What a Deal!

  • Under pressure from the City Council’s most powerful alderman, an Ohio contractor has agreed to slash by 25 percent the price it charges Chicago to transport dead bodies.

    Outgoing Chief Procurement Officer Montel Gayles announced the price cut — from $915-a-body to $690 — at a Finance Committee meeting today during which Chairman Edward M. Burke (14th) demanded to know why Chicago was paying more for the grisly service than any other government agency in the nation.

    Dallas pays $94-a-body. San Antonio pays $125-per-cadaver. The Cook County Sheriff’s Police pays $250-per-body.

So we're still paying almost three times as much as Cook County, over four times as much than San Antonio and nearly seven times as much as Dallas to remove the dead.

What makes dead Chicagoans worth so much more?
  • The stretchers GSSP use don't look any more comfortable than a standard ambulance stretcher (not that the deceased would notice).
  • The vans used for transport seem to be a standard mini-van without spinners, rims or top-of-the-line sound systems (again, not that the stiff would be grooving to the oldies).
  • Not to insult the guys hauling the dead, but they don't seem to be Ivy League graduates who might be able to demand a higher salary based on their credentials.
All we can figure is that once again, taxpayers are getting screwed, even when they're dead. And the City Council has the nerve to call this "savings" since they reduced the previous 335% increase by a whopping 25%.

Note to media - find the Daley connection. There's got to be at least one.

The connection? Try this one from an old Trib Article.

City regulators have been accommodating to GSSP, which last year hired the law firm of influential developer Peter Bynoe to represent it on legal and lobbying matters with the city. Bynoe, a onetime Daley appointee to the Chicago Plan Commission, made a pitch on Higgins' behalf to Yerkes' boss, Chief Procurement Officer Barbara Lumpkin, when GSSP was bidding for its new deal last year.

Heres a November 2008 clip from a Dayton, OH newspaper. Now we know what GSSP Enterprises owner, 35 year old Brian Higgins, is doing with the money he is stealing from Chicago:


The cocktail menu was assembled with the help of Chicago mixologist Michael Rubel, who works as a bartender and bar manager at the swanky Wicker Park lounge Violet Hour (www.theviolethour.com). Rubel has continued to come to Dayton once a month to help train the staff and update the signature cocktail list, explained SideBar's owner, local entrepreneur Brian Higgins. Rubel will be in town Thursday, Nov. 20, to help roll out the new fall/winter cocktail menu that will be available Nov. 24.

While SideBar does offer visitors an incredible tangy trail mix that Higgins discovered at the luxury hotel Peninsula Chicago, it's the only food the bar offers. Higgins said he hopes by the end of the month to have a limited food menu including paninis and small cheese plates. Food would certainly be a welcome addition.

If GSSP Enterprises can transport a corpse for $75 in Dayton, who gets the extra $615 for each Chicago transport?

Why the 820 percent increase?

Does the City get an additional discount if the cadaver is transported to Burr Oak or other landfills?

Montel Gayles is widely regarded as just another inept Daley political hack.

FOP should use this as negotiation leverage by "offering" to have CPD do the removals like we used to.

As usual the city pays twice as much as what is normally is charged. Funeral homes in the city pay removal services about $300 for transfer a body. These services employ licensed professionals not the degenerates that GSSP use.

I know several funeral directors that were going to bid on the work for $300 a removal but someone in the city added in the requirement to have a $1.2 M mass disaster van. That knocked all of them out of the bidding. All GSSP had to say was that it was planning to purchase one. To this day, GSSP does not have a mass disaster van.

Rumor had it that this guy from Ohio was somehow connected to Joyce or Burke. And so the fleecing of Chicago taxpayers continues unabated.

Reduction? That doesn't make sense. In private industry they would have told them either we pay the reasonable and customary rate that other municipalities pay or we'll fire you and get another company. Seems like Burke put on a little show for the taxpayers, and not a good one at that. This is a perfect illustration of their perceived sense of entitlement because someone else is footing the bill.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1201171/Police-given-powers-enter-homes-tear-anti-Olympics-posters-Games.html?ITO=1490

Police have been handed 'Chinese-style' powers to enter private homes and seize political posters during the London 2012 Olympics.

Little-noticed measures passed by the Government will allow officers and Olympics officials to enter homes and shops near official venues to confiscate any protest material.
Breaking the rules could land offenders with a fine of up to £20,000

Civil liberties groups compared the powers to those used by the Communist Chinese government to stop political protest during the 2008 Beijing Games.

This scam is right up there with the affordable housing rip-off in the Maxwell Street / University Village District where 50 of 187 taxpayer subsidized apartment units were sold to people that never lived in the units but just "flipped" 'em.

In Monday's paper there was a story of an Orland Park teacher who got three taxpayer funded downpayment subsidies to buy three of these taxpayer funded developments built to provide affordable living for people making under 125% of the average income for Chicago wage earners in that neighborhood.

Thing is, the teacher never lived in either of the properties that he bought for something like $170k, $220k and $440k, (aquiring same via mortages and using same as collateral presumably) yet the article says he made a "promise" to the bank holding the mortgage that he would live in the unit which he did not.

What's the citys position? Some city suckass was quoted in the article as saying, "No laws were broken.". What about lying about living in the unit/s!!!

I love the circle jerk logic of the rat bastard Chicago politicians. With something like the Amusment Tax as it is clearly a tax for "enterance in to an event" Mayor Kleptomaniac wanted the courts to interpret (I emphisize interpret) the spirt of the Amusment Tax to also apply to the the transfer/sales of PSL licenses for the rights to Chicago Bears tickets. Yet with this shitbird Orland Park teacher screwing Chicago taxpayers so he can get taxpayer funded downpayment dollars without fullfilling the spirit of the screwball program, that is; actually occupying the unit, the citys position is, oh well, the law is the law and it must be followed not interpreted. No laws were broken and now after taxpayer fleecing we have taken steps to EXPLICITLY require occupancy of the units to participate in the program.

The $$$$ pissed away by Daley and his people is truly mind boggling.

Hey print media why don't you print out the cost, item by item on an entire two page spread the millions - billions of dollars pissed away as a result of Daleys theft and/or ineptitude. Take 'em line by line: Millenium Park, Tadin Land deal, Meigs Field, Bensenville Lawsuit, O'Hare minority contract scam, Duffs deal....

"The Gates gate . . .
Police Supt. Jody Weis has decided NOT to weigh in on the arrest of Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. by Cambridge police -- and the subsequently scaled-back "acting stupidly" criticism of cops by President Obama.

Translation: Quoth police spokesman Roderick Drew: "The superintendent is taking a pass. He doesn't know the facts of the case, and he doesn't want to have to backpedal as others have done in this case."

Apparently, Sneed is at it again, trying to build some sort of positive spin on our Bumbling Boss.
If the President now realizes that HE should have kept is mouth shut on this LOCAL ISSUE that became NATIONAL, whatever gave WEISel the idea that anyone would be interested in the least about what he would have to say about this?
He's even less qualified than the non-English speaking maintenance crews that clean our stations to make a statement about this (old) news. Someone is clearly working overtime to keep Water-Head's name floating around in the Sneed column. Hope they get the message that it's a lost cause. While we all hoped (briefly) that Weis would be a positive force for change when he arrived here, he quickly proved to be an unprepared buffoon, nothing more than another puppet for Shortshanks.
Sneed, it's not like anyone here on the blog would take your hack column seriously anyway, but PLEASE try to find someone else to try to build up into the image of a hero (or capable leader) in your column, Weis will never be seen as one in this Department. When he leaves, his appointment here will be viewed only as an extreme embarrassment, not only to the Dept, but to the FBI as well (so much for their 10 wk Command training sessions, it certainly did nothing for WEISel). No one is buying your BS here Sneed, and it's really doubtful that your "faithful readers" are either. FREE COZZI!

All my employees will wear I LOVE MAYOR DALEY t-shirts and my vans will carry inspirational messages from Richard M. Daley in large LED signs on top, bought from an LED sign company on Halsted St in Bridgeport.

My vehicles and my business will be insured by a Daley run insurance agency, I will list blood relatives of the Daley or Vanecko family as the corporate officers of my company but they will all have Tony Soprano jobs: they don't have to show up to actually do anything.

And I will paint the Chicago/2016 Olympic logo on the sides of my trucks and all body bags will also carry the Chicago/2016 Olympic logo.

As an added bonus, I will do crime scene/disaster/natural death cleanup for a nominal fee provided I am the only one licensed within Cook County to do this.

I will become wealthy and will deny all knowledge of using any political influence and will swear an oath of allegiance to Mayor Daley and I will take the Robert Sorich Oath of Silence should some dumb fuck prosecutor make a mistake and indict me.

“I am very happy to welcome our newest members to Local 727,” said John T. Coli, Teamsters Local 727 Secretary-Treasurer. “GSSP provides a crucial service to the City of Chicago, and its employees will now get the respect they deserve.”

GSSP workers transport corpses to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

“The unanimous vote proves that these members are motivated to get changes made,” said Paul DiGrazia, Teamsters Joint Council 25 Organizing Director. “Now that they are Teamsters, they will be able to improve their working conditions.”

Teamsters Local 727 represents approximately 5,000 members working as auto livery chauffeurs, funeral directors, embalmers apprentices, ambulance drivers and helpers, taxicab drivers, miscellaneous garage employees, car washers, greasers, polishers and wash rack attendants in the Chicagoland area.

Do you remember this? In 2005 GSSP f-d up and mixed up bodies and blamed the morgue. Other articles have quotes from GSSP employees saying they were tossing up to 6 bodies in a van at once, amongst other violations such as no body bags, overcharing the city, etc. The owner Higgins denied this and fired those employees. Anyhow, GSSP ended up backing out of the contract due to their mistake, and Daley hired them back in 2006 at a higher salary. Whats up with that?
There is definitely more to this story.

CHICAGO (STNG) ― The Daley administration is apparently having a tough time finding a contractor to handle one of the city's most unpleasant tasks: picking up dead bodies.

A three-year, $1.4 million-a-year contract -- at the center of controversy after a mix-up that sent the wrong bodies to funeral homes -- is being re-bid for the third time in eight months.

City Hall has also reversed its earlier decision to divide Chicago into two geographic areas and select a different contractor for each region.

Instead, Round 3 calls for a single contractor to transport bodies from death scenes or hospitals to the medical examiner's office. Funeral homes are responsible for the final leg of the journey.

Brian Higgins, president of GSSP Enterprise, the city's existing contractor, had argued that dividing the city into two regions would have opened the door to inconsistent, inexperienced service and to funeral homes with a blatant conflict of interest. City Hall apparently agreed.

"Funeral homes have been known to hustle bodies -- to lead families into going to their funeral home or to a home they're affiliated with," Higgins told the Chicago Sun-Times earlier this year.

Karen Bates, a spokeswoman for the Department of Procurement Services, offered no explanation for the city's about-face in bids due back next week.

She would say only that the contract is being re-bid -- for the third time since December -- because two of the three companies vying for the business submitted bids "deemed non-responsive."

The specifications stipulate that there be a "primary and secondary" selection to prevent dead bodies from piling up in the event that the primary contractor is unable to perform. So the city had no choice but to re-bid the contract, Bates said.

The Ohio company at the center of the body mix-up agreed to terminate its $1.4 million-a-year contract early. Higgins said he was losing money on the deal because City Hall overestimated the number of bodies.

As for the body mix-up, Higgins said, "I transported two bodies that particular day. They were both properly tagged. Somehow they got released to the wrong funeral homes."

Nothing to do with the police?

Except that almost every one is potentially a piece of forensic evidence, often removed from a crime scene.

I wouldn't say having squadrol crews do it as a matter of routine is a good idea; but perhaps a group of properly trained, equipped and paid volunteers in the Forensic Services Division would be better than this "service".

Hell are there not at least 10,000 trained officers on your department maybe one of you guys should get the goods on him and while at a press conference walk up to him and cuff him. Hey somebody out there has all of his dirty secrets do an investigation and lock him up! Then maybe Chicago will become a safe haven again!!!!!

Here's how it is:

Don't think there aren't about 9000 of us that wouldn't love to be able to do it ! ! ! (the other 1000 are on his personal security detail!).

The Inspector General, who investigates city corruption, does not have the authority to investigate the Mayor or Aldermen thanks to Burke and Daley.

The Attorney General is Michael Madigan's daughter who will not investigate political corruption, particularly when it involves her daddy, or "Uncles Richie or Eddie".

The States's Attorney's office is controlled by the Daley Crime Family who doesn't want to be investigated. Ditto for the Chicago Police Department.

That leaves the U S Attorney, a branch of the Dept of Justice. They are the only ones who investigate this cesspool of corruption known as the Democratic Machine, the State of Illinois, County of Cook, and the City of Chicago.

While they regularly seem to be prosecuting AND convicting our local politicians, they need triple the # of investigators to be able to cut through Daley's and Burke's plausible deniability.

Like on a drug spot, as soon as the players are locked up, a replacement is in place within days.

016th District Informational E-Mail #9
“Shots Fired by Police”

Dear Fellow 016th District Residents,

On 27 July 2009, there was a police involved shooting incident in the 016th District in the area of Devon & Milwaukee. A brief summary of the incident is as follows.

At about 1030 hours, police were assigned to a 911 call of a “Domestic – Man with a Gun.” The first unit to arrive observed a man holding a gun and struggling with a woman on the street. The officer exited his vehicle and ordered the offender to drop the gun. The offender refused. As he attempted to enter his home, the offender raised his gun and pointed it at the officer. In self-defense, the officer fired a single shot. The offender was not hit and entered his home. The officer pursued him into the residence and subsequently made the arrest. The offender was transported to the hospital for minor injuries he sustained during the incident. No police officers were injured. The actions of the officer were confirmed on his vehicle’s in-car camera system.

We should all be proud of the officer’s heroic response and take comfort in knowing that the men and women working in this District are prepared to take the steps necessary to ensure the safety of our families.

How about every district can hire thier own removal company. The district commander can hire them. Must be a flat fee of say 200 per body, then the service is always close in the district ready to take the job. Or how about give the p.o's the job back and 3 or 4 hours cu time (non FLSA) for every trip to the morgue with a body or bodies (sometime you haul more then 1) Still less then 700 bucks the city pays.

Sounds like a good job for the community service crowd to do!

If you get community service instead of jail time, you get to pick up bodies under the supervision of the medical examiners office instead of picking up debris by the forest preserve.

Or after Blago pleads guilty, let him do it. He has so many skeletons in his closet that he won't mind picking up a few.

All the money the city wastes and today I learned that one of the best programs we use is being shut down. The Anixter factory program has been a successful alternative school and job program thats served probationers for 22 years . It is by far the most successful program I have used.It has helped get kids out of regular high schools and put in a program where they are held totally accountable.We are notified if they are tardy, truant, or misbehaving daily. The north side judges( and I would say they are good judges) love this program because it's successful and they will appear in court on violations.
I guess the good people at Anixter who were truly trying to do the right thing and were successful at doing it just didn't have enough clout.

I doubt this is true and no member should accept this if it is. The city owes us whatever the contract would have been if it was settled in a timely manner. I'll take the raise, but I'll also take the retro that I am owed as a result of the city dragging it's feet in our contract negotiations. That is 3.5% per year not in our pockets because the city failed to negotiate in good faith. If i don't get whats owed to me, I will NEVER generate a cent for this shit hole city! Hopefully all of the patrolmen involved in this contract should feel the same.

NYPD was one of four cities not receiving fed money for cops. Look at the reason why. NY is is much larger than us, and their mayor can manage a budget under a weak economy?



Rep. Peter King of New York, the senior Republican on the Homeland Security Committee, criticized the COPS decision. "It is disgraceful for New York City to be shut out just because the NYPD is doing such a great job under trying circumstances and Mayor (Mike) Bloomberg is doing such a wonderful job of managing the city's finances," said King, adding that the city "is the No. 1 terrorist target and should not be penalized for its success."

Stockton couple removes dead bodies for the county, funeral homes
By Ross Farrow
News-Sentinel Staff Writer
Updated: Thursday, July 31, 2008 6:27 AM PDT

San Joaquin County pays Herring $90 for each body he transports. Two years from now, it goes up to $95, and in the fifth year, it'll be $100 per case.

Herring charges funeral homes more than he does the county, but he wouldn't disclose how much.

"The sheriff gets the best rate because they give us the most business — two a day," Herring said. "And I have a five-year contract (with the county). I know I will have a job for five years."

Although he has been in the body transport business for 15 years, including 11 with the county, Herring says he isn't hardened to seeing someone who has passed away.

"If it ever stops bothering me to a certain extent, I would quit," he said. "It's important to have compassion and feeling. Our job is helping people.

"Yes, it can be difficult, but it's important, and it needs to be done well," Herring said. "We're not looking for compliments, but we're not looking for complaints."

I am a former wagon man. I will do it for $500.00 a body, will hire only minorities who vote and I will kick back $100 a body directly to Ed Burke and he can do what he wants with it.

All my employees will wear I LOVE MAYOR DALEY t-shirts and my vans will carry inspirational messages from Richard M. Daley in large LED signs on top, bought from an LED sign company on Halsted St in Bridgeport.

My vehicles and my business will be insured by a Daley run insurance agency, I will list blood relatives of the Daley or Vanecko family as the corporate officers of my company but they will all have Tony Soprano jobs: they don't have to show up to actually do anything.

And I will paint the Chicago/2016 Olympic logo on the sides of my trucks and all body bags will also carry the Chicago/2016 Olympic logo.

As an added bonus, I will do crime scene/disaster/natural death cleanup for a nominal fee provided I am the only one licensed within Cook County to do this.

I will become wealthy and will deny all knowledge of using any political influence and will swear an oath of allegiance to Mayor Daley and I will take the Robert Sorich Oath of Silence should some dumb fuck prosecutor make a mistake and indict me.

How about it Ed, can I get in there and help the boys out? Fuck them guys from Ohio or wherever, let's keep Chicago business right here in Chicago.

I have gone to Cabela's in NW Indiana twice in the last 3 months to buy ammo. They have been out of 9MM both times.

The sales clerk stated to call first. He said they put out a pallet of ammo in the aisle and it's gone in an hour.

Everyone fears the Obama administration is going to implement a tax on ammunition. If they can't take our guns away, they'll take our ammo away (imagine a tax of $100.00 a bullet)

I just went to Shore today to buy some duty .45 ammo to qualify and they have none. Call before you go there to buy ammo because they might not have what you want. Dude said they have enough 9 mm and it's because people have been coming in and buying 20-30 cases at a time. He also related that the last time the US had a President from the State of Illinois there was a civil war.

No, they will tax primers and control the primer factories. The liberals are buying up the primer factories and thus will control ammunition. It is a liberal plot to control primer manufacture.

Stop the liberal takeover of the primer industry! We will be forced to use flintlock muskets and pistols! I am building my trebuchet now so I can fling hot burning Greek fire on the liberal pinko bastards when they come for my guns! Damn liberal pukes!

Excellent clip. And about time. I hope the momentum keeps up and there is a renewed appreciation and respect for the police in this country as a result.

The lowlifes have had access to the media and microphones for too long. It's time for priorities to return to their rightful and logical place.

As educated as Gates is, he reacted immediately to the lowest common denominator, and that is that many older black folks are seething with anger towards whites and have utilized and maximized the use of the race card to vent their frustrations, which honestly were justified at one time, but not anymore, or at least not to that degree. Many people like Gates, Jackson, Sharpton are dinosaurs re-living the 1940's and 50's over and over in an MTv world. They really need to resolve their personal issues and stop foisting them on a society that no longer reflects the images and feelings they refuse to let go of. Further, I sometimes wonder if many prominent blacks (like many of our Chicago politicians) have risen not because of their drive, ethics, morals, intelligence, etc but by crying racism. I don't think anyone can argue that the use of racism has reconfigured many social and corporate institutions by the veiled threat of legal action due to racism, whether justified or not. And I don't see how that benefits ANYone. You want equal rights, then you have to be equal and that means not having an advantage because of the color of your skin.

I also wonder how Gates feels now that his friend Obama, the first black president, has stepped in it because of his hissy fit. Funny, that Gates will go down in the history books for this one as the classic reaction to a white male authority figure by a black man and perhaps for tarnishing the reputation of a president in the eyes of many. As the female officer said, she will not vote for Obama again. I wonder how many others feel the same.

Thanks for sharing the link.

You two hair-splitting goofs are a couple of jags. You are like Clinton. It depends on your definition of the word "from".

Lincoln was born in Kentucky, but ran for President as a son of Illinois and his last elected office, before becoming President, was in Illinois.

Reagan was born in Illinois, but ran for President as a son of California and his last elected office, before becoming President, was in California.

Obama was supposedly born in Hawaii, but ran for President as a son of Illinois and his last elected office, before becoming President, was in Illinois.

So the people at Shore were correct. Before Obama, there was a civil war when we last had a President "from" Illinois.

You two hair-splitters are a couple of idiots. You must be a couple of the college educated jerks we have been hiring. Sad.

I hear there is a catch, city will pay Ohio company over $300,000 to agree to lower the price. I think Procurement forgot to tell Burke that part. Police will be doing removals by September when Burke finds out. Mark my words

Brain Stem, they said from Illinois not born in Illinois. Both Lincoln and Obama were born some place else but both were U.S. Senators that represented Illinois.

3.5 for 5 years no retro
how does that affect pension for officers that just retired

7/28/2009 06:50:00 PM


Not a bit. No retro means the figures used to calculate your life annuity will not change. You got what you are going to get, and no more, no less until you get your yearly bump for being 55 and up. Sux for you.

Of course they plan on taxing ammo out of sight. How the fuck do you think they'll make it safe for Obama/Sebelius to forcibly abort your grandchildren and euthanize you when you're old?

What about the interest on all that retro cash??????????????????

You're joking right?
Banks will pay you .5% on any $$$ you have. So lets say 2500 retro. Your interest will be $12.50. Go buy a 6 pack.
