Company trucks kn residential streets ?

How do we feel about compay pick ups parking on residential streets and alleys? And 3 additional personal cars? All one owner.

    Hi Cierra. Commercial vehicles are not permitted overnight parking on the residential streets. Please call 311 each time it happens so they can send a officer out to give it a ticket. I feel your pain. We had a group for a long time that parked 9 construction trucks on our block with fake temp tags. As far as the personal cars, there is nothing you can do about that. The only exception for the pickup truck would be is if the owner obtained a special use permit to park on the residential street meaning the truck is not for business use. http://www.cityofchicago.org/city/en/depts/fin/supp_info/revenue/parking_your_commercialtruckinchicago.html

    That I doubt.

  • Has that house become institutional living of some sort?

HEY THERE, NEIGHBOR.

I am a documentary filmmaker who lives at Francisco & Montrose. I wanted to share with you the project that I have been working on for the past 6 years. It is a universal tale of struggle, redemption and hope set in Bosnia Herzegovina.

AMONG WOLVES focuses on a motorcycle club led by a tough but charismatic leader. When he was 20 he commanded 250 troops in the successful defense of his town. Now in his 40s Lija is the leader of a very unique motorcycle club. The Wolves are not like the lawless bike clubs that are all too common in Europe. Instead they focus on humanitarian acts for their town and country. This includes protecting and tending to one of Europe’s only herds of wild horses.

We are in the final stages of editing and hope to submit it to festivals for a fall premiere!

We’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign to get us over our final financial hurdle. We need all the help we can get, if you can find it in your hearts to back a struggling independent filmmaker in your neighborhood. And helping spread the word is as important as your generosity.

Let me know what you think, and any advice you might have

Thanks!

A/C Duct Work

Anyone out there know how much it would cost to change a little ductwork around? For some reason, our front room has no A/C ducts, yet our kitchen area and back room have two each. As a result, the front half of our house is sweltering and the back half is freezing. There is a huge closet separating these rooms and is where the duct work is housed, so it would entail creating a vent into the front room through the closet, and rerouting one of the ducts from the kitchen. Any recommendations ?

  • It varies based on whats needed and what access they have. It won't be less than several hundred bucks, thats for sure

  • Rami Jaber with Flotech (although he does small jobs independently) is great at doing that- I've seen quite a bit of his commercial and residential work as he was my main hvac guy for recommendations. Maybe try giving him a call for an estimate- 847-338-8450.

ComEd Smart Meter Installations

As many of you might have noticed, ComEd has been busy upgrading the traditional analog meters to smart meters. These GE i-210+c meters have the ability for the homeowner to obtain realtime usage data directly from their meter to a display inside the home. This can help you better visualize your usage however when I contacted ComEd regarding connecting a device to my new meter, they stated that it will take 6-8 weeks before the new smart meter is integrated into their network. Keep this in mind if you plan on purchasing a smart meter data collector or usage display.

Police escort two private coach buses.

At approx 5:30pm today two State police motorcycles and one unmarked cop car were trying to push two coach buses along the traffic jammed Westbound Irving Park road near Independence Park. It seemed rather unusual and I'm curious to know if anyone knows who that was to get such preferential treatment?
