Web forum participation is dynamic. The most important participants are those who START topics that interest them or post information about upcoming meetings/events/. Providing summaries, highlights and action items that impact residents.

Chatter ebbs and flows depending on the times. At the same time, there are people who prefer there not be an unofficial water cooler for people to exchange ideas or opinions on how things are done.  Much of the perceived battling is actually deliberately trying to downgrade discussions. Then they point and say how terrible the place is and how bad anyone who participates is.

It's sad really.

It could be a good board with useful information for current Berwyn residents, those looking to move there or the recent arrivals.  But there seems to be some people who like to attack so that puts a damper on people wanting to post. Is there a moderator for BTF?

If you go to city hall they will print out a copy of all the registered and bonded contractors in Berwyn.

FWIW, in the day when I was a kid, the bill was administered twice yearly. Seem to recall numbers like around $30, 3 member family. At the same time, my Grandma's house, 3020 S. Central Park Ave., HAD NO WATER METER! She left the hose running outdoors constantly. (pissed my Dad off!).     berwynson

Maybe there is an old bill from the previous owner??  Or, a slow leak somewhere?

Don't water/trash pick up bills from previous owner have to be paid up before closing on a sold property?
  Yes.

Oh he'll balance it by slashing education.... again.... just wait

 I thought one of the biggest falsehoods in the campaign was the Quinn commercial saying he did not cut education funding.  That was an out-and-out lie.

 I understand that cuts were needed everywhere in the budget, but school districts took a hard hit around 3 to 4 years ago when state funding for education was cut back.
