I am currently the president of our volunteer HOA board in my building. I was volunteered for the position and I no longer am interested in acting as board president. From what I am reading, I have absolutely not obligation to continue as a board member as long as I formally resign.
Does anyone have any experience with this? ANY information is helpful. Thanks!

Hi. I'm moving to W Hood and the building doesn't supply the internet like my last place did. I had hi point with my last apartment that was included in the rent. Any suggestions for internet service? I don't need tv or phone just internet, and I'm not a gamer, I just work at home and watch some netflix at times.

I just moved here, was wondering if anyone had suggestions of good places/groups in the area to meet people. I work till around 7 in the evening and have to come home a walk the dog, so it limits my time span to meet new people.

I live near Swift Elementary, and I'm looking for a monthly, long-term rental parking spot. I've already checked out the usual websites (spothero, parqex, craigslist, etc.). Any information about available spots would be greatly appreciated.

Hi. Right now i have a studio close to Broadway and on Granville. I need a 1 bedroom and saw one on Granville but I'm looking for Aug 1st and they have to rent July 1st so it may be rented by the time i can move in. I saw another 1 bedroom on Bryn Mawr a little further from the Bryn Mawr CTA and half way towards Clark St.
How does the Bryn Mawr area compare to Granville? I will be traveling in the evenings. Also how do the neighborhoods compare?
I love the stores and accessibility around Granville!

I know that our utility bills will continue to go up, but my water usage for my 3 flat went up over 50% for the months of January and February. I've spoken to 3 of my neighbors, all on Catalpa between Clark and Glenwood who have also experienced this huge increase in usage. None of us have leaks, some have boilers and some have central air, and we can't figure out why it says we used so much water.
I wrote Alderman Osterman's office and they said they would look into it. I remember there was a water main project in our neighborhood in January of 2018. Has anyone else seen this spike in their water bill?

Are there any neighborhoods forming yard sales I can join.
Anyone hear the alarm going off in the Bryn Mawr area, closer to Magnolia about 0330 hours? Just moved to the area so I'm unsure as to what it could be from.

We are in the office building at 6228 N Broadway and have been experiencing disturbing activity in the back of our building for months.

We are in the office building at 6228 N Broadway and have been experiencing disturbing activity in the back of our building for months. The building is on the police watch list and we have instructions to call 911 for any disturbances. Please be on the lookout for people hanging out in the parking lot or under the steps in the back of the building. They typically look pretty drugged out and sometimes are on bicycles or in cars and sometimes just on foot and almost "camping" out. They are always there to "see" an upstairs tenant. They knock on the back windows and wait until they are let in then leave after a few minutes. Use your imagination as to what might be happening. This is really disturbing and on Thursday, we could not get out of our door to get to our cars and leave work. Please call 911 if you ever witness any of these people hanging around. I've been told by the Caps Officer and the tactical team that the more calls they receive about this building, the better their chances to remedy the situation.Thanks.

Hi! I am looking for a covered garage space near Broadway and Granville in Edgewater Glen for our 2013 Mini Cooper Clubman. Our current garage rental ends June 30. Please text or call me at (310) 210-3732 if you have a space or know if one. Thanks! Jim

I noticed in Ald. Osterman's weekly update that there will be a State of Edgewater meeting held on June 7th. It "will feature elected officials representing Edgewater talking about their work and how it impacts Edgewater business owners and residents." That, and the list of confirmed elected officials sound great. Though at an inconvenient 8am time, I'm considering attending.
But I was surprised to see a price for admission -- $37.22, including "a small breakfast." Does that make sense to anyone?
Hi! I am looking for a covered garage in or near Edgewater Glen for our 2013 Mini Cooper Clubman. Our current garage is being returned to its owner on June 1, so that's the day by which we're hoping to find a new garage. We can wait, however, if you don't have a garage open in June. Anybody out there near us have a space available? Let me know! 310-210-3732 Thanks!

(Insert lightbulb joke here). Sounds simple, but I have already injured myself following mfr. directions and got only one changed out. Other one won't budge even w/mfr's tool. Maybe I'm not strong enough--definitely not young enough. (No, it's not just a matter of "hold the bulb & unscrew"--these range hood lights were designed by idiots or sadists who hate people who need to cook). I have already injured my shoulder & wrist trying to get the second dead bulb out....

I don't want to go through any apps or clearinghouse websites. I just want someone strong enough to come over soon and do this for a reasonable and normal basic handyman fee. (Abt, the merchant who sold me the hood, wants me to fork over an arm & a leg and wait a week--highway robbery even with a discount). PM me if you can do this.

He clearly points out how violent Chicago is-I told him well he doesn't live here and gasp-people do like living here,not everyone is leaving. He thinks he knows the city just because he works in Stoney Island full-time and then goes back to his bubble in Indiana. I told him working here and living here are two different things. It's too bad the news doesn't talk about the good things in Chicago. They really know how to scare people. I don't even know what to say to him.

Can you get ticketed for not having a city sticker on a private lot? I just got a ticket for parking at the CVS on Broadway and Granville while I was shopping at the CVS. $200. Just curious. They didn't put the ticket on my car, I just got this in the mail. Any suggestions would be very helpful.

On Saturday a room was dedicated in memory of Betty Barclay. This was a nice tribute. Betty gave a lot of her time and effort to the community. Thank you to those that attended and to those that made this possible.
Now if we can only figure out how to also honor Marilyn Pierce. Marilyn was also a major contributor to improving Edgewater. Alderman - can we name Thorndale for Marilyn Pierce?
