Bad Gas

So apparently I've put "bad contaminated" gas in my car TWICE now...not returning to the same station as the first time...does anyone else experience this in our area?!

What stations do you trust...!? HELP!

    There are other locations but I don't know if they are all serving the same fare.
    Closest one to you Eric is on Irving a bit west of California.

    Does Chicago Take Gun Cases Seriously? You Decide.
    A twice-convicted felon was pulled over in Uptown on November 19 after police said he ran several stop signs and evaded their attempts to stop him. Martise Lewis, 29, crashed his car, jumped out and ran away, police said. Officers soon located him and took him into custody.

    The other question would be how to PAY for longer incarceration. Illinois has no money - prisoners need cells, guards, food, prison administration. I’ve worked in a state prison. There’s a lot of money needed to run them. The lack of resources to pay for imprisoning criminals may be a factor in short sentences and I-bonds.

    "The other question would be how to PAY for longer incarceration."

    By taking away some of the things that cost money those incarcerated have.

311 request timeframe?

I put in a request 8 days ago for an alley light being out (still marked as open) and a request on 12/25 for an abandoned car, still open. Previously the city wasn't this slow with requests, how has your experience been?

  • Robin, I get a service number for every 311 request. The mystery of "closed" requests where the work has not been performed has not been solved.

    For the uninitiated, yes, get service request numbers. Good advice.

    hum - The nice thing about doing it on line is if the request is closed, it can be reopened. Have your neighbors also request

    Chi tech I agree with you. The city has money to throw at medians down the middle of the streets that cause tens of thousands to install and then millions to maintain. These are tax dollars that could go to helping these folks. Mute you too have a great point. Why should anyone walking in the evening, commuters walking to the train have to endure the garbage, the stench, accidentally walking past one while he is urinating? This isn't right either. Many are addicts and that's not okay. They got kicked out of their parents house, friends house, relatives house and now this is the "rock bottom" so does that mean we all need to embrace it?! What about those that are getting help like my son who could have been in this situation. He did 30 days twice at Rosecrans and has been clean for 4 years. The mentally ill I could see having the most compassion for. As for all of the rest no because there are places to get help. I've even given the info on this site and I bet it was never even tapped into. In the meantime I'll keep giving to the ones that I know won't ever be able to get a job because they're so old and so battered that no one would even consider them. As for the young ones with the tats and the ones that are drunk or high throwing their beer cans and bottles on the ground all while begging for more money, they get nothin' including my sympathy.

It is very dumb, dangerous, and traumatizing.

affordable snow removal service/person?

hello neighbors!
We are a new business at the corner of Avondale and Pulaski and we are looking for a more affordable option for our snow removal. We're interested in a professional service for heavier snow falls (over one inch) and/or a local person who could just (perhaps with a snowblower?) take care of our sidewalks during light snowfalls. We've gotten lucky so far this year but there is still (purportedly) a lot of winter days left!

A big finger in the air to whomever decided to call my car in as "abandoned." Moved it for street cleaning a month ago and noticed a flat. Was looking to sell to a scrapper or donate once I had the chance to put the spare on but things tend to get busy around the holidays. Since the tow notice came while I was out of town, I'm looking at fees of over $500 when the car is worth less than $200 and additional towing fees to get it out of the pound.

The sad part is that cars don't get towed for being abandoned unless someone calls it in as being in the same spot for over 7 days. That means one of my neighbors took the time to file a complaint with the city about it. That's some sadistic behavior to free up one additional parking spot. It's winter in Chicago! Do you really think anyone has the time, money, or energy to deal with the auto pound right now?

If, by any chance, you're reading this, I hope you think about how your choices affect others next time you decide to file a complaint like this. We all share the same space. If it bothers you that a car is parked in the same spot for a few days, leave a gd note like a decent human being.

    The city replaced my meter and my bill went ftom $8 a month to $120. I hadn't increased my usage, and the city wouldn't do anything unless I had a plumber certify that there weren't any leaks. I wasn't living there, and they wouldn't turn the water off, so I had someone do it and sold the place. The new owners bought it as an investment, I doubt that they turned it back on.

I would like to tell anyone who is interested that we do not want to be there anymore that you want us there. We mean no harm and we try to respect the community and all the people who pass through on a daily basis. Don't be scared of us. Try to keep an open mind. Notice that when you do pass through that we try very hard to keep it as clean as we can, we usually don't speak unless spoken to, and we never ask for anything. Some of deal with mental illness others have drug and alcohol problems but there are some of us who are very down on our luck with no family or place to go. If anyone would just reach out and ask they would know that we are harmless and we are just as afraid as you are remember we are there all night. We are alone we are treated as if we are not human and sometimes invisible as if this is what we really want sometimes people think the answer is as simple as getting a job which is a real challenge when you cannot keep your hygiene up, get proper rest and have no way to get back and forth imagine how frightening it is to go out all day and look for a job come back and find that the little bit you own has been discarded by the city. For just a minute put yourself in our shoes and maybe do for us what you would want someone to do for you if you were in our position. It absolutely is not as easy as it sounds.

I just wanted to put the word out that if the actual neighbors of people with dogs would stand up for the poor animals when they recognize somethings are not right - it’s cold out and that Dog was letting its owner know it wanted to come inside. Plus- how could the actual neighbors sleep through that barking? It is freezing at night. I just wish I could know who it was to report them.

AT&T Trucks in Avondale?

I've been noticing a bunch of AT&T trucks working in the alleys near Albany and George recently. Anyone know what they are working on? I've heard rumors that they will be expanding their Fiber internet offerings in Logan Square/Avondale, but I'm not sure if they are just doing routine maintenance. I'll keep my fingers crossed because I'd like to have another internet provider to compete with Comcast.

  • I heard from an AT&T tech that they were doing Bucktown too, so probably a good chunk of the northside, Not sure about other areas. He said the goal was to finish installations by end of January at least around where I live.
    Does anybody know what the cost is for the 1 Gbps Internet or other services? Right now I have Uverse at 50 Mbps and paying around $60/month. Uverse TV is way too high so need to do something about that too.

  • kegdepot Belmont TV Fan

    I'm at Belmont / California. 1 Gbps was $80 / month, unless you combined it with DirecTV. If you combine bills (which just makes sense anyway), they take $10 off a month for internet and $25 off DirecTV bill. It was a no brainer.... with the added benefit of cancelling comcast; which felt amazing.

Looking for Xmas Gift? $20 off the new Motiv fitness tracker ring.

I love love love my Motiv fitness tracking ring. It tracks calories burned, heart rate, base metabolic rate, steps, sleep, and the battery lasts for 3 days. It's so much better than the Apple Watch if your counting calories. Just wanted to pass this link on to get $20 off. It'd be a cool present for Christmas!!
