Basement flooded from storm on April 9th, 2015

Wanted to see if anyone in Garfield Ridge basement was flooded with sewer water from the storm on April 9th, 2015? I have about 2 to 3 inches of water and I'm trying to determine if it was from the storm or something else. Thanks.

  • Oh great.... they are beginning work on 59th street by me today. Time to look forward to more flooding???

    With last summer's storms my house and the two houses next door to me flooded for the 1st times in the houses' histories . Old houses too. I wonder what has changed. It's not like there haven't been large storms in the 50+ years the houses have been here. Or the huge storm back in April 2013 that had people over in neighboring Riverside/Brookfield out in boats in the street--the storms where all the rivers were over flowing-- we didn't get any sewer backup then. I don't know, it's so weird.

  • Thank you to everyone who responded. I will look into the ideas you mentioned. Have a great weekend.

Beware City revenue trucks stalking area

There is a white van putting tickets on cars all over the area. I've seen 5 cars with tickets.

Sure hope they are targeting every area like this, but I bet the east side of 008 doesn't get the same treatment

    Well let's see swold timer, after seeing them all the time on revenue drives when I lived downtown and now seeing them here you start to ask questions.

    Biggest one is why they cruise tax paying areas and ticket all they can,yet you drive by certain churches on Sunday's in "less fortunate" areas and see double and triple parked , hydrants and cross walks blocked and zero enforcement you wonder why they manage to miss them yet don't miss a thing around here. If they do it here and downtown they should do it all over,equally no matter what

Alley graffiti between 51st and Massasoit/Major today

About half a dozen garages between Massasoit/Major on 51st were tagged last night/early this morning. One has a distinctly threatening message of "How safe do ya feel?" scrawled in red across one garage door. A word that appears to be "DABS", also in red, is scrawled underneath it. I will report this both to Burke's office and the CPD.

  • Chicagodan South Side/North Side

    Cristian, thank you for reporting this. I've included it in my online reporting to the City.

  • Please keep us updated to any other graffiti that you see in our area. As the Garfield ridge neighborhood watch likes to stay on top of these.

Water Metersave Program

I had the new water meter installed in September of 2014. When my payment credit ran out (rather quickly), I got a pretty large bill. Our usage averages about 50 gallons a day. Our bill figures to 169 gallons a day. Found out the water dept. automated phone system has a different meter number than ours. Was wondering if anyone might know a shortcut to the maze I am about to enter in order to correct this and adjust 6 months of billing.
Thanks

  • me

    Dan, this is good to know since my credit also ran out rather quickly ...in only 2 billings! I'll have to check my meter numbers. Never thought of that. There are only 3 people in this house and 2 of those work all day so where is all the water being used? All I can suggest is to contact the media if you don't get very far in your efforts. Good luck to you and let us know how it turns out.

  • Kath Kath

    I know that when they came and installed ours they showed me how to read the meter. There is something on the meter that can tell you if water is running or not. If it shows water is running (which also means the meter is running) when there is nothing on in the house then there is a leak somewhere. You may want to look at your actual meter and see if it's running all the time for a leak somewhere. Otherwise they overcharged you.

Spring cleaning time!

Now that those huge piles of snow have melted, it's time to get out our push brooms and clean up after Mother Nature.
Also, why doesn't the city put out trash cans by bus stops?
While walking my dog by Adam's Furniture I found a full DD coffee cup and McDonald's pop cup sitting on the bench. If there had been a place to toss them perhaps they wouldn't be where people could sit down.
Emptied and walked to the nearest ally gondola.

  • Chicagodan South Side/North Side

    People were leaving all kinds of trash at the Archer and Menard bus stop. I called Zalewski's office for a trash can at that site and got one.

    I attended the Garfield Ridge Civic meeting and was told by the super it wasn't needed at that location.
