Need reliable and affordable snow removal service recommendations please!

I'd greatly appreciate any referrals for snow removal service for an 8 unit condo building in Old Irving Park please! I know its early, perhaps, but just found out our former vendor closed shop :( Thanks for your time!

Past by a few times this week and all dark. Hope it has not closed up already.

    Hasn't even opened yet. Opens today.

  • Mmmm, it was open for several weeks already, as many folks have posted and commented on the food. So was that a pre-grand opening sample?

3 gunshots heard near Irving and St Louis around 8pm last night

Did anyone else hear the 3 shots in this area? I ran out side to see if I could see anything but could not see anything out of the ordinary. I called the fuzz to report it.

  • Chris hey Andy, are you goofin' on Elvis?

    Brian, my wife thought she heard them, but off in the distance, at that time last night. But we are north and west of that area. I didn't hear them.

    There has been a flair up of SGD and FS taunting SCR's graffiti in that immediate area in the last week. Just over 3 years ago, SGD's shot and filled an SCR and wounded another. With FS involved in a shooting a few months later. I'm guessing the flair up in graffiti is marking that anniversary, which is now following by the gunshots.

2800 block of irving park

What's going on across from Burger King?

  • The Great 33rd Lifelong Northsider!

    I had been curious about that. I see a lot of riff raff there from time to time and was under the impression that is a hang out for older gang members.

    I ain't the one. I pay too much taxes to deal with riff raff.

Residents express concern about the impact of closing section of Waveland Avenue for the proposed project; alderman to form steering committee

http://nadignewspapers.com/2014/10/13/ald-arena-will-form-committee-to-address-concerns-about-closing-waveland-for-schurz-athletic-field/

  • Careyann Old Irving resident

    2 weeks post-meeting with Alderman Arena, has anything happened other than the monthly OIPA meeting back on Oct 13th? Has the steering committe been formed? Is there any neighborhood group that has been formed to specifically object to the proposed project?

Feral/Alley Cat Colony

Over the last few years our feral/alley cat population in the 3700 Block of Albany has gone sky high. It all started with a few houses that kept their non-spayed/neutered cats outside. I know of at least 20 cats that room the block.

The biggest issue is that they come into our yards and gardens and defecate everywhere and then we have to clean it up. I have an indoor cat, but outdoor cat feces can be harmful if touched....

Over the last few years our feral/alley cat population in the 3700 Block of Albany has gone sky high. It all started with a few houses that kept their non-spayed/neutered cats outside. I know of at least 20 cats that room the block.

The biggest issue is that they come into our yards and gardens and defecate everywhere and then we have to clean it up. I have an indoor cat, but outdoor cat feces can be harmful if touched.

And my neighbor can't get them out of his garage. He is now on his third momma kitty with a litter that has crawled through the side and camped out far under a utility bench. He feels bad of course and doesn't want to harm them so he just lives with is, but again cat poop everywhere.

It is hard to know if these are someone's pets or not. I heard that PAWS has a trap/spray and release program but what if these are really pets? I guess if they are and the owner let's them roam then it's fair game? I have noticed more alley cats on blocks on Troy and Whipple too. Anybody else having this issue?

  • Greg V. Cycling Dude

    Sorry, that should be LOTS of stray cats.

  • My street, the 3400 block of Keating, has no other feral cats wandering around. There used to be one or two, but I haven't seen them in ages. The rat population has exploded. I have been here 22 years, and back then I used to see 1 rat a year,...

    My street, the 3400 block of Keating, has no other feral cats wandering around. There used to be one or two, but I haven't seen them in ages. The rat population has exploded. I have been here 22 years, and back then I used to see 1 rat a year, if that. Lately, we had them running through our yard every day. I was afraid to work in my garden, and I was so afraid they would get in my house and garage. Ugh! I have had my 4 feral cats for only a few weeks, and I have not seen one rat in that time. It is like a miracle.
