Late Thursday, Dixmoor Village President Fitzgerald Roberts defended what he has done to fix the tap.
“What me and the board of trustees have done during this crisis, I don’t think no one else would have moved as quick as we have,” Roberts said. “This issue was not brought to the previous administration, because this is an issue from someone turning the valve. I’ll stand on that.”READ MORE: Jussie Smollett Trial: Abel Osundairo, One Of Two Brothers Who Said He Was Paid To Help Stage Attack, Says Smollett 'Wanted Me To Fake Beat Him Up'
In other words, Roberts still blames the City of Harvey, which controls the water supply.
Dixmoor residents late Thursday were still relying upon trucked-in bottled water.
Harvey Mayor Christopher Clark said the pipe problems were brought to Dixmoor village leaders years ago and nothing was done about it. As quoted above, Roberts denies that claim.MORE NEWS: Chicago Weather: Partly Cloudy And Breezy Overnight
