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.

    A 17-year-old reputed member of the La Raza street gang has been charged with murder in connection with a rifle shooting last summer in the Back of the Yards neighborhood. The June 11 shooting was part of a long-running feud between the La Razas and at least four other gangs in the Back of the Yards, Pilsen and Marquette Park neighborhoods that has seen rifles emerge as weapons of choice.
