti’s move to MG. Village is bragging about the 120K it will receive yearly from sales and property taxes when this restaurant arrives. However, the village is giving back 75K per year from the purchase price of the land, so that leaves only a profit of 45K. Surely, this prominent location on Dempster should be bringing in more than that. Now, the village is paying out 45K to put in questionable sewers in the vicinity of the proposed restaurant, but this is probably a cover up to clean up the ‘special waste’ found there. Does naming it ‘special waste’ make it any less acceptable than hazardous waste?
    Why is the village paying to clean up Moretti’s land?
    The latest agreement on the Moretti’s purchase has withdrawn the Video Gambling and adjacent outlots. This was probably due to public disgust with the increase of gambling. Moretti’s wants to leave the door open to add it later, when possibly public opinion dies down and they can sneak it back in. If Di Maria is still mayor at that time, one can be sure he will do his best to help them do that.
    Speaking of this sewer project, the village claim it was the low bid of 5 companies replying to the open bidding. The company awarded the job, Des Plaines based Mauro sewer Construction Company bid
    $429,838. This company has only 4 employees and a history of political contributions. One has to wonder if the other bids were close and if the lowest bid was the only criteria for the award.
    I hope people are reading the Morton Grove and Niles Bugle, a free newspaper that reports my letters to the editor when the Morton Grove Champion wimps out.

  2. If only this web site could be distributed to more residents of MG. Perhaps, some of this material could be put into a format suitable for an ‘Opinion’ column in either the Champion or the Bugle?
