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.

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!!
