Permit Needed????

We're replacing a 7x8 foot deck with one that will be 10x10 and less than 5' off the ground. Someone told us we wouldn't need to get a permit. Can anyone give me a definitive answer on this. If we do need a permit, can we use the Easy Permit Process?

Home internet service provider

Can anyone suggest a reasonably priced Internet service provider? I currently have Comcast and they have gotten or should I say, continue to be very expensive. Thanks

  • I checked AT&T and they only offer DirectTV here in the middle of Logan Square, no phone, no internet. So Comcast or satellite are the only internet "options". What a joke! How did we end up with these monopolies that can charge whatever they want!?

  • Resident In Logan I think you are being given a bum steer. I worked for ATT for 25 years before retiring and they DO have phone and internet in Logan Square. try recalling and talk to someone else.

Drive much!?

To the 'gentleman' in the black sedan with 30-day tags who tried to make it through the intersection of Harlem and Bryn Mawr as the light was turning today shortly before noon, realized he couldn't, threw his car into reverse and almost hit me as I was crossing Harlem: yes I felt perfectly justified in smacking your car with my hand. Hope it left a mark.
Next time look before you back up. That's why your brand new car has this safety feature.

Searching for a new family!

I've been a nanny for 17 years with infancy being my specialty. I also have excellent letters of reference. I'm looking for a full-time/part-time of 30 hours minimum. I would be available Aug. 1st. and I live in Edison Pk.

Permit Needed, Part II

Thanks to all who responded to my question about replacing an existing porch/permit required. Now the City Building Dept is telling me I can't do the Easy Permit thing and need to go thru Homeowners Assistance Program. And, of course, when I called 311 and they transferred me to the Permit Office - their mailbox was full and I was told to call back later. (This city sucks). Do I go the DOB way or just do up the paperwork for the Easy Permit process and hope we don't have any problems???

  • My son needed architectural plans showing everything , height width, exact placement of windows, dormer sizes, and everything else. and is now waiting for the city to come and do the final inspection on it.

  • You got screwed by your contractor. Not necessary

    Where to Watch the Blackhawks' Playoff Games in Chicago
    If attending a game is out of the picture, consider watching the game somewhere where you can still be surrounded by fellow fans. Whether the game is home or away, you can still catch the excitement at one, or a few, of the many official Blackhawks bars across Chicago.

  • Jeffrey Littleton Artist/ Chicago/ Uptown

    Then I guess it will be a CUBS special before too long,..or the CrossTown Classic?

cleaning out the closets

produced a box of HO train tracks, a bag of miscellaneous toys and a small (maybe 8 inch screen) old school portable tv.

They're atop my dumpsters in the alley connecting W. Thorndale and Ardmore, just off of E. Circle.
