Taxpayers Lose on Public Minor League Baseball Stadium in Joliet

JackHammers are behind $195,000 in lease payments for 2009 and 2010, City Manager Tom Thanas told the Chicago Tribune.

Taxpayers are getting hammered by the deal owners of the Joliet Jackhammers cut with the rulers of Joliet.

The team owes vendors, too.

Cost of fixing bad stadium construction is the excuse.

Seven lawsuits have been filed against the team.  Key Outdoor  has been successful in getting paid $4,500 as a result of its court suit.

Sunday, the Chicago Tribune reported on the minor league baseball team’s problems.

Fortunately, no such articles have to be written about McHenry County College’s not getting paid what a contract says is due.
