Nice Job Charlie

Like it never snowed in April.

We didn't see a single plow, truck or grain of salt on the streets.

And neither did IDOT we suppose, leading to a thirteen-car-single-fatality accident early Saturday morning.

You know, if Charlie ran Streets and San the same way he ran his part of the Department....oh wait. He does. And it sucks.

Charlie Williams is no longer in charge of streets and sans.... Whoops, a little research should help. He retired last month

Why doesn't Williams have a
U.S. Bureau of Prisons number for
his antics on the job?

He was a deeply closeted hater as well...
But give him credit, he hated all
stripes and persuasions at least.

His reign at IAD was an awful one.

Double dipping togs. Lil Tommy B be looking for another 200 K plus job, he cannot make on his 160 k pension, after 10 years of post cpd 200 K jobs.

"Like it never snowed in April."

All these "command centers" full of phones and computers and giant video displays to connect real-time with every "next generation" color 3-D weather radar in the country, and no salt laid down.

I got more advance warning about the icing conditions than they did from listening to my little clock radio. I didn't go out.

He figured that it will all melt eventually. Why bother?

Never really gave a shit about the ex-IAD asshole Charlie. But how in the hell is he responsible for what happens on I-290. That's IDOT not CDOT.

Not to worry. Snow in April never lasts very long. It will be gone in a matter of days. No need to waste precious city resources and money.

Don't get IDOT and CDOT confused. CW is in charge of CDOT who has nothing to do with salting the expressways.

Which is why we specifically differentiated Streets n San vs IDOT. Go read it again. Comprehension is a skill - learn it

His predecessor was Tommy the Thumb Byrne, so their qualifications to runs S& S was driving a car on city streets on the taxpayer dime? But hey, they got to collect city pension number two somewhere.

Charlie Williams retired last month!
With another pension I'm sure.

While he was there he probable said, "It is not practical to train individual snow plow operators to respond to a snow storm."

Shame on the state for not being out, salting. A notable Chicago Chef, Jean- Claude Poilevy, was killed in that accident. He ran 2 very successful French restaurants, Le Bouchone and Le Sardine...RIP

The edens expressway was shut down as well early saturday morning for multiple accidents due to the state not salting. think there was like 15 accidents between peterson and old orchard road in the period of about 30 minutes starting around 1 am.

Usually in total agreement with chastising from SCC, however NICE JOB CHARLIE was a bit confusing to interpret. I think several of us were confused with the wording. But generally. NICE JOB SCC, your work is appreciated.

I hope the estate of the late chef is looking for a good lawyer.

Say Rauner...

Because you and the State Legislature HAVE NOT APPROVED A BUDGET there was no money for salt and overtime for plow drivers.

Is that who is to blame for this mess and these deaths.

Don't know who you guys are talking to or what you are reading, but Charlie Williams is still the S&S's Commissioner and has not retired!

Whoever said Charlie Williams retired just saw him on TV today April 12 so you're the one who needs to do a little more research, along with his title commissioner of streets and sans
