The Broadview Park District Board and Director thought that they were above the law. The Village ordinance calls for the contractor to pull a permit for any major work or construction performed in the Village of Broadview. While the contractor usually pulls the permit, it is ultimately the responsibility of the owner of said property to ensure this is done prior to any work starting. This was not the case as the Park District attempted to cheat the Village tax payers out of thousands of dollars by starting work at Schroeder park without a permit. The building Commissioner promptly shut the job down once it was discovered and no work has commenced to date.
What are your thoughts on this attempt to defraud the taxpayers of Broadview?
