City of Chicago Building Inspectors Not Doing Their Job.

I reported over a month ago a two-building whereas mexicans had been rehabbing this two -flat without a building permit and without a dumpster. They were throwing the drywall, the old electric box and ports and old plumming into the back yard and the debris from the dust and pieces of drywall and garbage is flying all over the neighborhood and into my own yard.

I reported over a month ago a two-building whereas mexicans had been rehabbing this two -flat without a building permit and without a dumpster. They were throwing the drywall, the old electric box and ports and old plumming into the back yard and the debris from the dust and pieces of drywall and garbage is flying all over the neighborhood and into my own yard. I put this complaint into the 311 system as an emergency and spoke on the telephone with an Inspector within the building department, to the current date July 15, 2014 no inspector, no violation given for rehabbing w/o permit. The new owner of this building obvious has ties with the building inspector because I even report this to Alderman Michelle Harris but of course we dont expect any results from her office, which is a joke to the south side 8 ward. This is why neighborhoods and blocks within the communities go down in property value. She and the city allows these people to come in and work without permits and they destroy these homes from which they are not licensed contracted and make a mess of the valued properties in the black neighborhoods. This whole City of Chicago Building department should be shut down. This is why those firefighters were killed in 2010 because the building should have been torn down and the inspectors of course took money under the table and didnt do their jobs in inspecting that building, now those men lives have been destroyed because of their negligence and "Don't give a dam attitudes". There is about to be a media report on this building and we need the neighborhood support because if you bought a house or building, they would shut you down if you didn't have a permit to add a deck, enhance your property and will shut you down. Therefore we expect the same from those who do not live in the neighborhood and are buying these properties to fall under the same rules and guidelines.

  • You are incorrectly assuming that because the activity is ongoing, building inspectors have not visited.

    The City takes this very seriously because they/we aren't getting paid. My experience is that this stuff is looked in to with 24 hours.

    It's cheaper to pay a fine than to pay an architect/engineer. (BTW - People of all ethnicities know this fact.). If it really bothers you, keep calling and putting in new tickets with the building department. If they visit enough, it will stop.

  • Wow..there are some ignorant uneducated people in the neighborhood such as Frank also known as Joel V. If you are going to leave a nasty comment, at least go get your GED first so you can learn how to spell...DUMB RAT!!!! LMAO

Recommendations for Concrete Work?

We're looking to get our concrete front steps redone and wondering if anyone had recommendations for people they've used? We have a sunken front patio, common Pilsen/Bridgeport, and a few places we've called have acted like they had no idea what we were talking about.

Thanks!

  • Pilsen Restoration did a great cement job for me. 312-403-1324. I hear this guy does good work, too. He's done things for me, but I haven't tried him for cement yet. Eleno 773-899-7214. Good luck!

  • I had a new concrete basement slab done by Navarro's Concrete, based out of Cicero.
    I thought they did a good job and their quote was less than most of the other concrete contractors I received quotes from.

    You can find their site here: http://www.navarrosconcrete.com/

Abney Associates Ameriprise Financial Advisor: Löytää rahaa maksaa college laskuja taskussa

Olen tallentaa lapsesi college koulutus läpi vuoden, auttoi lapsen tutkijakoulujen ja valvoo hakuprosessin. Nyt onneksi lapsesi on yliopistolla. Mutta luultavasti ei häviä vain vielä--on vielä laskuja maksamaan. Ehkä aliarvioitu tarkalleen paljonko taloudellinen tuki kattaisi. Tai ehkä sinun tiesi koko ajan, että sinulla olisi käyttää joitakin omia resursseja tai ottaa lisää lainaa. Joka tapauksessa sinun täytyy keksiä rahaa pian. Joten jos pitäisi näyttää?

Olen tallentaa lapsesi college koulutus läpi vuoden, auttoi lapsen tutkijakoulujen ja valvoo hakuprosessin. Nyt onneksi lapsesi on yliopistolla. Mutta luultavasti ei häviä vain vielä--on vielä laskuja maksamaan. Ehkä aliarvioitu tarkalleen paljonko taloudellinen tuki kattaisi. Tai ehkä sinun tiesi koko ajan, että sinulla olisi käyttää joitakin omia resursseja tai ottaa lisää lainaa. Joka tapauksessa sinun täytyy keksiä rahaa pian. Joten jos pitäisi näyttää?

PALKKA
Jos sinulla on siihen varaa, osa palkkani sovellettavat lapsesi college laskut on luultavasti helpoin reitti. Sinulla ei ole mitään paperityötä täyttää tai sotkuinen laskelmat verotuksen aikaa, ja voit jättää poistotileille ja henkivakuutus ennallaan.

Useimmat korkeakoulut bill kerran lukukausittain. Ole tarpeeksi rahaa tallennettu tavata jokaisen lukukauden bill harkita varaamalla määrä kunkin palkka kun saat sen sijaan säästää mitä on jäljellä lopussa kuukauden. Kun keräät rahaa, sinun pitäisi laittaa se jossain turvallista (esimerkiksi säästöt huomioon, rahamarkkina-tili tai talletustodistusta) koska lyhyessä ajassa. Jotkut korkeakoulut kuitenkin tarjota neljännesvuosittain tai kuukausittain laskuja pyritään helpottamaan maksun puolestasi. Korkeakoulut voivat jopa tarjota sinulle opetusta alennus jos he veloittaa tilisi suoraan. Lisäksi jotkut yksityiset yritykset tarjoavat nyt 10 kuukauden maksusuunnitelma koordinoida yksittäisten korkeakoulujen.

Suurin haittapuoli käyttämällä palkkani rahaa college laskuja on, että johdonmukainen sosiaaliturvajärjestelmän rahaa kuukausien tai vuosien aikana voi jättää sinua taloudellisesti rahapulassa investoida muihin tavoitteisiin. Voit selvittää, kuinka paljon tukea voit hallita (tarvittaessa), tarvitset laativan yksityiskohtaisen talousarvion kotitalouksien tulot ja kulut.

An Abney Associates Ameriprise Financial Advisor: Finding money to pay college bills out of pocket

You've saved for your child's college education through the years, helped your child research schools, and supervised the application process. Now, thankfully, your child is in college. But you probably can't disappear just yet--there are still bills to pay. Maybe you underestimated exactly how much financial aid would cover. Or perhaps you knew all along that you'd have to use some of your own resources or take out more loans. In any case, you'll need to come up with some...

You've saved for your child's college education through the years, helped your child research schools, and supervised the application process. Now, thankfully, your child is in college. But you probably can't disappear just yet--there are still bills to pay. Maybe you underestimated exactly how much financial aid would cover. Or perhaps you knew all along that you'd have to use some of your own resources or take out more loans. In any case, you'll need to come up with some money soon. So where should you look?

YOUR PAYCHECK
If you can afford it, applying part of your paycheck to your child's college bills is probably the easiest route. You won't have any paperwork to fill out or messy calculations at tax time, and you can leave your retirement accounts and life insurance intact.

Most colleges bill once each semester. To have enough money saved to meet each semester's bill, consider setting aside an amount from each paycheck as soon as you get it, rather than saving whatever is left at the end of the month. As you accumulate money, you should put it somewhere safe (e.g., a savings account, money market account, or certificate of deposit) because of your short time frame. Some colleges, however, offer quarterly or monthly bills in an effort to make payment easier for you. Colleges may even offer you a tuition discount if you allow them to debit your account directly. In addition, some private companies now offer a 10-month payment plan coordinated with individual colleges.

The main drawback to using your paycheck as a source of cash for college bills is that this consistent outflow of cash over a period of months or years may leave you financially strapped to invest for other goals. To determine how much of a contribution you can manage (if any), you'll need to prepare a detailed budget of your household income and expenses.
