Chicago 911 Official Resigns Over $2 Million Mistake.

Recommended Posts

Oh well. So What? Anyone can make a mistake. It's just the *Chicago way*. = "Jim Argiropoulos resigned as first deputy commissioner of Chicago's Office of Emergency Management and Communications (OEMC) to avoid being fired, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. In September, the inspector general's office recommended that he be fired for allegedly engineering a scheme that culminated in the falsification of documents to expedite the purchase of a new 911 dispatch console system from Motorola. The contract irregularities cost Chicago taxpayers $2.25 million, and so far no equipment has been delivered to the city.

The falsifications allegedly occurred in 2005, when Ron Huberman was executive director of the OEMC. Huberman is now accused of failing to properly supervise the contract. He is currently CEO of the Chicago Public Schools. Adrienne Hiegel, Huberman's top deputy at the OEMC at the time, was allegedly in on the scheme as well as Argiropoulos. She currently works for the Chicago Public Schools."

*The Chicago way = "The death of Chicago school board president Michael Scott. Scott was found with a gunshot wound to the head, according to the office. His body was found early this morning at the water's edge of the Chicago River behind the Chicago Apparel Center at 350 N. Orleans along the north branch of the river, police said." =
