Snow Removal for a 6-flat

Hello neighbors -
The snow-removal company that my building has contracted with for the past few years just stopped providing snow removal. We are self-managed and looking for a snow removal service for the winter. Any recommendations out there?
Best,
Julia

  • try propertycare1 @ 773-551-1246 ask for Robert. He has great rates and offers bundled services like common area cleaning and landscaping. WE LOVE HIM!!

  • I hope that snow removal company provides other services than snow removal... Its probably not a good business plan to drop your only service.

Homeschooling Group/Drop Off

Is there anyone homeschooling kids in the middle school to high school age groups who lives in the Edgewater/Andersonville/Uptown/Rogers Park areas?

I was thinking about starting an informal dropoff at Edgewater Library (Broadway and Elmdale) where kids can do their school work and hang out for two or three days (possibly five) each week--maybe four to six hours each day. If you're interested, let me know. (I haven't decided on the hours yet.)

Once interest is gauged, I'll host an informational meeting at the library.

Landscapers blowing leaves into street

Due to the wind on Halloween leaves, twigs & branches came down. I spent a lot of time racking & bagging the leaves. Neighborhood contract landscapers on the other hand, used leaf blowers to send the leaves into the public streets as well as onto neighbors property. Is that legal?

  • Yes, call 311. However, it probably won't change anything.

  • Andrew Strand West Eadgewater Area Resident

    The following appeared in Alderman O'Connor's recent newsletter. "Leaf Pick-Up. Don't forget that the city will pick up bagged leaves through November 21st. Simply call 311 to schedule a pick up."

Change in Tap Water Smell/Taste?

Has anyone else noticed a slight change in the smell/taste of tap water in the last few days? It's hard to peg but its somewhere between chlorine, a faint rotten egg, and iron.

  • NYCtoRP NewToRP

    No, I only drink bottle. I never smell my water. Is there a problem occurring?

  • ctc Yes!

    City water department called and told me to check my water heaters anode rod. I checked and my water heater has a stainless steel tank and no anode rod. Spoke with the water reclamation district who assured me that the emc pumping had no connection to my tap water. The tap water odor has since subsided so I suspect it had something to do with the Chicago water supply treatment...if that's the case, here's hoping that it was more helpful than harmful.

Monthly Parking

I'm thinking about moving into a condo near Sheridan and Glenlake Ave. It doesn't come with a parking spot so I'm wondering if any one knows of monthly parking lots in that area? Thanks

  • Thanks everyone! I've tried all those but nothing is panning out. All the places I called are full and have a waiting list.
    I went out last night with a Realtor and saw some really nice places with parking included for a small fee. I'll probably go with one of those.
