So I just noticed today at Western and Jackson, and the few blocks surrounding, the city put in paving stones for the crosswalks.
That's in addition to the medians on western that they are building in that area.
Does this anger anyone other than me? Seriously the city is cash strapped for money, they are raising fees on everything they can. And then they put in paving stones for crosswalks?
That, and the medians. What a waste of money. Completely unnecessary. It really angers me that our tax dollars are being spent that way when the city is in such financial trouble.

Came home last night around 930/10 and there was some major work being done on Erie, east of leavitt. After getting home all my faucets, toilet and dishwasher included gurgled like crazy and the water was initially brown.
Anyone else have this happen? It could be the vent but thought it was all too coincidental with what I think is ground drilling.
Does anyone also know what they're doing? There was house construction happening further east on the same block but not sure if this is related.
Just saw about 7 police cars parked with lights on near the bank (12:18 am). Could not tell what was going on. Anyone know?

So glad you're back, EveryBlock! Has anyone noticed the intersection of Ashland and Augusta? As one light turns red the opposite is simultaneously turning green. I've witnessed a few fender benders recently! I've notified the alderman with no resolution. Be careful my fellow EveryBlockers! 🚙🚕🚗
