Not that I'm keeping track. Wonder how much the legal fees are, so far.

The council also approved payment of $6,825 to Robinson Engineering in connection with the proposed casino license for Calumet City. The services included research of the company's own files, preparing exhibits and attending a meeting. The biggest part of the bill was $5,340 for almost 45 hours of time by a senior engineer.
Oh, and before you reach for the calculator, 5,340/45 = $118.67 per hour. And you thought $71 for making a car was a lot. This was 45 hours for an engineer to review files already prepared. Can you say "pay to play"?
All for a casino that this city hasn't got a Chinaman's Chance in hell of getting.
Note to Michelle: Money talks, bullshit walks. Give it up. Or we won't let you play Mayor anymore.http://nwi.com/articles/2008/12/13/news ... 063887.txt
