Mirage Editorial: "The Public Gets Burned" - Chicago Sun-Times

"Fire protection isn't cheap here. The Fire Department budget - more than $106 million - is the city's fourth largest. But the public isn't getting its money's worth. Mayor Bilandic says he is 'looking into' Fire Comr. Robert J. Quinn's management of the department. Only a thorough investigation and a full report to taxpayers will do. . ."

Description:Editorial urges the Mayor to investigate the management of the fire department.
