Fox 32 "Flannery Fired Up" Discussion on Pension Issue

Alderman Christopher J. Clark, Mike Flannery and Laurence Msall discuss Harvey's pension and financial crisis and the importance of goverment transparency.




Public Safety enriches the quality of life of our community by providing a safe and secure environment based upon effective relationships and excellence in service.  It reduces overall costs for homeowner and vehicle insurance, city expenses and resources.  


    In addition to the quality of life, public safety is a major component of business sustainability and future economic development.  Improving public safety reduces costs and makes Harvey a more attractive destination.




As Mayor, I will aggressively address issues of public safety, ensuring that our residents and businesses can have a safe environment to call home.


     Here are a few of the public safety goals my administration will accomplish:


  • Restructure and reorganize the police department:

    • lobby federal, state and county for financial assistance with vehicles and equipment;

    • review policies to create better internal controls based on Department of Justice and Cook County Sheriff investigative findings;

    • develop relationships with other jurisdictions to provide better police support;

    • create police sub-stations; and

    • increase the actual amount of patrol officers.

  • Restructure and reorganize the fire department:

    • lobby federal, state and county for assistance with vehicles and equipment;

    • increase staffing; and

    • re-open all firehouses.

  • Provide adequate street lights to improve visibility:

    • conduct a lighting analysis to assess areas where lighting is most needed, developing the most needed areas first;

    • install more cost-efficient lighting throughout the city,  allowing the city to install more lights while keeping operational costs low.

  • Repair or replace defective city traffic lights.

  •  Create avenues to improve Harvey's public health:

    • create a Department of Public Health;

    • create a Medical District. 

  • Create and organize a plan for animal control:

    • provide for micro-chipping of domesticated animals (dogs, cats, etc.) ;

    • provide for spaying and neutering of domesticated animals (dogs, cats, etc.); and re-establish
    • citywide rodent and pest control. 

  • Develop and implement a plan to address abandoned homes:

    • work with South Suburban Land Bank and other agencies to inventory viable abandoned homes and put them on the market for sale;

    • work with Cook County and other agencies to board up abandoned homes.
