Mulroe, O’Conner applaud Taft High School construction

mulroe-tafthsCHICAGO – Construction was scheduled to begin  this month on long overdue repairs and renovations to William Howard Taft High School on the City’s northwest side.

The $17 million construction project will address some of the school's most seriously needed repairs. Clouded windows will be replaced, all nine science labs will be updated and renovated, the exterior crumbling brick will be patched and repaired, multiple areas of water damage will be fixed and the school's lockers will all be replaced.

“I welcome the opportunity to partner with the City to address the severity of the deterioration at Taft and for providing a remedy to the problem,” said Senator Mulroe, who was instrumental in working with city and officials in getting the construction project included in the City’s budget plan. “Our kids deserve a safe building and functional resources so that they can focus their attention on their studies.”

Taft's utilization rate is 146 percent, with 3,195 students attending class in a building with an ideal capacity of 2,184 students, making it one of the most crowded Chicago Public Schools high schools, according to data released by the district.

“Taft has been forgotten about and that neglect shows,” Alderman Mary O’Conner said, “These investments will help ensure that many more generations of students will have the resources they need to earn a world class education at one Chicago’s finest neighborhood schools.”

Construction is expected to last through the remainder of the school year and into the summer.

Senator Mulroe to hold Satellite Office hours in Park Ridge

Mulroe-Satellite-Hours-2014PARK RIDGE– Senator John G. Mulroe (D-10) will be holding satellite office hours throughout the district over the course of the next few months. His first stop for the year will be in Park Ridge next week.

The Park Ridge satellite office event will be held Monday, March 31 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Park Ridge Public Library (20 S. Prospect Ave. 1st floor, Park Ridge, IL).

“The 10th District has changed dramatically in the last year. Many times the district office is too far or hours are too inconvenient for area residents,” Sen. Mulroe said. “I am interested in taking this opportunity to introduce myself to residents and discuss state or local concerns at a location that is convenient for people in the Northwest suburbs.”

Area residents are welcome to attend the satellite office hours to discuss state government or community issues. Many other services are also provided. Residents can receive assistance with FOID card applications, food stamp issuance, healthcare, veteran or disability issues, Medicare paperwork, foreclosure prevention assistance and much more.
