State workers dumped road kill on private land

February 23, 2012 at 01:27 PM

The Associated Press

CHICAGO—Some state transportation workers are facing disciplinary action for dumping animal carcasses on private property in suburban Chicago.

Officials with the Illinois Department of Transportation tell the Chicago Sun-Times and the Better Government Association that the workers involved were responsible for clearing “road kill.” The officials say the workers left several dead deer and a dog in a brushy area behind a vacant building in Northfield.

IDOT crews have now properly disposed of the carcasses, which were dumped months ago.

Department spokesman Guy Tridgell says the agency was “sad and appalled” by the situation. He says an IDOT investigation determined that discipline is warranted.

Tridgell says IDOT crews typically bury dead animals on state property.

...and the guy that eventually ‘fessed-up to dumping these carcasses there, makes $70,000 per year.
We, the taxpayers, are routinely asked to make concessions in the services we recieve and to pay more taxes.
But the money we are already taxed pays an IDOT worker -not an administrator -$70,000 per year. Just what does an average administrator at IDOT pull down in a year?? $140,000??
And for what? To execute his duties so poorly that subordinates (making $70,000/yr) feel that they will not be held acountable for not doing THEIR job?
Politics. Disgusting.
