I've been calling up 311 and not getting anywhere I have two dogs that my neighbor has out side all day and night especially in a scolding heat know one wants to do anything about it for me I asked her about Annimal Control they say they put it through I called her back up the next day and they said that they're backed up here short staff. the next step I called the police and asked them if they could help me and they said that they're going to send someone out this bin going on for a long time I've been calling up for two weeks and still the same thing I just want to know what's my options there in the wood kennel gate and who knows if they even got water and a lot of Hallowing from both dogs
This is not right Maybe I should call the media or Somthing .

  • Those poor animals. I would go directly to the neighbor and ask if it's ok to give water to her dogs. Thankfully they have a compassionate neighbor like you!

  • Take pictures and call the press.

Safety

We need stop signs on Grace and Oak Park Ave ASAP (Speeding vehicles)OMG!!

  • Yes, I am sure all the reckless drivers are speeding and running stop signs due to frustration caused by bicycle infrastructure. Makes sense.

    Warland, what i mean is that many many bike riders have a disregard for safety. You need to drive around lakeview, bucktown and east of there and the near north side. I do and I tell you it is the wild west there! I have seen more than 3 times...

    Warland, what i mean is that many many bike riders have a disregard for safety. You need to drive around lakeview, bucktown and east of there and the near north side. I do and I tell you it is the wild west there! I have seen more than 3 times bikes going thru a lite and the oncoming has a left turn arrow. the left turner stops and once one of the bikers almost ran into the car. I see on a daily basis bikes going thru red lites. Also take Clybourn from Division to North Ave and it has been narrowed to 1 lane. When someone is turning left everybody and I mean everybody behind has to wait. The bikers however have their own lane and sail thru!! They pay no stickers, plates or anything. Up here on the northwest side not a problem so much. Why have they narrowed Irving Park west of Oriole? I think to place an island at Pittsburgh or the next street. Makes no sense. I was coming home east on Irving and it was backed up form Cumberland to Oriole, I come this way often and never had this experience. Also they have gotten rid of almost all the crossing guards so they make these islands for the kids to cross at.

Cemetery

Construction in the old Oakpark cemetery 17,000 forgotten buddies will be removed starting tomorrow Monday .

  • Thanks for posting (the street is closed). But actually 17,000 will not be removed. They are re-routing Oak Park Avenue to go around most of the deceased. The article states that if they do happen to come in contact with remains, only those remains will be moved to the Dunning-Read Memorial Park.

  • creepy

  • Oak Park Av will be closed down to traffic between Forest Preserve Dr & Irving Park Rd. Traffic will be detoured to Harlem Av instead. Should be a traffic nightmare between Oak Park Av and Harlem Av along Irving Park Rd. Recommend Addison St for detour instead.

Chain link fencing

Need 62' of straight 4' high chain link fencing. Waited for True-Link to contact me/come out today for estimate....never heard from them. Can anyone recommend a reputable, honest fence installer.

    Rustic wood fence in Niles and I think they do chain too

  • I'm currently having a fence installed through Skyline Metal Fabrication. They're on Facebook. So far I'm very satisfied with the job.

Booms

Just in case you were not aware we are close to July 4th Independence Day. This means for the next few weeks you will be hearing booms at night. They are not gunshots they are fireworks. Many of our fellow citizens who choose to ignore the local prohibition of fireworks will be setting off their illegal fireworks. Many of them will have enough of them to continue to amuse themselves before and after the holiday.
