WATER: Non-metered account v metered for 2-flat

Hi neighbors, Just curious if anyone had any success with installing meter save in their 2-flat. My water bills have gone from $300 -$600 per 6 month use, and when I called to inquire, I was told it's because of an unmetered account.

I joked that I should start selling the water to other people to cover the crazy increase, and bizarrely enough the rep told me I should. Oh, Chicago.

Just wanted to inquire from fellow neighbors before I sign up.

  • Last point.
    Based on my experience, I believe most Chicagoans are overpaying when not metered. My bills went down significantly after installing a meter. There are probably some who just use so much water that they may not. I ask you, do you think the city would let you get water at a discount by being non-metered?

  • Our bill was $200+ every six month and had it changed to meter so now $30+ bi-monthly. We also got a rain barrel from the city to water the plants.

Gyms in West Town?

Hi

I'm moving to West Town/UK Village this month from lakeview and am looking for a gym. I know there's Bucktown and WP Athletic Clubs and WP fitness... Just curious if there might be anything closer to Chicago & California?

Th

Thanks!

  • Pure Vibe Fitness on Ashland...West Loop Athletic Club on Randolph...CrossFit Construct and Kareem Fitness on Grand...REACH Beyond Fitness on Chicago...My Time Fitness on Chicago (small place where you swipe in open 24 hours a day).

  • Amy

    Pure Vibes is now Co-op gym. I'm leery of Kareem Team Fitness because Kareem is on the sex offender registry.

Teens selling Tribune for college funds?

I've had several teens knock on my door explaining their success in high school and dreams to attend college. They ask for me to pay $20 for the Tribune and say they will earn money toward college...does anyone have more information about this? It seems a little sketchy to me... Thanks!

    I had a guy come to the door requesting the same thing but this time it was for the kids to do the paper route in an effort to show them the benefit of making money legitimately and staying out of trouble/gangs. I told him that I did not want to provide him with my CC info or money unless I was comfortable that it wasn't a scam. He offered to front money and then said he would collect it later. I started receiving the Trib daily and he never came to collect the money. Now I can't seem to stop getting the Trib!

  • We have had the same kids show up in previous years, but last Tuesday night around 8:00 pm, a young guy shows up at the door in full digital camo BDUs, desert boots and beret--selling Trib subscriptions. At first I thought it was going to be a vet or Wounded...

    We have had the same kids show up in previous years, but last Tuesday night around 8:00 pm, a young guy shows up at the door in full digital camo BDUs, desert boots and beret--selling Trib subscriptions. At first I thought it was going to be a vet or Wounded Warrior scam, but he said it was to help him for his military academy?? I felt bad turning him down as he looked genuinely disappointed, but as previous posters noted, if it's legit, why send kids out to push a dying medium?

Suspicious Man Trying To Open Car Doors

Around 9:45am on Thursday, August 7, a man was seen walking south on Wolcott (Wolcott & Race) trying to open car doors/get into unlocked cars. He was pulling on door handles and obviously did not care who saw him (there is a lot of construction and activity around here lately). Do not leave anything in your car, including loose change. There have been a lot of vehicle break-ins recently.

  • I did not call the cops this time around and here is why: My sister-in-law was the person who spotted this man while she was leaving in her car. By the time I ran outside with my dog, the man was gone (within only a minute or two). I had no description or any information to give the cops. If this man is ever spotted again, he is definitely getting called in.

    Krista, in the last couple of months some residents have had their car broken into on Race and Ohio Street from Wood street West to Hoyne. Many have admitted they had accidentally left their vehicles unlocked. I was one of them as well. I let my son use my car at night and he forget to lock the door. My car was ransacked with minor things taken. A lesson learned.

    However, as a police officer, although your sister reported it to you, it would have been wise for you to call the police anyway. Many officers who patrol the area are aware of the many break- ins, thefts, burglaries, etc.
    Like the other posts had stated, the police will make a contact card on an individual stopped and in the future, if a resident calls the police about a suspicious person, fitting a description of a person they just stopped, even a couple of days ago, that's their lead. Now, the Police know who they are looking for and they can pass on the information to other officers.

    Thank you for your post. I hope the information I provided is helpful for the future.

Stolen Van

Hello - our green Honda Van was stolen from the area of Grand & Ogden between the hours of 10pm and 2am 8/7/2014 - 8/8/2014 - Police refuse to file a stolen report for us as it belongs to my recently deceased mother. If anyone knows any information or has seen it in the area - please let me know. We have lived in the area for over 30 years - Thanks!

  • Sorry Correction its a 2002 Dodge Caravan

  • robin in WRP Tired and Cranky

    Police wouldn't accept a stolen report? That makes no sense; you probably need to show them a copy of the death certificate. Contact you mom's insurance company.

    I am so sorry for your loss

  • Thanks - yea it was just the current on call cop being a complete lazy pile of caca that didn't want to do her job. After a quick FB call out to some friends and family - we have a report filed now. Still - if people could keep an eye out - i would be greatly appreciate it :) Its a grey/green 2002 Dodge caravan..Its crazy that one can accomplish more utilizing social media rather than through their own city.. Thanks again.
