  • If you call 911 they will send a patrol car to check it out.

  • As others have said, call 911 in mass (and get others to do the same) always giving details of the people involved, as well as getting the name of whomever you are speaking with on the call. All that said, the sad reality is that it's a slow, painful process....

    As others have said, call 911 in mass (and get others to do the same) always giving details of the people involved, as well as getting the name of whomever you are speaking with on the call. All that said, the sad reality is that it's a slow, painful process. There are a few trouble areas in my neighborhood and neighbors consistently call 911 and complain to the alderman with little avail. Things have definitely gotten better, but not at the pace you would think/hope. There's sometimes little accountability and a general sense of apathy towards loiterers who can have a major effect on an area.

Water Meter Installation 2018 Update

After getting this water meter installed in 2014, I really wanted it to be a ripoff, like most other city services. But after four years of water bills, I can safely say that unless you're emptying Lake Michigan every time you shower, a metered account is a better deal. If you're on the fence, just do it.

    Water Meter Installation Update - 2018
    Four years after the installation of my water meter, the half-yearly charges are less than a quarter of what they were when I was being billed for non-metered water. It's a great deal, as long as you keep the bill paid on time, which, of course, you do with all your bills.
