Illegal auto-shop from neighbors garage.

Neighbor running an illegal auto-shop from his garage.2-3 cars parked around his house.

Neighbor running an illegal auto-shop from his garage.2-3 cars parked around his house. Since the garage is full of shop equipment & cars, this means at least 5-6 cars are parked on the street outside his house and mine. Loud noise throughout the day, fuel and oil smell, improper disposal of hazardous liquids, no fire extinguishers observed, no permit in window. Constant drop offs of cars or snowblowers and lawn mowers, back yard trashed. equipment everywhere and covered up with brown materials. Smell, noise, illegal activity in this beautiful neighborhood. Police called in several times since the owner is verbally abusive and threatening that he is gonna kill or "take care of us" if we complain. Went to alderman for 60634 zip code and was told to keep complaining and calling 911 every time the neighbor is doing an illegal activity. Attended a meeting at Portage Park with CPD and they said that city will send extra police rounds if needed. Any advice will be appreciated.

Post Office on Irving Park/Narragansett

I don't suppose I need to go into detail...however, the Post Office on Irving Park and Narragansett is much to be desired...meaning the employees there are terribly rude and I am not just speaking of one person...most that I have come into contact with...as well as the post man....and can anyone tell me why he wears a towel over his head and eyes? He wears this towel winter, spring, summer and fall. At first I thought it was because of...

I don't suppose I need to go into detail...however, the Post Office on Irving Park and Narragansett is much to be desired...meaning the employees there are terribly rude and I am not just speaking of one person...most that I have come into contact with...as well as the post man....and can anyone tell me why he wears a towel over his head and eyes? He wears this towel winter, spring, summer and fall. At first I thought it was because of allergies as it was in the springtime when I first noticed it...but it is all seasons. Anyway, I digress...I don't believe anyone ought to lose their job, however, maybe the city can transfer these employees around from area to area...it is usually the first 6 months when they are new that they are polite and helpful....after that...forgetaboutit! As I am writing this my stomach is turning because I have a package to send...I think I will go to the one on Fullerton and Sheffield....that way the rudeness and inefficiency won't affect me so much because it isn't in the area that I represent and live in. Have a good day!

  • We have had the same mail carrier for years. He is family to each of us, a genuine friendly caring man. His name is Jetta.

    Too bad the front desk at the post office can't learn a thing or two from him.

  • In my limited experience at this particular post office (3-4 visits tops), I have nothing bad to say about the staff.

Alderman Sposato's resignation from Democratic Committeeman

I read that Alderman Sposato stepped down from his elected position as Democratic Committeeman. He said he is the most conservative member in the city council. I missed the entire article that maybe explains why he quit and what he means by his statement. Can anyone fill us in as to why he quit and what his reasons were?

Seeking Contractor: Window Capping

Seeking a contractor to cap exterior windows on 2-story Georgian - any referrals or reccommendations?

Near Belmont Heights neighborhood.

  • I wouldn't do capping. Eventually, the seal will loosen, and water will get inside and rot out the wood, and you will not know because the capping is hiding it.

  • Mark 60634 Foundation crack repair pro

    My guys would do the capping. If it's white or brown price would be $85 per window including materials such as aluminum and caulk.
