Town Spends $120,000 Of Taxpayer Money On Hot Dog Stand
HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - The Chicago Sun-Times has been keeping tabs on how Cicero town president Larry Dominick runs things in the Chicago suburb--and each investigation seems to be more bizarre than the next. The paper's latest probe found that a Chicago hot dog stand has been well taken care of by Cicero's taxpayers.
Dominick has already admitted to putting more than 20 family members on the town payroll, and to spending $500,000 on rubber chickens, pens and backscratchers with his name on them. Cicero officials defended the rubber chicken bill, saying they were promotional items for the town and that residents loved them. The Sun-Times, however, pointed out that Cicero didn't bother with a bidding process for promotional ite ms, instead doling out the contract to a business owned by a Cicero board member. >>>CLICK HERE TO READ MORE
