City of Chicago Water Management Complaint

I have been dealing with this for over a year. The water department came out after having a plumber do the inspection with them and they "fixed the problem on the street". Fast forward to rain season again this year and I'm getting water in the basement again. Had to pay again, inspection, agreed it's on their end, it's been two weeks and they haven't returned to do the work yet. In the meantime I have water in my basement,...

I have been dealing with this for over a year. The water department came out after having a plumber do the inspection with them and they "fixed the problem on the street". Fast forward to rain season again this year and I'm getting water in the basement again. Had to pay again, inspection, agreed it's on their end, it's been two weeks and they haven't returned to do the work yet. In the meantime I have water in my basement, the worst amount I have gotten yet, for 4 days now and it won't drain out. Today finally it's gone down to half but it also started raining again afraid it's going to go right back up. This turned off my water boiler and we have been showing with cold water for 4 days and can't get the water boiler back on. Who is going to pay for all of this water damage to my basement?

    Warmer temperatures have to be on the way. For many Chicagoans, it is what we start telling ourselves around this time of year; it's the mantra that helps most of us get through the sometimes brutal and snowy winters. Thoughts of walking or biking on the lakefront, BBQs in the park-any park-, outdoor pools opening and the last days of school.

Chicago, 30th Ward Crime - Chopin Park Gangbangers

The following video portrays the true situation that 30th Ward residents live under Ald. Ariel Reboyras. An ineffective, lazy alderman who has repeatedly denied the existence of the increase in crime in the area. He can doubt no more of the terrible job he has done since 2003. Chopin Park is literally next to St. Ladislaus Parish, and formerly St. Ladislaus Elementary School until it closed in 2014- due to low enrollment, which isn't a surprise. Who will send their...

The following video portrays the true situation that 30th Ward residents live under Ald. Ariel Reboyras. An ineffective, lazy alderman who has repeatedly denied the existence of the increase in crime in the area. He can doubt no more of the terrible job he has done since 2003. Chopin Park is literally next to St. Ladislaus Parish, and formerly St. Ladislaus Elementary School until it closed in 2014- due to low enrollment, which isn't a surprise. Who will send their child to a school in an area that has clearly been neglected. And not to digress, but Notre Dame High School for Girls, which was also in the 30th Ward closed because of Ald. Reboyras' policies as well. Higher taxation and higher crime don't translate into higher enrollment into these neighborhood schools. Watch St. Patrick High School to follow the same fate if Ariel Reboyras gets re-elected to four more years in 2019. ‪

  • I'm not a Reboyras fan but he had nothing to do with Notre Dame for Girls closing. It just wasn't a good school and parents are not going to waste their money sending their children there.

  • The area isn't becoming that enticing to raising a family, let alone to send their kids to schools in the area.

  • Tom Concerned Neighbor

    Your post is almost two years old and shows today 2018 Ald. Reboyras is an out of touch, in over his head, rubberstamp Alderman. He supports Rahm Emanuel almost 100% of the time. The guy is soft on crime and he's the Chairman of Public Safety! If he can't take care of his own "home" neighborhood, he definitely can't take care of the whole city.
    I will work precincts yo get people to vote him out!
