City of Chicago Water

Takes 3 months before I get the water department out here to look at a leak, 2 more before its fixed. 6 months an a mess is still out there.
I called the 2 city aldermen, 1 state representative, 311, forestry department came out an looked at it an I talked to him in front of the house an he said, " this needs to be redone, You need a bulldozer". Not only a bulldozer a "dumpster" also to put this dirt. The next door neighbors, there feed-up too.
