How can we as a community work on reducing the amount of pet waste in Pilsen? Every block has at least 2 piles of pet waste around my area, 16th to 18th between Halsted and Racine. The alderman signs are not working. At this point, its about getting together as a community because it has gone too far. Not only that, my dog tends to eat the waste. So let's save our community and my dogs breath. Should we encourage...
How can we as a community work on reducing the amount of pet waste in Pilsen? Every block has at least 2 piles of pet waste around my area, 16th to 18th between Halsted and Racine. The alderman signs are not working. At this point, its about getting together as a community because it has gone too far. Not only that, my dog tends to eat the waste. So let's save our community and my dogs breath. Should we encourage businesses and home owners in the area to provide waste bags? I know that it's not their problem, but if we care about our neighborhood, our health, the expense could be ever changing. Beer and alcohol bottles are next. I love the culture, small businesses, and the food carts in the morning. It's a really special place to live. Please. Ideas are welcome!

We couldn’t get Jackson Chiu to smile for this photo because he is not one for public recognition. Nevertheless, Jackson is a big part of my staff, serving as our office liaison with Chinatown. Some of us call him “Mr. Service Requests”, because he diligently tackles an insane amount of these for the residents of our ward. When he isn’t working in the office, Jackson is doing one of two things: Spending time with his wife and 1 year-old son, (with another baby on the way,); or two, he's eating. The man loves food more than anyone I know. He even keeps his own bottle of hot sauce on his desk. 🙂 We thank you for all you do, Jackson! #25thWardChicago #MostDiverseWard #BestStaff #Chinatown
