Lost Dogs Illinois shared their post.

This is Rocky. His family thinks he's a Rock Star, and they are devasted that he went missing from the #NewCity neighborhood of #Chicago on 4/21/18. He's a little guy who needs our help to get back home. Please be on the lookout for him in the area around 46th and Laflin, and share his post.

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.
