Alderman O'Connor

Let's not let this discussion turn into a debate about comparing our 41st Ward alderman to her predecessor. That's not what this is about, and he's history anyway. What this is about is the lackluster, unresponsive, "in over her head" performance of our current alderman and why she needs to be replaced by someone who is responsible to the residents of the 41st ward and not beholden to
the puppet master in City Hall.

  • I meant to say former CPD and now (not, not) CFD.

    I'm a neighbor of Joe Lomanto. He is extremely intelligent and
    passionate about this neighborhood and best of all he's honest.
    He will have my vote.

The decline of Edison/Norwood Park

My Neighbor went into the 41st Ward office last week to complain about the excessive airplane noise in the 41st ward. Mr. Hernandez the alderman's secretary basically told him to get lost ( in a nice way ). Now after 40 years in the neighborhood he and his wife are moving. With the new run way going in service next year and the noise getting worse, Are property values about to take a big hit? Even if you don't mind...

My Neighbor went into the 41st Ward office last week to complain about the excessive airplane noise in the 41st ward. Mr. Hernandez the alderman's secretary basically told him to get lost ( in a nice way ). Now after 40 years in the neighborhood he and his wife are moving. With the new run way going in service next year and the noise getting worse, Are property values about to take a big hit? Even if you don't mind the noise a perspective buyer might feel different. The neighborhood is made up of City workers, that have no choice but to live here. What happens when good people like my neighbor start leaving ?
Starting to see a lot of moving vans and for sale signs in Park ridge. Is this the start of the decline of Edison / Norwood Park ?

    This thread should stop..start a new one. A lot of posts to scroll through that don't add a lot of value. Probably like mine.

Wine and Dinner Service for a Group of 10

Wife entertaining coworkers in a few weeks. Any recommendations north of Irving and West of 94 in regards to a wine bar style restaurant? 10-12 people expected and not too loud as to allow for conversation?

  • BoilerGuy1 Boiler Guy and Neighborhood FF

    Yeah... just seeing if our first thoughts were good since we usually go for dinner for 2 and not a large group. Thanks!

Mail delivery issues

Is anyone having issues with their mail delivery? I am getting pieces of other peoples mail delivered along with mine, and now I know that my mail is not being delivered properly as I received a past due notice from ComEd for a bill I never received. I always take the wrongly delivered mail to the correct house if close by, or to the mailbox for proper delivery. I have complained to the post office and would encourage others to do the same if they are having issues as their errors are going to cost the community in late fees and declining credit scores.

    Mail delivery by me has been great. Olympia Park area.

  • Over the past 2 years mail delivery has been VERY spotty, mostly when there are fill-ins. It is always worse over the summer! Some of the USPS postal workers that deliver the mail do not even come in proper uniform. I have called the main USPS number regarding no mail...

    Over the past 2 years mail delivery has been VERY spotty, mostly when there are fill-ins. It is always worse over the summer! Some of the USPS postal workers that deliver the mail do not even come in proper uniform. I have called the main USPS number regarding no mail delivery or other peoples mail being delivered to my address and they document the complaint and are quite helpful.
    However, if I call the local post office (for me is 6300 N Northwest Hwy.), the man I spoke with numerous times claims the mail is never delivered past 6pm because all of his employees are checked in by then. I know for a fact that is not true since I don't have mail by 6pm, but it magically shows up by 8pm. Very frustrating!!

How to file a complaint about mail delivery.

Hi, I have posted in the past on Everyblock my issues with mail delivery, and others have voiced issues as well. Once again mail was not delivered this past Saturday (October 11) to my house or the neighbors. If you are having issues with no delivery, missing bills, friends getting their mail destined to you as undeliverable please take a few minutes to make an official complaint with the U.S. Postal Service.

Hi, I have posted in the past on Everyblock my issues with mail delivery, and others have voiced issues as well. Once again mail was not delivered this past Saturday (October 11) to my house or the neighbors. If you are having issues with no delivery, missing bills, friends getting their mail destined to you as undeliverable please take a few minutes to make an official complaint with the U.S. Postal Service.

I know that many people have posted that the Norwood Park post office is not the best when it comes to resolution of issues and customer service, and I agree that their attitude is not the best. I have been successful in submitting complaints direct to the U.S. Postal service via their 800 number and their website and have received calls back and feel this is a better way of airing issues as they are documented and the carrier even stopped by to personally talk about the issues I reported to the postal service.

To issue a complaint (for any valid reason you have), you can call them at 1-800-275-8777 (Monday - Friday 8 AM - 8:30 PM ET, Saturday 8 AM - 6 PM ET).
You can also submit your complaint by clicking ‘e-mail us’ on the website

https://www.usps.com/customer-service/customer-service.htm

I have not had luck filling out all the fields on the website with iphone or ipad and suggest you use a desktop if submitting an issue via the website.

I have nothing against the postal service or my carrier, I just want my mail properly delivered and not have to worry about not receiving mail. I hope that others will take the time to document any issues they have with the Postal Service so our local delivery can be up to the standards that we expect from the U.S. Postal service. Please also inform any neighbors that are not on Everyblock and may be having issues.

Thanks
