Re: “Water + sewers = slush fund

Chicago homeowners without meters could threaten to hold a protest if water hikes aren't averted or modified.Depending on the public's agenda,it could include restoring free water to nonprofits.If homeowner demands weren't met,they would start using excessive amounts of water.They could call the protest "Clean Up Your Act City Hall " or something water related.

I think these busts are a way to keep suspected criminals off the street.Nobody will testify against them ,so the cops will arrest them on any infraction they commit.

Re: “A TIF Gift for Rahm

Community gardens could be set up or moved instantly if garden boxes were built atop plastic pallets.Such a program would allow setting up community gardens in vacant or under utilized parking lots too.

Re: “Separate, Unequal, and Ignored

I think if you solved the crime and economic development problems,segregation would take care of itself .People would move to areas with great locations and housing stock.Most people also aren't nearly as prejudiced the media likes to accuse of being.

Re: “From Farm to Food Desert

Have a wholesale market.Mobile produce vendors can go around neighborhoods and sell fruits and vegetables all over the place.
