Praying for the end of Belleville Township’s immoral soul

Belleville Township finally died Monday night after a heroic effort to end the redundant government with no real function. One down, 6,962 layers of Illinois government to go. Belleville should minimize its impact and absorb its few duties with existing staff, not two new hires and not in rented space.

Belleville Township is my shepherd; I shall not bleat.

It maketh 45 people a month to depart with gift cards: it costeth me $18 a year in property taxes.

It restoreth its own undead soul: it leads me down the primrose path for its employees’ sake.

Yea, though Monday it walked through the valley of the shadow of death, it will fear no end: for thou art with Belleville; thy rent and thy staff continue costing me.

Thou survived years of attacks by thine enemies: thou appointest two new workers to handle two visitors a day; my ire runneth over.

Surely government illogic shall further thee all the days of my life: and I will dwell with the debt of the Township for ever.
