The Businesses Donating to your Alderman in your ward

Here is a link of the most Recent Donations to 24th and 28th Ward Aldermen. A Deli gave Ervin $5000.00.. I had no idea that this particular deli did this much business. When you start finding out where your Tax dollars are going to, you may get upset enough to finally VOTE!

    She may b a special Ed teacher who is active in community issues.

    Go to jjfor28.'com her site.

    Look around and see the scourge of blight in28

    All who do not rally to get new representation deserve to live in the deplorable conditions we suffer under,

    Do your best to help us break the scourge in 28 over the past 24 years.

    Nobody can deny stats.

    The best tools are early voting where one can register And Vote on the same day. Go to the bBoard of elections site for requirements and ID. Going to a polling place outside of the ward is a Good idea to escape the spies and any potential intimidation and retaliation.

    Rumors abound about rough intimidation by thugs and how scarey it is. Others talk a out someone showing up at their door asking them to recant their signature to get on the ballot. Those are also fearful.

Vehicles being broken into

Last Saturday on 1/24 and this past Tuesday on 1/27, were broken into. The first was parked in the 1400-1499 N. Kedvale and the second was parked in the 4100-4199 W Hirsch. Both were Toyota vehicles, and both had their windows broken and items stolen.

Just checking to see if anyone else has had this experience recently. If so, let us know. I phoned Alderman Maldonado's office on 1/29 and left the person a voicemail to report this.

Snow is the Building Owner's Responsability!

Just a reminder to all homeowners, condo associations, apartment building owners, and businesses owners:

THE REMOVAL OF SNOW FROM THE SIDEWALKS WHICH ABUT YOUR PROPERTY IS YOUR RESPONSABILITY!

See:
http://www.cityofchicago.org/city/en/depts/cdot/supp_info/sidewalk_snow_removal.html for the most recent regulations, posters, door hangers, and laws. Failure to remove snow from your sidewalks will result in a FINE.

Regarding the removal of snow from the streets:

If you have a car, make certain you are not parked in a TOW ZONE. Many streets become tow zones when snow accumulations reach two [2] inches or more.

Remember, Chicago has more than 9,300 lane miles of roads to clear every snow storm. They use a fleet of 278 snow plows.

The total lane mileage is the equivalent of traveling from Chicago to Sydney Australia every snow fall - at low speeds, in sometimes blinding conditions.

The first priority for the snow plows is Lake Shore Drive and the arterials. Then the secondary streets are plowed.

Side streets are always plowed LAST.

The City of Chicago is NOT responsible for expressways. That is the responsibility of the State of Illinois.

    Thanks for posting this.

    Neighbors, how's the snow situation on your block?

  • What are the snow removal and salting guidelines for apartment building owners with regard to steps and walkways on the back of buildings? Is this the tenants responsibility?

  • robin in WRP misanthrope

    It's true! Becca is back!!
