Looking for someone who can help me now and then. Where is a good place to find someone like this? Craigslist wants to charge me way too much to post this kind of ad on their list

Though the recent cold and rain makes it hard to believe, spring truly is just around the corner. Winter is finally relinquishing its icy grip and it’s time to clean up the old leaves and debris that have accumulated over the last five months. Join me for the 28th annual 49th Ward SPRING CLEAN-UP! This year’s clean-up takes place on Saturday, May 5th. We’ll meet at 9:00 a.m. for coffee and rolls at my 49th Ward Service Office, 7356 N. Greenview (at Jarvis), and then fan out across the neighborhood, picking up trash, cutting down weeds and planting flowers. If you have an area you want to work, that’s great! Otherwise, we’ll assign you to an area that needs attention. We’ll return to my office at 12:00 noon for a fabulous “Taste of the 49th Ward” with food donated from a vast array of 49th Ward restaurants, guaranteed to satisfy every culinary taste. In an effort to make the event as sustainable as possible, this year’s Taste of the 49th Ward buffet will go zero-waste. We will provide reusable silverware and water bottle refill stations to reduce single-use items. Compost will be provided by Urban Canopy’s Compost Club, the same organization that my office uses to compost food scraps in our kitchen, and everything else will be completely recyclable. We ask that you register in advance so we can plan for enough food and equipment for the day. To register and/or suggest a location that needs cleaning, visit: https://www.ward49.com/ward-city-services/will-you-help-spruce-up-the-neighborhood-on-may-5th-fill-out-this-form/

Learn how to appeal your property tax assessment and possibly lower your tax bill at a special workshop sponsored by Cook County Commissioner Larry Suffredin, Cook County Assessor Joe Berrios and my office. The workshop will be held on Wednesday, May 2nd, 6:30 p.m., at the Loyola Park Fieldhouse, 1230 W. Greenleaf (in the first floor gymnasium). The assessed value of your property is one of the factors that determine the amount of property taxes you pay. This assessed value is determined by the Cook County Assessor. The Assessor’s office this week mailed notices of the assessments to every property owner in Rogers Park. If you believe your property assessment is improper, you have a right to appeal that assessment. At the workshop, you will learn how the assessment process works, how to file an appeal with the County Assessor’s office and how an appeal is granted. Staff from the Assessor’s office will be available to answer questions and help complete appeal forms.
