Naperville Park District – “Feedback” from Commissioners –

Naperville, IL. (ECWd) –

Wow, this valuable feedback is simply amazing!

…amazing that the Naperville Park District is trying to pass this off as “valuable feedback” from its Commissioners that receive perks, discounts, and freebees in violation of the law – or in other words…feedback from its Commissioners that receive compensation for being elected as a Commissioner – for had they not have been elected, they would receive none of the perks, discounts, and freebees. Previous articles on the Naperville Park District are here and here.

It will soon become clear to you that the “feedback” excuse is a sham and these perks and discounts to the present and former commissioners and their families need to be abolished immediately. It violates the law.

Let’s look at some of the “feedback” from Commissioners that was “valuable in improving the experiences provided by the Park District“:

– My beach [discounted] pass didn’t work – I need to upgrade it so I can bring friends…

– “Ray” wouldn’t even give me the member rate at the Sportsman’s Club…

–  I didn’t expect free ammo, but I did expect a reduced rate on ammo…

–  I would like 4 complimentary tickets for the Saturday night Aladdin Jr. show…

– I will take 2 complimentary tickets for the 12:00 PM performance on Saturday…

That’s it, other than a lengthy discussion on the Community Garden Plots where the majority of the discussion was not with Commissioners.

The only comment from a Commissioner that I would consider “feedback” was a perceived safety hazard on a practice soccer field.

To be fair, this comment was also supplied in the FOIA response: -“Attached are copies of records from Commissioners and their families that provide feedback on Naperville Park District programs.  Feedback from Commissioners and their families was also delivered orally at Board meetings and in conversations with Staff.”
