City Wants $540 From Wicker Shop Owner For Illegal 'Sandwich Board' Sign

State records show the warehouse at 4115 W. Ogden Ave. is registered as the address for Rosen's Shuga Records corporation and not the Wicker Park storefront where the record shop has been located since winter of 2015.

This article has 2 other Chicago locations (Show)

Though the violation occurred on the sidewalk in front of Shuga Records, 1272 N. Milwaukee Ave., the ticket notifying Rosen was mailed to a warehouse that Rosen says he uses only for storage and does not visit often.

Rosen, who says he has a hearing this week at the city's Central Hearing Facility, 400 West Superior St., told DNAinfo he went Downtown last Thursday to try to get the ticket reduced from $540 to the initial $100, which he says he'd be more than happy to pay. But he was unsuccessful.

    City Wants $540 From Wicker Shop Owner For Illegal 'Sandwich Board' Sign
    WICKER PARK - In October, the owner of Shuga Records was slapped with a $100 ticket for putting a sandwich board sign on the sidewalk - a violation of a little known city ordinance. Even worse is that the Wicker Park record shop's owner Adam Rosen says he was not aware of the ticket until last week - and now the city says he owes $540.

  • Stupid ordinance - needs to be repealed.

  • I disagree. Sandwich boards are just an obstruction to foot traffic.

    That said, the city machine is being pretty pedantic in this case. Let him pay the 100 bucks and be done with it.
