new pipes cost money

Proviso Herald (Cathryn Gran):
Bellwood officials are working with the Hillside/Berkeley Water Commission to ensure a water main replacement program runs smoothly and with as little inconvenience as possible to Bellwood residents....

The project consists of installing 16-inch water mains to replace the old 12-inch ones that connect the pumping station with the villages of Hillside and Berkeley, said commission attorney Dean Krone. The larger mains are necessary to provide a higher volume of water to serve increasing demands.

I wonder if Anthony Bruno helped put this deal together behind the scenes.

Christopher B. Burke Engineering is heavily involved in this project, so I did a search of campaign contributions by the company at the Illinois State Board of Elections.

The company has made 911 contributions totaling $697,611.41.

And that doesn't count when it gives $10,000 here and there to politicians pet causes. Forest Park Mayor Anthony Calderone got at least $10,000 from the company for some committee (party) that he was throwing.
