How long does it take to have a pot / sink hole repaired?

THREE MONTHS TO REPAIR A POT / SINK HOLE !! -- I've tried to have a pot hole repaired since I noticed it on August 3rd. I took pictures and submitted a ticket to 311. They cancelled the ticket without telling me why. I opened two more tickets, and then sent a message through the Mayor's website.

THREE MONTHS TO REPAIR A POT / SINK HOLE !! -- I've tried to have a pot hole repaired since I noticed it on August 3rd. I took pictures and submitted a ticket to 311. They cancelled the ticket without telling me why. I opened two more tickets, and then sent a message through the Mayor's website. All 3 tickets canceled, but at least Streets and Sanitation sent an email saying it was not their problem because it is a SINK hole and forwarded the issue to Department of Water....three weeks ago. The only action I have seen so far is a barricade placed over the sink hole. The Alderman's office has been of no assistance, and told me to go through Dept of Streets and Sanitation. If I can't use 311 who can I talk to? Do any of you know?

    Thanks DMD86 for your comment. All opinions are respected. But you also must respect my opinion. Did you know a new Hotel was built on 83rd and Vincennes and allegedly two black workers worked as Flaggers! This is an outrage!

    Thanks DMD86 for your comment. All opinions are respected. But you also must respect my opinion. Did you know a new Hotel was built on 83rd and Vincennes and allegedly two black workers worked as Flaggers! This is an outrage!

    The fact that our people have been lulled to sleep by the very politicians you seek to protect. Our people have not received their fair share. We face huge roadblocks at each attempt we make to get our fair share of construction, IT and State Jobs! Look at the IDOT scandal full of patronage and no blacks hired yet!!. You have no idea how many Snowbirds get jobs from our community. The State is in non compliance with black hiring!

    How much of that 2.9 Mil went to black contractors? Point me in the right direction of where these jobs went in our communities is that why we have 60% unemployment?

    How can we make it worse when we have good ole boy Mr.Quinn doing a great job of disenfranchisement of our people. He has the nerve to ask for our vote!. Its obscene. DMD86 the mistake is already made by our people trusting this guy to do right by us. IDOT is not the only agency that is in non compliance. Check the Annual Report for hiring AA's 2014 if you dare to check. Also notice there are no black men heading any agency.

    Mr. Quinn had 6 years to handle but only now since he is running for election wants to create a diversity task force to attract AA's --He's got to be kidding!!

    AA's voted for Jim Thompson, and Jim Edgar twice. Both Republican. AA's did better. Rauner has given dollars to Democrats in the past. That makes him able to walk across the aisle in Springfield where MADIGAN IS THE REAL GOVERNOR.
    Rauner taking no salary or pension will have much negotiating power. AA's are doing far worse under the Quinn Administration. Don't be fooled Our votes can demand
    better. Personally will vote my conscience and the best candidate for the job.
