Front Iron Fence

I recently moved in to this neighborhood... I want to put a fence in front of my home, but I noticed that no one has a fence. Is there some regulation? No fences are allowed?

  • Unless you have neighbors who dont teach their kids to respect others, I'm putting up all around the house. Just my second summer at the place; the front lawn had bold spots and depressions in the ground from kids playing soccer mostly in front of my house so I did...

    Unless you have neighbors who dont teach their kids to respect others, I'm putting up all around the house. Just my second summer at the place; the front lawn had bold spots and depressions in the ground from kids playing soccer mostly in front of my house so I did sod and leveled the ground andplanted nice shrubs and placed a couple of stakes and rope surrounding the perimeter; my neighbor (who has four kids) came up to me and said "the kids won't respect that rope, they are kids" and sure enough they're playing soccer again in my brand new grass! But now they also go in my backyard that had a 3-4 feet high chain link fence, I've even seen grownups do it (I have security cameras) so they leave me no choice but to fence my property, otherwise I wouldn't fence the front yard but I like the privacy of wood fences on the back yard.

  • My fence will be 5' high and with staggered spears and arched gate.

Fences

If a dog owner does not care to secure his or her dog within the limits of the property there is also a reason for concern. Are guarding our homes with dogs and fences? Betterto install a camera and then you will be able to tell who the culprits are. I am sure that the reason that you want a fence is not cosmetic.

Water Metersave Program

I had the new water meter installed in September of 2014. When my payment credit ran out (rather quickly), I got a pretty large bill. Our usage averages about 50 gallons a day. Our bill figures to 169 gallons a day. Found out the water dept. automated phone system has a different meter number than ours. Was wondering if anyone might know a shortcut to the maze I am about to enter in order to correct this and adjust 6 months of billing.
Thanks

  • me

    Dan, this is good to know since my credit also ran out rather quickly ...in only 2 billings! I'll have to check my meter numbers. Never thought of that. There are only 3 people in this house and 2 of those work all day so where is all the water being used? All I can suggest is to contact the media if you don't get very far in your efforts. Good luck to you and let us know how it turns out.

  • Kath Kath

    I know that when they came and installed ours they showed me how to read the meter. There is something on the meter that can tell you if water is running or not. If it shows water is running (which also means the meter is running) when there is nothing on in the house then there is a leak somewhere. You may want to look at your actual meter and see if it's running all the time for a leak somewhere. Otherwise they overcharged you.

  • I will say nothing more

  • Sorry I gotta say one more thing. I just met ABC_123 and believe me SHE is not Paulino

  • Ohh...I have something to say:

    Excerpt from Editorial in Chicago Tribune, 2/25/15, p.18

    "Many of the incumbents who benefitted from the mayoral-linked political action committee Chicago Forward were successful. The committee dumped last-minute money and resources into more than a dozen races, including that of Ald. Michael Zalewski...; Zalewski cruised to victory along with Emmanuel allies...".
