Abandoned car~maybe???

There's a BMW parked in front of a building in Keeler, 4221 I believe, it's been there for 2 weeks with a temporary plate in the back and none in the front. Wonder if it's abandoned.

I pass it every day on my walk. It hasn't moved.

I called 311 but they rarely help. Any thoughts? Anyone else notice it?

Around 7 am this morning I found a dog at Byron and Keeler. It looks like it has been hit by a car and has a badly injured leg. Trying to find its owners. Been to the police and fire stations, posted flyers and posted on Lost Dogs Illinois. Anyone recognize this guy? Male, medium sized mixed breed. Mostly black. Appears to be mature. http://www.helpinglostpets.com/petdetail/?id=1210729

  • Botkin Kinch: the knife-blade

    I too was surprised at how small the interiors are. But they are clean and new and unoffensive, so I think prices settling in around the mid- to high-400s is probably about right. The area is great and up and coming. Access to many different forms of transit makes this a perfect spot for commuters. We'll see how it goes, but as someone who lives in the area, this has been a welcome project.

Lost Chihuahua found on Belle Plaine and Keystone

My husband found a female Chihuahua yesterday near the intersection of Belle Plaine and Keystone around 2pm. She is extremely friendly and allowed herself to be carried. She had no tags and after taking her to the vet, discovered she has no chip either. She is safe. If you have any info regarding this lost dog or if you are her owner, please contact Vlad at 773-931-2803

  • Jen Baron JBaron

    Good to hear! I hope you politely advised them to collar and chip the baby incase she gets lost again ;)

  • Thank you so much for helping this little creature. Many, many blessings!

Rats/Overgrown yard

Hey neighbors! We are dealing with a major rat problem around Keeler and Berteau, We had the city out, and they baited our area. They told us that the rats were coming from a house a few doors down. The back yard is waist high with plants and the front is about the same. Not looking to make enemies or go after anyone, but the rats are just hanging around in broad daylight, they're huge and they're all over this property. We spoke to a professional who is coming out in in the next month but would love tips, especially on how to deal with a problem house. Thanks! Also, anyway to figure out who our block captain is?

    The question you ask about "Block Captain"... there might or might not be a precinct captain living nearby. This is a political job and that person can advocate for you at the alderman's office. Or you could just walk in to the alderman's office yourself. To find if you have a precinct captain, ask at the alderman's office, but technically that's a political question that should be asked/answered in the alderman's political office, not in the city tax funded administrative office. All a bit touchy. In general, there are far fewer precinct captains than there used to be and most aldermanic staff are therefore more open to hearing directly from the citizens. (I've never heard of the term Block Captain used in a Chicago context.)
