Streets & San Shakeup

Picardi out?
  • The Daley administration is mapping plans for a break-up and shake-up of the Streets and Sanitation Department that could remove layers of field supervision, transfer key functions to other departments and sweep out embattled Commissioner Michael Picardi, City Hall sources said Monday.

    Last winter, Mayor Daley lowered the boom on Picardi -- and dispatched Transportation Commissioner Tom Byrne to Snow Command -- after the city spent $490,000 on snow removal during a relatively minor first-of-the season snowstorm.

    Picardi landed in the doghouse, even though a City Council rebellion subsequently forced Daley to reverse a cost-cutting policy that saw City Hall use less salt, plow side-streets during normal working hours to reduce overtime and skip side-streets altogether after minor snowstorms.

So Picardi does what every other S&S Commissioner has done since Bilandic blew an election over snow and Picardi gets fitted for the dunce cap. Then Byrne comes in and tells everyone everything is all right and pretty much screws up "Snow Command" for the rest of the winter, missing opportunity after opportunity to show the citizens the side streets will be plowed, which leads directly to the Chicago streets looking like 2003 Baghdad.

But don't worry - Picardi's headed back to his first love - Fleet. Wait until he gets a load of what they've done to it in the past two years.

Daley wants to put the 11th ward back in charge at Streets & San, but first he needs Tommy Byrne to wash the unpleasant taste of HDO out of his mouth that Sanchez was told to promote into power (by Victor Reyes).

Hey SCC, Picardi was the one that fucked Police/fleet up. Picardi and a jagoff by the name of Glenn Tatara were the ones that junked all the pool cars, decided that they wanted to put a new face on the Police department with the Chevy Impalas and do away with programs that were in place to generate money saving through salvage and part ecomomies. Before Picardi and Tatara EMMD purchased on average 400 new vehicles per year. They put a quick end to that! Squadrol replacement became a think of the past under the Picardi, Tatara administration. Please don't expect Police/fleet to improve with the return of Picardi.

They paint over a mural on private property and the Mayor, Mr. Modern Crappy Art in all the stations himself says it's no big deal. We should paint over some of the crappy art work in the new stations and see what happens. The Alderman admitted that he intentionally told Streets and San. to paint over the mural. so we have a clear violation of first amendment rights. Criminal Damage to property. So what is going to be done? How many millions is this going to cost the city.

In the last couple of weeks Daley has supported flying the flag upside down and violating a citizens 1st amendment rights. Welcome to China.

New York City Gets a Pension Plea
By CHAD BRAY

New York City Comptroller William Thompson Jr. is urging the city's pension funds to adopt the principles of a code of conduct proposed by New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo.

In a statement, Mr. Thompson said he supports the code and will ask trustees for the city's pension funds to "adopt those principles as part of their investment policies and practices."

Mr. Cuomo's office has been investigating alleged kickbacks in connection with the $122 billion New York State Common Retirement Fund. Six people have been charged criminally in the matter and two have pleaded guilty. Mr. Cuomo's office has issued subpoenas to more than 100 investment firms and their agents in the inquiry.

Separately, Mr. Cuomo sued two debt-settlement companies Tuesday, alleging fraudulent business practices and false advertising.

In a statement, Mr. Cuomo's said his office filed a lawsuit against Credit Solutions of America Inc., based in Richardson, Texas, in New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan, and filed a separate suit against Nationwide Asset Services Inc., of Phoenix, and several affiliates in state court in Buffalo, N.Y.

The lawsuits allege the companies engaged in fraudulent and deceptive business practices and false advertising in connection with their debt settlement businesses, he said. The complaints seek restitution and damages, and to prevent the companies from engaging in the alleged deceptive practices.

Doug Van Arsdale, Credit Solutions' chief executive, said the company was disappointed by the filing and disputes its liability. A Nationwide Asset Services official said the company's local attorney hadn't received a copy of the lawsuit and they are unable to comment.

From what I could see, Mike Picardi seems to have done a good job clearing the snow winter before last -- which was also a sixty-incher. I saw plows staging on the street at the first hint of an approaching storm on the radar; salt filled, lights flashing, driver has coffee, ready to go.

Picardi was up and on the radio with the troops at 3 AM during a storm, getting reports of conditions and progress from all over the city. "Yes, sir, Commissioner. No, sir, Commissioner."

Then last winter -- this "money, lots of money" budget-whining shit from the biggest money-waster in town. I've still got Ace wraps on both knees from a fall I took on Daley's unsalted streets.

You sick, twisted little yabble-babbling shanty-Irish motherfucker. Your entire clan looks like the drunk obstetrician squeezed your soft heads too hard with the forceps when he jerked you out -- eyes out of line, skulls bulging in funny places like something Picasso turned out on a bad day. The whole knuckle-draggin' bunch of yez should not be trusted with anything more complicated than a spade and a dollar a day -- otherwise, everything in the house gets stolen the second a man turns his back.

There may be other problems with Picardi/S&S, but this whole snow-clearance thing was 100% Daley's fault.

Maybe if they shut half of them off we could save some money. We don't need anywhere near that amount of light!

As for the garbage men; I don't know much about them since I have a private garbage collector, and the city has recently started taxing me on the container that the private company owns that sits on my property that the private company picks up with their own trucks and workforce. I'd stiff the city on their bullshit baseless fee, but it's assessed to me through Flood Bros so it's not like I can't pay and still receive service.

What a racket. I hope this city burns. I can't get out of here fast enough.

NAPERVILLE? Why do you have to go to Naperville? If you want to see how the snow is removed when it's done by the pro's, you don't have to go to Naperville. All you have to do is walk across Canfield into Park Ridge and see that when the pro's do it the streets are plowed curb to curb. Every single time it snows. Now compare that with Chicago where all they do is make a path right down the middle of the street. I beefed about this last winter. I live in the Talcott/Canfield area. Last winter I watched as the plow driver came by late at night and made four passes down my street. All right down the middle each and every time. Not once did he even ATTEMPT to get at least one of the cub lanes. Now keep in mind that we all have side drives and that nobody parks on the street, we all park on the side drive. Now please don't give me the BS that Park Ridge is smaller than Chicago and they can afford to plow the streets better. If the driver that did my street had made at least ONE pass at the curb line I would not have had about 2 feet of snow in front of my house for most of the winter. Just another example of why this city sucks and why I can't wait to get out!

Tidbits from sources:

#1. Daley has asked the exempts for 20, count them, 20 days w/o pay. Source says they have 10 days to decide whether to accept or resume civil service rank. Equivalent to a 7% pay cut.

#2. All civilian employees of the department are to be fired unless they accept 15 days off without pay. Their unions asked whether or not this would ensure job security, and the city said we don't know. They are now negotiating over it, but the federally required 30 day notices of layoffs are scheduled to be mailed out to all such employees at the end of the month (10 more days), with language saying you MAY be laid off, but not that it will actually happen.

#3. 38 Sgts to be named Thursday 21 May, with a start date in the Academy of Tuesday.

Since 021 has been turned into a dumping ground they might as well send over the Burger Queen.

OK tact boys and girls, Sgt and Lt your scholarship has come to a end. Try to get a good night sleep thinking about what watch you are going to. Pay back is a bitch.

Man I can't believe that you are still bitter after all this time. You must not have any life I feel sorry for you. As for them they will roll with the flow because that's the type of people they are, they came from the area 2 so how bad can the watch be in 021. You never know the new boss might just be a friend of theirs.

OT: Class of 30 Sgts to start 26 May. It's been 3 years since the test and they've made about 115 off the list.

5/20/2009 11:25:00 AM

Wrong!!! They've only made 88, that's right 88 sgts off the list that has been up about 3 years. Even if you score great on the test your odds on becoming a sgt now a days is about .00001%

This will be it for this list. Jody wants a new test!

But don't worry - Picardi's headed back to his first love - Fleet.


--------------------------------

I thought that Picardi's first love was himself......self absorbed schmuck.

Mike Picardi is and has always been a 36th. ward political hack. Banks has saved him on several different occasions when he has fucked up. The scandal with the ladies. The scandal when his brother was caught living outside the city after Lover Boy sponsored him for a city job, and on and on it goes with this jagoff.

Oh, man. I dug up --

"I think they're really 'hooked up.'

Electrical Contractors News

City Lights Electrical Co., Inc has just completed work at the Fleet Center for the Democratic National Convention."

...and 12 Ga. tells us that --

City Lights was created by a former 10th Ward (Vrydoliak, not Pope) Hispanic Deputy Commissioner from Madigan Electric...I mean Bureau of Electricity. I believe that his daughter was put "on the title" so that it could have both MBE/WBE certifications. (helpful for set-asides in most larger contracts)

As he retired, a number of large overhead & underground contracts just so happened to go to his daughter's firm.

...and someone else here said that they park their fleet of trucks in city lots -- while your marked squad gets ticketed on the street...

Whatta burg.

Look at what privatizing garbage pickup did to the CTA. Before the cost per month, all inclusive: salaries, insurance,pensions,vehicles, maintenance,gas,etc approximately $77,000.00 per month. Since privatization costs have doubled monthly.

021 is not a dumping ground- Doty suckered a bunch of PO's and Sgts to leave 006 and follow him to 021 to work for him. He told them he would take care of them when he became deputy...little did they know it would be a DEPUTY SHERIFF...haw haw haw.
Enjoy your retirement Commander Doty-we're reserving a phone booth for your retirement party.
