Since at least mid-December the SE corner of Paulina at Ainslie has been taped off as a Tow Zone, supposedly by the Dept of Streets and Sanitation. However, no work nor workers have been spotted a single time. But I do have reason to believe that this is being abused...

The sign posted currently reads, “No Parking-Tow Zone 7a - 11pm through 1/30/18” yet more often than not a lone Dept of Streets & Sani truck is parked inside the Tow Zone at all hours. There has also been a dark red minivan spotted parked there, also in the Tow Zone, also during the listed times. I’ve done a little Google sleuthing and have reason to believe that this is occurring directly in front of a house in which an employee of the Dept of Streets & Sani lives.

In my 15 years in this city I’ve never once seen street work being done in a residential neighborhood at 11pm...

This may all be coincidence, but with how difficult it is to park on this street and the city that we live in, I thought I’d stir the pot and see what was cooking.

Smells awfully fishy to me.

  • So I contacted the alderman's office and here was the responce:

    Thanks for your email. There is an active permit in the city's system for the Dept. of Water Management to repair a defective buffalo box in the parkway there at 4895 N. Paulina. They had an initial dig date...

    So I contacted the alderman's office and here was the responce:

    Thanks for your email. There is an active permit in the city's system for the Dept. of Water Management to repair a defective buffalo box in the parkway there at 4895 N. Paulina. They had an initial dig date on the permit of 12/1 and then it was moved to 12/26. I know that DWM has been grappling with the number of leaks and frozen water services that popped up during the cold snap, and I suspect that this delayed them coming to perform this repair which isn't as critical as someone without water.

    Your neighbor's name is Erick Norton and he is the 47th Ward Superintendent. He coordinates garbage pickup, snow removal, and sanitation code enforcement here in the ward. He is one of 50 such superintendent's in the City of Chicago. I asked him about this and he reported that he was having low water pressure in his home and put a request in to have the city inspect. When they did, DWM found the defective buffalo box and put the item in the queue for repairs.

    I will reach out to DWM today to see if I can get a more concrete timetable. I will also see about having the signs taken down unless they plan to be there shortly.

    --------

    PrinceRobot again. This still doesn't really seem right to me. I've followed up in terms of the time table and sent a few snaps just to prove my point. To be fair, since I started this thread dude has not been parking there. So maybe he's already paying attention?

Salt Is No Substitute.....

.....for timely shoveling/plowing/snoblowing.

Hello Neighbors - I've owned my home for 22 years on Paulina between Montrose and Wilson. It seems, particularly over the past few years, the use of salt on the public sidewalks - not just by multi-unit buildings and businesses - but also by homeowners has increased dramatically.

.....for timely shoveling/plowing/snoblowing.

Hello Neighbors - I've owned my home for 22 years on Paulina between Montrose and Wilson. It seems, particularly over the past few years, the use of salt on the public sidewalks - not just by multi-unit buildings and businesses - but also by homeowners has increased dramatically. As the owner of a dog that I walk twice a day for 40 minutes each time, I'm finding it impossible to get through a walk without my dog coming up lame from salt burns on his paw pads at least 6 times each walk - sometimes even more. Don't get me wrong, salt can be useful on those rare occasions when we have a glaze ice situation or when melting snow suddenly re-freezes. But to simply throw down piles of salt to avoid shoveling or - for whatever reason - throwing it down after shoveling, just doesn't make sense or is just a sign of laziness. As an example, after the last snow event, not a single grain of salt was used by the homeowners on the north half of the block, and yet the sidewalks have been and continue to be perfectly clear following conscientious shoveling or snowblowing by my neighbors. In fact, our sidewalks are actually clearer than many of the sidewalks where we have to dodge the piles of salt that remain day after day after application. In fact, with plunging temps so often coming immediately after snow events, as most people know, salt dramatically loses its effectiveness - yet it lingers on sidewalks for weeks.

Some might say "can't the dogs just wear those booties"? No. While some dogs will tolerate them the majority of dogs refuse to wear them and just push them off their paws.

I ask that homeowners - as well as tenants/condo owners, please ask your snow removal service or superintendent - to seriously limit the use of salt to those situations where it is genuinely needed and is actually effective. And please, do not throw it down just to avoid actually removing snow.

Thank for listening.

    I've lived here for15 years and I always shovel in a timely manner after even the smallest amount of snow. Other posters are correct: There isn't anything I can do about snow that drifts and melts overnight and creates an ice skating rink on the front concrete. I do have a dog and do spent the extra on the expensive pet safe salt because leaving the ice on my front parkway so my elderly neighbors, my mail person, and any other passersby fall and break something isn't an option. Do you know what is an option? Twice daily trips to the Foster Beach Dog Park.

    I agree that calling 311 to report those who don't shovel is import. What you're asking is just entitled whining.

  • We used Aegis Pest Management for a difficult problem in our building. They first brought in their bed bug detection dog and then treated affected units. They explained what they were doing, were very detailed/thorough, and got rid of a bed bug problem that had spread throughout 75% of our building.
    Their contact information is info@aegispest.com or 773-433-3800

    To anyone subscribed to this, I wanted to post an update. After changing ideas on the venue and guests and date, we finally decided to have our wedding at Goose Island brewery on Clybourn next July with about 80 guests. We reserved two event rooms and will have a buffet and bar in one, and the marriage ceremony and dancing in the other. The food and beverage choices are very good and affordable. The sound system is great and we will do our own music using spotify. Lisa the event coordinator is super nice. We are happy with our choice and can't wait!

  • McBean, hope your marriage is going strong! How did your reception turn out, were you happy with the results and the final cost? And would you mind letting us know how much per head it came out to (or a $ range)?

Cleaning lady/service?

We are looking for a cleaning lady for our home. It's officially 4 beds and 2.5 baths, but we are a couple with no children, so it's much less work than it might seem based on straight up numbers. We had a lady who cleaned it for $75, but she kept breaking things... Does anyone have a recommendation for a reasonably-priced cleaning person?

    Maybe this couple works a lot of hours and simply cannot find the time. Before I was married, I lived with my girlfriend. I worked very long days, as did she, in addition to going to school. Sorry after a 12 hour day, the last thing either of us felt like was cleaning house. We had a cleaning lady once a week and our place was always guest ready. You assume because they don't have kids, Mark, that they don't use the other rooms. Maybe they have an office, gym, hobby room etc.

Need a student or retiree Sundays Noon-4pm for dusting of merchandise and shelves plus sweeping.

Pay is $50. Job involves dusting of all shelves, merchandise and products used in treatments, dusting of celling fans, and thorough sweeping. Since this is all that is needed, no need for professional cleaning, so this is perfect for a student or retiree looking for a little extra cash. Location is a semi-basement, which means cobwebs and daddy long legs do show up, so the person has to be ok with removal of small cobwebs and the appearance of the occasional spider. Really pleasant environment, location is off of Montrose near Damen. If interested, please email danielasfacialstudio@gmail.com.

    Hi Wazzup, the east-west runways are new since 2015. And planes now drop altitude and fly very low once they are past the obstacles of lakefront high-rises. Therefore aircraft noise was recently shifted to neighborhoods, where it was never a concern. Planes are now landing on the new Wilson aligned and Berteau aligned runways opened to replace O'Hare's longstanding diagonal runways. Planes are at a pretty high altitude along the lake because of building height, so you don't experience the noise neighbors west of you are upset about. Planes drop to 1,000', then lower about 1200 west. I too have state-of-the-art insulation and super insulated windows. What you have isn't adequate if you live in a neighborhood west of the lakefront with shorter buildings, where planes fly much lower.

Please crush your boxes! Recycling tips...

As the gift giving season arrives, a friendly reminder to please always crush your boxes for the blue recycling bins. It maximizes space for neighbors to also fill the bins. Also, don't place plastic bags in them ~ they jam up the recycling equipment at the plant. And finally, keep everything loose, not in bags, even paper bags. Happy holidays and happy recycling!

  • The problem with dumping paper in with the other recycled items is that it becomes unusable; that is why no one wants our paper to recycle anymore. The plastic bags gum up the machines , and are therefore prohibited, but are the only way of keeping the paper clean.

    China has stopped accepting the paper materials (just send it to the developing world) and now the US companies are trying to sell it to India. Our recycling is not well thought out and hence pretty useless. Until the City comes up with a better way to do this, a large majority of the waste is not able to be recycled at all.

  • ScottK Near Glenwood/Devon in North Edgewater

    Seems like the thing for Chicago to do is find out how things are done in San Francisco and other cities with a high rate of recycling. As with most problems, we tend to act like it's unique to Chicago and that we need to figure it out here.

Hi there,

I saw a ton of posters around the neighborhood about Moobert, so I thought I'd post it here:
Moobert is an indoor/outdoor cat who is white with black spots that look exactly like a cow's. He has a collar on with his name, Moobert Jones, on a tag, and he's very, very friendly.
His owner is missing him very much and would love to be contacted if anyone's seen him--if you have I'll post her number/his picture!
Thank you, let me know!

  • Just found the little guy, number isn't working for him, anyone know the phone number for his owner?

    This story is weird to me. The autopsy was inconclusive and they are searching for the family? My uncle laid dead in the morgue for quite a while with a criminal history and they didnt once fingerprint him to find out who he was. They have this guys name address etc.
