Budget cuts are slashing deeply at the McHenry County Jail, where now Block corrections officers (COs) will "assist" inmates in the daily cleaning procedure after meals.
The COs will be in charge of dispensing the Germisept and other cleaning solutions onto the tables and in the toilets and cell sinks for the inmates to clean. They will also be in charge of spraying the Kleen-and-Klear for the inmates to wash the windows.
I wish I could keep my old TV shows straight. Is this from Gilligan's Island?
Now an $75,000/year corrections officer is going to walk around with a spray bottle and spray cleaners on tables, toilets, sinks and windows? I've got some choice words for whoever came up with that brilliant idea.
Oh, one more... soap for the mop buckets for floor cleaning has been cut in half.
And how about the re-assignment of a senior lieutenant who is approaching retirement? She was transferred to day duty, although there was already an adequate number of lieutenants assigned to day duty. This was apparently some privilege being granted to her because of seniority and approaching retirement. Why not just leave her where she was for the last few months?
