Opt out of ComEd smart meter

Just wanted to bring attention to the ComEd smart meter opt out program. They keep the option pretty well hidden unless you search for it on your own. I'm unfortunately going thru the process of having one installed as I type. Only now have I even known about the possibility of opting out by being so upset with the project that's been going on that I started looking up online info about the smart meter itself.

Just wanted to bring attention to the ComEd smart meter opt out program. They keep the option pretty well hidden unless you search for it on your own. I'm unfortunately going thru the process of having one installed as I type. Only now have I even known about the possibility of opting out by being so upset with the project that's been going on that I started looking up online info about the smart meter itself. They are installing it on the front face of my house so I wanted to see how much it would stand out so I was looking up images of them online. Then I came across the info on opting out. Of course it'll cost over $20 a month to do and supposedly by 2019 you won't have a choice. But things could change in that time if they see enough people having reservations about it. I started getting letters about needing to set up an appointment to have them come inside to plan for the change. Within a couple weeks of the first letter came another letter saying my power would be cut if I did not schedule an appointment soon. Never did any letter I received mention that there was an option to opt out. When I called to complain about that fact, way too late in the process by the way, the woman on the phone was so curious as to how I found out about the option of opting out. They are trying to keep it as hush hush as possible and aren't giving up info freely. Hopefully if you decide to get it where you live they won't be ruining your last couple months of summer tearing up the streets early in the morn & digging up your property so late in the season that cleaning it up will be a hassle in the time constraints of upcoming bad weather. Hopefully it won't be during Halloween so that the kids have dangerous obstacles and are completely prevented from using the sidewalk. I've just described my experience. If people would like to add the dangers and concerns to having smart meters I would love to hear opinions about that. So I big trick from ComEd on Halloween and in general.

Paneras?

Does anyone know why the Panera at 95th Western closed? I know the one inside the Chicago Ridge Mall also closed. I just noticed :)

  • Cindy Many year resident of Mt. Greenwood

    Concerned Citizens of Chatham... Thanks for your response. I TOTALLY agree about the wi-fi crowd. I've complained to the manager at the Panera in Oak Lawn about that. They take up an entire booth for a couple of hours with one cup of coffee. That's what the library is for these days.

  • jb

    I know the manager. the landlord raised the rent. Same reason why Game Stop left. They knew in early 2014 this was going to happen

I am curious...what's happening?...new business ventures!

I haven't read anything in the Beverly Review or on EveryBlock about the construction/renovation going on at the old Munro Landscaping location on the northeast corner of 101st and Western.

Also do you know what businesses are going into the new building being constructed in the Evergreen Marketplace Mall at 91st & Western?

When are the leases up for Panera, Chipotle, Chase, and the other businesses located in the strip mall on 95th between Claremont & Bell.

One more question....I heard two brothers from Beverly own the new pub, Porter & Cullens at 3541 W 99th, (formally A & J Meats in Evergreen Park, 99th & Clifton Pk).
I recall Evergreen Park being opposed to and then suing the RSM regarding the building of a residence for retired religious on 99th St., two of the issues were 1.the building was not being used for education and 2. it would bring traffic congestion to a quiet residental area. Is this the same village that issued a liquor license to a location down the block from three schools?....and is allowing the EP grammar school to agree that their parking lot can be used by the patrons of the pub. Is any or all of this true?

More Flooding....

Did anyone elses basement flood from yesterday's rain? Mine did.. and there is still 7 inches of water in my basement. When is the issue going to be resolved?

    Installing an overhead sewer is definitely an essential basement flood control measure to take to preserve one's property and peace of mind, but other measures may often also be required.

    Older houses in the Chicago area typically lack adequate flood control systems. Twenty years of experience with our pre-WWII house have convinced me that there is no single surefire way to prevent water from getting into a basement (except by buying a house that doesn't have one:)

    Over the years, in our quest for a dry basement, we have installed an overhead sewer system, ejector pump, backup sump pump, standby generator, and an interior French drain system, painted the basement walls with a water sealant, rebuilt a chimney, disconnected downspouts from the sewer line and poured concrete to block up a drain in the basement floor.

    We believe all the measures that we have taken have helped to keep our basement reasonably dry, but I wouldn't be willing to bet there will never be any more water on the basement floor. If too much of it falls from the sky in too short a period of time, it will somehow find a way in.
