Dead Dog on Central, about 50' north of 55th Street

There is a white cream color dog, curly hair next to the sidewalk. I have no idea what to do other than report it to 311. If anybody is missing a dog with that description, please check, that way at least you have some closure and know what happened to your loved one. Somebody placed a towel red towel over her. I don't know if the two girls were the owners or just concerned, they were picked up in a pickup before I had the chance to ask them.

Lawn fine

I live with my friend and her elderly father. He just received a fine for the backyard not being mowed. They told him he has 24 hours or he would receive. The fine is $1000 he said. He is 65 years old so Im not sure how that is going to happen. She works and Im here to help both of them, making sure he doesnt fall or try to burn the house down by trying to cook (he has immaculate degeneration).

  • Pat

    My dad is 97 years old. My sister and i are in our late fifties and manage to do his home and lawn care. We do not live near his home. I also work. Sounds like there are 2 able-bodied people who can cut the back lawn instead of complaining about fines.

  • Is this the place on Lorel? If so, I reported it. Before doing so, I knocked on the door to offer to cut if for free because I realize that some people have issues.

    What's the point to your post? Are we supposed to be outraged that the city is enforcing health issues? If I see a property that has weeds/grass/tree weeds over 10" tall on average, per city regulations, I will report it. These properties are inviting to rodents and insects, including mosquitoes and ticks.

    Cut the grass/weeds, including around the garages. Ignore it and risk the city placing a lien against the property if the fine is not paid. If you want to start a charity page to raise funds to pay a contractor to mow the lawn, I would gladly donate. The city has a snow removal program to help seniors and/or disabled and lack financial resources or people to help them. Perhaps one is needed to help with mowing lawns.

    Homeless group close to suit over bike path plan in Uptown
    The more than three dozen people who live in tents under the Lake Shore Drive bridges at Wilson and Lawrence avenues know better than anyone that the structures need repair. Concrete from the Depression-era bridges is crumbling onto the sidewalks and streets below, posing a deadly hazard to tent-dwellers, as well as motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians.
