Neighbor parks business truck with business plates on our block

Neighbor parks his business truck plate truck on the block backing really close to the person behind him as to conceal the plate. He will do it to anyone of the neighbors. Butt usually his wifes car.
This also makes it difficult for neighbors to pull out when someone has parked behind them. What can we do to stop this?

  • I can attest to the earlier comment (PJ) about parking situation on Austin. We hear a flatbed tow truck park on most nights, especially in the summer when the windows are open -- the sound of the chains and the back up alarm sound exceptional at midnight. The newest overnight parking additions are ATT trucks. Iam also pretty certain that the drivers don't live in the area.

  • If they don't live in the area you think they are switching the vans for cars?

PPNA supports Central/Lawerence Starbucks?

We are wondering if the PPNA is supporting the Central/Lawerence Starbucks?

  • If Lawrence is the border, wouldn't that put the JP library in PP?

  • joanie 20+ year Resident of Jefferson Park

    Not just the Jefferson Park Library, but the Jefferson Park Congregational Church and the Jefferson Park Post Office too. I was always told that my residence was in Jefferson Park, not Portage Park. The City of Chicago came up with the community centers map that put the border at Lawrence.

BEWARE! Workers posing as Com Ed employees are making the rounds

Two young African American males rang my doorbell, and every other doorbell in my building this afternoon. They said they were from Commonwealth Edison and "wanted to talk" about my electricity delivery. I went to the common door, asked to see their ComEd identification. They said there were from an electricity supplier. I didn't let them in and neither should you.

  • 36 Ward. Door to Door sales as this are illegal. Call Police and tell them you are in the 36 Ward and get these people out of the Ward.

    FYI....they will tell you the are not selling just comparing savings with their suppliers vs com ed. They lock you into a price per kW that they say will save you money over the long run because everything goes up. They have a quota and make a certain amount per deal that is approved.
    Do not show them your bill to compare.
    Often the info is taken and you have no idea that you were signed up with another supplier.
    Years ago I did this for gas. We were lucky then the next years were cold and snowy..
    Unfortunately..it was a 5 year lock with penalty for early cancelation.
    Let CUB know they are misrepresenting themselves as Com Ed. Ask to see an ID that tells you exactly who the supplier is and report them.
    They are not doing you any favors!!

Developers in Portage Park/Dunning

I am interested in reaching out to a few developers in the area to see if any are interested in the purchase of my home. I am NOT in the market for a realtor as I already have one but would like to know before I sign a contract if there are developers out there who I could negotiate a deal with before i commit to the sales fees. Thanks in advance for any help.

  • Im a developer as well as agent and have clients that could be interested. For me - I don't work in Dunning or Portage Park for my investments but I have clients who could be interested. My question is simple - what is your lot size and what kind of house is it. Ranch, Bungalow. We are only interested in Tear Downs and 2nd Story additions potentials. Bigger the lot the better. And is it Portage or Dunning?

  • Mark 60634 Foundation crack repair pro

    I remember in 2011 I had good couple of days and listed 2 of my rehabbed properties for $1 each. Yes $1.
    Guess what happened?
    I sold them later for the amount of the market value. But sure there were some people who offered $2 for the property lol 😁.
    So people remember you can list let's say your 300k home for 500k or even for $1. It will sell for the amount people want to pay or what the appraisal is going to be. That's it. Simple.

Lost cat

Smallish brown and grey striped tabby. Female cat, name is Tessie. She has a collar but no tags. She is microchipped to a relatives address in Park Ridge and also anti cruelty. She's been with me for many years. Got away from pet sitter. Very friendly and probably scared as she is an indoor cat only. Around Berenice and Laverne. 773-407-2369

  • I'll keep an eye out. I hope you find her!

  • Post this on lost cats of IL. Put out her dirty litterbox and check with neighbors garages and bushes, decks. Put out flyers and also hand them out to neighbors.

  • Try shaking her dry cat food while calling her name.Connie Kay has all good ideas. Good luck and keep us posted.

    Rep. didn't list source of income because form was hard to understand
    A Democratic legislator from the Northwest Side was paid $170,000 for work as a consultant to fellow Democrats during two years when he failed to list that work as a source of income on his required state ethics filings, records examined by the Chicago Sun-Times show. State Rep.

    Thanks for this. What a weird thing...

    "The ethics forms ask legislators to “list the name and instrument of ownership in any entity doing business in the state of Illinois in which [their] ownership interest” is worth more than $5,000 or from which they made more than $1,200 during the past year."

    I can definitely see his confusion.

    I don't know if this is Trump weariness or not but I don't see fire here. Just messiness, like in all human lives.

    He doesn't owe money to anyone he just didn't disclose, what he earned from his political friends, properly. We all know his political connections. Didn't bother us when we voted for him. Why would this change it?

    Also the article is written in a language that alleges what it can't prove. They state he complained about lack of paycheck. But his business got paid $700K from other politicians since 2005. But he says he's earning less than 20% profit from it. So he was paid somewhere around $12K a year. And now the baloon has no air... Same information. Told 2 different ways. His other paycheck from the law-firm is something that could generate envy and anger that he complained about lack of paycheck from the state. This cannot.

    So sleaze alleged, nothing proved.

    But the question is: is someone going to challenge him for the seat next election? Is that why this article?
