Ald. Nicholas Sposato's Service Office From the 38th Ward to your kitchen table

What's wrong with the above account which commented twice today in a Portage Park thread. The above account was open in 2012 and up to May 2014 events held in Ald. Sposato's 36th Ward were occasionally posted. When did Ald Sposato take over the 38th Ward? Guess Sposato doesn't need to earn the support of the 38th Ward voters he just moves in. Hay Nick how bout showing 38th Ward voters and 38th Ald Cullerton a little respect?

  • Paula, Belmont Terrace 9-year resident

    Ald. Sposato has sponsored lots of useful events for residents of the ward, including the flood meeting that was mentioned above and property tax appeal events, both of which our family has taken advantage of and appreciated.

    Ald. Sposato has sponsored lots of useful events for residents of the ward, including the flood meeting that was mentioned above and property tax appeal events, both of which our family has taken advantage of and appreciated.

    I have to say that the large volume of posts about Ald. Sposato by one particular individual, across various EB threads, is bewildering. There have been several requests for her to take a more constructive approach, but she ignores these and the character assassination continues while she hides behind anonymity. I hope the poster is being paid by the opposition! If not, I'm afraid the non-stop slander rant is beginning to make her seem unbalanced.

    Finally, at least ten different negative comments about the toilet paper drive were made by this person in the past week alone, across different EB threads. Repetitive, yes, and I'm not convinced that the poster understands the larger strategy behind a public drive for the most basic necessities in our schools.

    Land of the Free, thanks for the good laugh!

    First of all, you do not have an alderman you did not elect you are still represented by the alderman you elected until May . Second , you unfortunately do not have a say in the redistricting of ward boundaries. It is done behind closed doors supposedly according to the census . Third, this was done almost immediately after the last aldermanic election so.....way to stay informed and in touch. And finally, Alonso is NOT Alderman Sposato's guy at all. For the record you can NOT go to any alderman office and ask any questions about elections or candidates or anything of that nature. It is illegal for them to answer. And it will do you no good to go to the 36th ward office as it stands now because (a. It will not be the office or the alderman when the new boundaries take effect and (b. That alderman represents another ward that you do not live in.

They have threatened me and my dog while walking where I even wet my pants. I have called the police and waited 4 hrs. on the nite of the incident of threat with no response. They want me to move since I am the first neighbor speaking out for the rest who are sooo tired of all their drama in sooo many years. The police know them very well since they have been there on many, many occasions but not with me. I heard that making a complaint with Arena won't get me anywhere from previous complaints people made on different incidents. Will going to the Caps meetings help me? I will not move since I love my apt. and the area and all the neighbors except for them. I will not bow down to them.

The 2014 file is called 2014 Program, found close to the tab's bottom on the left side.

My past links referred to a pdf file instead of the Capital Improvement Program tab, which became obsolete with any subsequent same-year data update.

Once the chosen year file is open, hold CTL key as you press F key. Then enter Ward: 36 to get to the first line of the ward detail. You will find that all 2014 Ward 36 dollars were spent on infrastructure, mostly street resurfacing. No park district expenses.

To find Ward 36th's park spending, you have to go to 2013 and 2012 Menu Report. In 2013, both Shabonna and Hiawattha playlots got $310,277 in total. In 2012, Shabonna got $85,301. These park playlots got multiple sources of funding, grants and ward matching.

    Thank you for posting this "Minerva". Copies of yearly menu expenditures are always available through the city or our office.

    After last years severe winter the streets were in very bad shape so after speaking with members of the community we decided to use the bulk of the 2014 menu funds on street resurfacing. In 2012 and 2013 I allocated funds to improve our local parks. For Hiawatha Park we worked with the Chicago Park District and split the cost 50/50. For Shabbona Park we worked with St. Rep Arroyo and the Chicago Park District to split the cost 3 ways. These park improvements are not only great for the children to have new playgrounds but help improve the neighborhood as a whole which will help attract more families and businesses to the area.

We're moving from North Center to Portage Park in the next couple of weeks and need to change our wifi provider. It looks like Comcast might be our only option at the new place? We'd love to avoid them if possible, though. Any internet service provider tips?

  • We use AT&T U-verse for our internet and television service. Love them! No wires

  • Ramona's idea worked like a charm. My husband called saying he wanted to cancel and he was switched to the retention department. A very nice lady who asked "How can I make you my most satisfied customer today?" We cut our home phone minutes to 200/month which took 70 bucks off the bill for 12 months. She said sales won't transfer a call to her unless you ask for retention or mention cancellation. Kind of dumb way to work it, but there ya go.

Catch Basins Cleaning

I had recently seen a list of posts from May - Aug about flooded basements and plumbing services and serveral people had suggested A J Sewer in Wheeling. I live in Portage Park and was having problems for awhile a finally called them. They were very professional from the woman on the phone to the guy that cleaned the catch basin out with the suction hose and the guys that rodded the pipes. I am telling eveyone I know about the great service. I was tired of pumping water out of the basement and just as they finished, it started to rain. AH what a relief.

THANKS A J SERWER

  • Is there anyone here who can provide me with a recommendation on a plumber/sewer service that is expert with catch basins and perhaps do the rerouting to orphan it? Please reply or PM me. Thank you so much!

  • kitty -- get three bids. IMO there's a somewhat standard charge by all the companies for standard sewer jobs. Because labor is about 80% of the cost and they all pay their workers the same. The only variable is the degree to which the bidder departs from the typical charge based on taking a squint at you and your possessions.

People can rant and rave all they want, about how much crime there is here. After 34 years, I can tell you PP, Jefferson Park and Dunning are great and i'm happy to be in Portage Park. I don't need to see statistics. Portage Park is awesome because i say so, and many others are starting to catch on.

  • it really does seem to make a huge difference where exactly in pp you live and where you came from before living here. I grew up farther north and west, not much farther, but in the city a couple of miles makes a huge difference. The area of pp I live in is a complete nightmare. But sure it pales in comparison to wicker park or uptown in crime stats.

Save the dates: The ICHE Annual State Convention will be held at Calvary Church in Naperville on June 4-6, 2015!

The ICHE Annual State Convention is a wonderful experience. Come listen to great speakers offering sound instruction, participate in corporate worship, fellowship with other home school families, and visit the exhibit hall, giving you the opportunity to physically review curricula and other schooling resources. If you've attended a past convention, we look forward to seeing you again. If you are new to homeschooling, we encourage you to take advantage of what the state convention can offer - all in helping you train up your children in the way they should go.

Too late for Nick Sposato?

As the election nears, it appears Heather Sattler is the only serious candidate running in the 38th Ward. A volunteer for Nick Sposato came to my door asking if I was interested in supporting Sposato along with putting up a yard/ window sign. So far, there is no reason to support him. No social media, website, nothing that gives us an idea that he knows his new Ward and the issues we face.
