Mariachi band still playing at 11:13pm

Isn't there a noise ordinance time limit between 9pm-8am? Some place behind Noble St I want to say is throwing a house backyard party outside with a live mariachi band. I can hear them and I live 2 blocks over and in the back of of the building and can clearly hear them. Why has the police not stopped them and is this not annoying any of my other neighbors?? I can't sleep!!

  • DA long time neighbor

    I live on Noble near the park and I didn't hear anything but do sympathize w you. Since I live by the park, we often have to put up w people playing ball and/or drinking well past midnight. The police will do nothing unless we call them so I suggest you do the same next time especially when you have to get up early the next day.

  • The band was pleasant and understandably it was a Saturday night.... I'm sure we all had party's or attended one that carried on till midnight at one time in our lives... Instead of me complaining I decided to sit on my balcony with a glass of wine and enjoy it...

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.

Buyer Be Aware

I was at Thalia Spice on Green Street a few weeks ago. I got an appetizer on the menu (The Sea Sampler). It was listed on the menu at $13. When I got home I noticed it was listed on the receipt for $19. When I went back to tell management, they showed it listed in their computer at $15. They did give me my money back. It goes to remind me that I should always be looking over my receipt.
