When the DeWitte comes down!

When the DeWitte comes down!

In today’s Courier-News column we discuss the very antithesis of the Municipal Mindset.
Now, I ain’t saying Mayor Don DeWitte is perfect, but when he got those overserving St. Charles bars to start behaving without so much as spending a dime of taxpayer cash, that’s about as close as it comes.
So far, it’s been a thing of beauty.
There weren’t any unnecessary and toothless task forces, the St. Charles police didn’t have to waste time ferreting out the worst offenders, and there was no empty and endless city/bar owner dialog. They were told to fix the problem or they’d be closing an hour earlier.
And with their bottom line on the line, it would seem like they’re actually making an effort.
Enjoy the column!
