    Ask if they can have Debbie schedule a Safer cleanup with Don's crew. They do an excellent job of clean up.

    Then ask if the Weed sprayer can come and spray at the alley and around paremeters of lots with metal post so there is less growth that has to be hand hacked.

    Then ask if Josie can have Rat Patrol come down your alley. They need to Bait and order replacement garbage cans, and replacement for damaged cans. If you have lots of can theft, residents need to put cans in and out of the alley for garbage pickup days to avoid more theft.

    We are STUCK because we cannot get CPD to catch can thieves and arrest them or give them a ticket. Same for those who litter. Fill in a form 21-235 form and turn it in to the Superintendent. CAPs ois supposed to be the mainstay of ordering city services.

    Search COMMUNITY CONCERNS AND CITY SERVICES,, 2018, Directive and you can see it

    Read the Directive. Reroute orders to CPd CAPS and DEMAND from the Superintendent the District people do as he directed.

    The problem is ACCOUNTABILITY in every city department. Crews get dispatched. They may or may not do the work you ordered. Nobody sits on their heads until it gets done the right way. Emailing directly their Commissioner and telling the Commissioner the truth of what is happening in the field is one GREAT way to get the work done.

    It has taken a long time but we cleaned up a disgustingly filthy 6-8 block area. It was a real struggle of wills between union feet on the ground slacking and their supervisors. The Mayor and Commissioner of a department yield a big bat.

    Redirect your strategy for clean up. This method will work. It just takes followup after followup after followup.

    If you have time to walk with Rat Patrol, the Safer Crew, other City crews the job done will be better. Why, you are watching. You will be the only person watching because typically supervisors let false reports get submitted and it looks like things are good in the field.

    If you follow this protocol; post the results and how fast you got results. SHARING success is the best way to get things done faster, better, cheaper.

The couple made it to the Austin Boulevard stop and headed to the Topper’s Restaurant & Cocktail Lounge in the 300 block of North Austin Boulevard for a drink to calm their nerves.

Chicago police officers, Eigel said, had pulled up to a clothing store near Madison and Pulaski and backed their squad cars up to the shop's rear. They then loaded their trucks with as much as they could haul out, he said.

When he finished his shift, Pirjevec returned to the Fillmore District police station at 4001 W. Fillmore St., which was a half block away from a nearby viaduct and train tracks. The area was nearly pitch black, Pirjevec remembered, save for the glow of one street light.
