Stop Signs Knocked Over

I witnessed two near accidents today at Moody & Berteau. Tried to call 311 and was told to call back due to a high call volume. Called 16th District and was told they would report it. The stop sign at Mobile and Berteau is also down. When does the City act? After an accident or when a child gets killed?

    Just feel better knowing who ever hits the sign does damage to the car. A few hundred dollars in repairs is a nice reminder of what not to do. Unless it was a junker and they just don't care. Then that's a shame.

  • There was a tree blocking. Stop sign by my house and everyone kept blowing through it. I sent alderman culvert in a Facebook message and 3 days layer the tree was trimmed. And he followed up to make sure it was done.

Central & Irving Park

This is an Alderman question.

After the fire I heard the building was being destroyed. Sure looks like that isn't happening. Is it going to be reopen?

    Alderman Tim, thanks for answering my question.

  • Black N White, in fairness though, that's purely anecdotal. Did they deliver? I want to say they did but can't recall. And they were more of a pick-up and go place versus dining in and standing at the counters. But they were still also fairly new. I really hope they do return.

Street Cleaning/ No Parking Signs

Anyone notice the No Parking signs for today (7/9) and yesterday (7/8) in the Montclare Neighborhood? Usually the signs are put up for street cleaning. I didn't see any streets get cleaned on either day. I called the alderman's office and they said they are no longer in charge of that. Now it's the Mayor's office. I wonder if this is a new way for the city to make money. Write tickets for No Parking but don't put out the resources.

  • So sad! The alderman should be able to verify if the signs were posted or not -- if not he should write you a letter so you could contest/fight the ticket!

  • Craig Born and raised in the city.

    I spoke with the Alderman's office and they said Rahm took that away from them. The Mayor's office doesn't even notify them if they post signs or not.

5 people were shot and a person stabbed during and after the parade. Even Chicago parades are violent.

World Cup!

Anyone know a good place to watch today's game around our area???

  • You can watch them in Spanish on free TV on channel 66.1. You don't need cable and you may even improve your Spanish.

  • Cherylann Neighborhood Watch

    Show me a bar in the neighborhood that doesn't have it! Most bars are opening early. Even last Sunday I went to Vaughan's on Northwest Highway for brunch, which normally opens at 10:00 (they just don't serve liquor until 11), only to find out they had been open since 8:00 am as there was a hurling game that started at 8:45. You can also view it on the internet, live streaming on all games.

Loose dog

I saw a very friendly loose dog running between major and parkside on berteau this morning at about 8:45.

  • You know, dog without a leash on the streets is a violation of our city ordinance, you CAN report it. If you can't make the owners responsible maybe the authorities will?

  • A&K

    Letting the dog wander is not safe. However, if the owners to lack care or concern lets consider the alternative. Locked inside? No fresh air? Maybe tied up in the back yard....it's not a pleasant thought but at least this way you can check the condition of the dog for any health concerns.
