Minutes With the Mayor: Flossmoor Edition

Flossmoor Mayor Paul Braun is onboard with our popular video Q&A segment, but first, we need your “Qs.”

For those of you still unfamiliar, several weeks ago, Patch asked readers for questions to present to Homewood Village President Richard Hofeld. After narrowing down the submissions by vote, we presented them to Hofeld and he answered in a video response. 

Well good news, . Mayor Paul Braun was kind enough to agree to respond to your questions, as well. For the rest of the week, we want to hear what questions you may have for the mayor. Submissions will be collected from Patch comments and the H-F Patch Facebook page, and then you'll vote to narrow them down. Once that’s done, we’ll take care of the rest!

So let’s hear it. What questions do you have for Flossmoor Mayor Paul Braun?

This may seem small in comparison to some of the other concerns people have, but can someone (hopefully the mayor) explain to me why our pet license are so expensive in Flossmoor? We are only allowed to have 3 pets, each would cost you $15 pet license... totaling $45/year for the pets. Homewood charges $10 for the first pet, and $5 for each one after that, and you're allowed 4 pets. You could license 4 pets in Homewood for less than it costs to register 2 in Flossmoor. Naperville is only $4 per pet. Perhaps if you charged a more reasonable rate more people would actually register their pets. I think it's insane there is such a difference between Flossmoor and Homewood on these issues.

Yes. The PJH parking lot re-do is part of a multi-year paving project for the District. Flossmoor Hills, Serena Hills, and Heather Hill have been completed. Western is finishing up this summer and PJH is next.

I will wait a while to pick this one up. There is a also miniature liquor bottle next to one of the small bushes. https://www.dropbox.com/s/4ttknebbvf2cy4u/IMG00218-20120801-1936.jpg

I have been thinking about this a lot, and it really aggravates me... because you are right, a tag from Flossmoor is not going to make a bit of difference in locating my dog. Any responsible owner already has a tag on their dog with their information, and has their pet microchipped. I volunteer at South Suburban Humane Society and it saddens me to see how many pets are dropped off/turned in for various reasons. If anyone would spend a day there they would realize the importance of Spay/Neuter their pets. What about making a reduced pet license fee for pets that are spayed/neutured? $15 for unfixed pets, and $4 or $5 for those that have been fixed. It might be a small incentive for some people to do the responsible thing and spay or neuter their pets.
