City Hall Jokes

JUNE 9, 2015

Political irony. Dyster is spending $13,000,000 to bring ice to youth hockey with his ice pavilion renovation project, but never had to spend a dime to bring ice to 72nd and 77th streets in LaSalle.

Taxpayers are complaining about the mayor’s $5000 “test trenches” on 72nd Street. The residents should remember that in a city with a $50,000,000 courthouse and a $45,000,000 train station, $5000 for a hole in the ground sounds just about right.

Introducing the “critical thinking” corner: If a $32,000,000 courthouse ends up costing $50,000,000 where did the $18,000,000 go?

The initials are still the same. The city’s Community Development department is now being referred to as the Covert Department in light of the way its director, Seth Piccirillo, operates Isaiah 61 and manages his department finances.

Answer: Sherlock Holmes, Colombo and Mark Furman.
Question: Name three famous detectives that never had a crack at solving the Paul Dyster anonymous fund mystery.

Overheard on the third floor of city hall: “After reading Nick Melson’s tweets it looks like Dyster hired Bluto from Animal House to be his administrative assistant.

For those who think Dyster is paying too much for the holes on 72nd Street they should remember he’s paying about $100,000 for every hole running a city department.

How deep are those “test trenches” in LaSalle? Deep enough to hide some city hall dirty laundry.

Question: How do you make $18,000,000 disappear?
Answer: Build a courthouse in Niagara Falls.

“Some people read the offensive and bigoted remarks made by my administrative assistant and think, ‘that’s outrageous!’ I read those same offensive and bigoted remarks and think, ‘I need this joker to get reelected!’” Paul Dyster in a rare moment of candor.

The sneaky folks at city hall have slowly moved the Internet release of the council agenda from the Wednesday before the meeting to the Friday before the meeting, and moved the release of the council meeting support material from the Thursday before the meeting to the Friday before the meeting. At this rate the agenda and support material will eventually be posted on the Internet after the meetings.
