backyard cleanup needed - will pay!

The snow has melted (for now) revealing that our backyard is a mess! 2 decent sized dogs + a couple months of neglect = an abundance of dog poo.

Looking for someone to clean it up initially with potential for weekly/bi-weekly cleanup moving forward. Clean-up schedule is flexible. Rates negotiable. Located near Kimball & Irving.

Will reach out to a professional service provider (any referrals???) but thought this might be a perfect job for a local teen/entrepreneur. Any interest? PM me or comment below. Thank you!

  • Loulu Me

    So does anybody still need this service?

  • AmandaB homeowner, animal lover & real estate agent!

    sent you a PM Loulu. email me at mandi.bell@hotmail.com if you did not receive it.

Parking Ticket for "Expired Plates or Temporary Registration"

I got a orange ticket today for not having my renewal sticker on my car. However, I never got a renewal notice. When I went onto the website to see how to remedy this, it says:

The Registration ID and PIN are located on the Renewal Notice you received either in the mail or by email. If you do not have a renewal notice, please call the Public Inquiry Division at 800-252-8980 to obtain your Registration ID and PIN.

What do I do? Obviously I'm going to call the Public Inquiry Division but should I pay this ticket even though I never received a renewal notice?

  • Ok, so someone who constantly has a beef. Should call this service "everybeef" based on that :)

    i got caught on this one - twice, almost. the hearing officer said the city had advertised no more reminders to people who had 1-year stickers. he implied that 2-year sticker holders would get reminders, which did not make sense at all.

    but i figured, why argue with him.

    but i figured, why argue with him.

    i talked him into waiving the fine on the second ticket, paid my $200 fine on the first, and learned to pay attention to the CLEARLY VISIBLE expiration date. duh.

    btw, apparently the wind and rain had blown the 2nd ticket off my car, so i never saw it and didn't know about it until the warning letters started arriving.

    now - a word to the wise ... the IL Secretary of State is no longer mailing out renewal notices on license plates (although you can sign up online for e-notices). since we can't read the little sticker dates from inside the car, make a point of checking them or sign up

  • Lived on North ave. and Mobile for 11 years, Galewood area. One shooting this close to me in that time, due to a shady Character my desperate management company allowed to run a tattoo parlor in the commercial space. Been hear 2 yrs. And more than I care to count. Yes. The notorious Austin hood was near by, but on the opposite side of the street was Oak Park for a mile....limited crime on my block and I suspect it was due to that. They wouldn't tolerate the mess!

  • Murphy Elementary School reviewed by a parent

    This school is absolutely top notch. The community is indeed a caring one and it reflects on the children who attend. The principal is warm, friendly, and attentive to everyone (she even knows all of the students names!) I wish all cps schools could follow Murphy 's example.

Direct energy?

I just had two guys come to my door wearing Direct Energy shirts and ID badges. they said they needed to come to check to see if I have upgraded my gas and electric. I asked them if they could come back later and the one kid said I'm a manager I have other houses to see. Then I said that no one had contacted me to say that they were going to come to my house. They didnt have an answer. They just said that they needed to see my bills and my meter. i told them to leave and locked the door. Anyone else see these guys? Legit?

  • They were in Hyde Park yesterday running this racket

Crime scene on California, south of Irving Park this morning

There were several squad cars, and the stretch of California in front of DePaul College Prep was entirely taped off for hours this morning. Anybody have any info on this?

  • yeah it was the ER doctors at the hospital that caused all of this confusion. The police were correct from the beginning.

  • This is creepy. I didn't hear anything and am very close by. Hard to believe I would not hear gunshots. How could the ER doctors be confused about gunshots to the head?

    I am not blaming Deb for anything, really. The way she framed things on FB really left the impression that these two boys were not shot. I was just pointing out that they were, in fact, shot (interestingly, just like the police initially said). I get that the police didn't find any evidence of a shooting at the crash (which I presume to mean bullet casings). However, I doubt they were shot very far from where the crash happened. I just don't see the driver being able to drive a great distance with a bullet in his head. So, the bottom line is the neighborhood has had yet another shooting with two dead.

  • Yeah sometimes it is better to just post the link to the news articles. I agree about that. The 1733 Caps meeting is on Feb 10th and this will be a topic I'm sure.

Anybody need some mirrored closet doors

I have a pair of mirrored sliding closet doors that need a new home. They are 49w x 78h ". I had them on a closet that was 80" wide. Frame is wood in a medium tone. They're in great condition but I had to remove them because I redid my closet. They are free. All you have to do is carry them out. I can't figure out how to add a picture to this post. If your interested email me and I think I can add a picture to that.

Discarding Furniture

Does anyone know of the best way to get rid of old furniture (not worth donating)? I'm moving & need to get rid of an old large couch & mattress/box spring. Thanks!

  • Or a random metal salvage guy will take it for the springs inside.

  • Ashley* Irving Park Resident

    Just curb it. Garbage pick up took my old couch and sofa (although I live in an apartment), you can call a landlord to be sure. I called mine and they said just to put it by the cans by the street.

Free Tile

I am setting random pieces of left over ceramic and travertine tile in the alley behind 3707 N Monticello, free to anyone who wants it. There is enough of one style for a half wall and floor in a small powder room. The rent is just a few extra peces which might work for a craft project.

    Those could have been donated to the Habitat for Humanity Restore, or the Rebuilding Exchange. Or, you could post on www.freecycle.org

    I had some free tile I listed on craigslist and they were picked up quickly. If no one picks them up in the alley you can try that also.
