Who drove across our lawns today?

The 7200 block of Oketo Ave. is in the process of being paved, so someone decides to avoid the barriers by driving across our lawns today to the end of the block about 1pm.

I wasn't able to access the Every Block Oriole Park site to ask a question. We live in the area and are seeking a reputable company to remediate mold in our closet. It is black mold and needs to be removed ASAP. I used Home Advisor but the contractor they referred me to wanted to charge us a lower price if we would pay cash instead of by check or credit card. We do not feel comfortable with that, as we would have no recourse, if something went wrong with the work. We are looking for a company that is licensed and bonded and that is EXPERIENCED and COMPETENT. We would like a contract to have the mold removed, assess for any tuckpointing damage, identify any moisture source/s and then repair the closet. We might be willing to use a separate contractor to put insulation against the bricks, install green board drywalls and re-install the few shelves and coat rack.

We are hoping to find someone any of you have used who can help us within the next two weeks. Has anyone used a qualified company they can recommend to us?

    Tricky topic,I'm by no means an expert but have some limited experience.
    Not all mold species are harmful in small amounts and may be addressed with a solution of bleach,depending on the size/severity of the area. If moisture is coming from the exterior it's recommended to open up the wall and dry out the wall cavity, naturally you'll need to address the moisture infiltration problem prior to closing up the walls . You never really know the full extent until you see inside the wall cavity which can make estimating the cost/scope difficult. Possible risk to persons can be elevated if there are people in the home with compromised immune systems,elderly,or infants.
    I no longer have contacts that specialize in that field,thus no one to recommend, but you may end up with a few different contractors, carpentry, masonry for repairs and remediation for removal, as not all companies have staff or credentials that will/can do the entire job. I would recommend if you are to hire contractors to get several bids and have the company(ies) you select provide you a certificate of insurance prior to starting work.

  • We have a raised ranch house with a front closet that does the same thing. No ventilation mixed with no insulation makes moisture a problem in that closet. Mold wasn’t bad kind so we used a mold killer spray and now use a rechargeable hanging mini dehumidifier for the last 2 years. No mold since then.

Participatory Budget for 41st Ward

Spread the word to all of your friends in the ward about the opportunity to have a say on how the 41st Ward budget of $1million gets allocated.

First, you will be asked to vote on the % of the budget that gets spent on street resurfacing.

Second, you will be asked to vote on how the remaining money should be allocated by ranking 3 bundled community project packages. One of these packages includes the repair/replacement of the NORWOOD PARK sign near the train station. Each voter can rank the projects (from 1 - 3) in order of importance to them.

Voting through 5/11 @ Alderman Napolitano's office:
7442 N Harlem Ave
Mon. 9am-7pm, Tu-Fri 9am-5pm

  • Jac Charlier AKA Citizen Jac Citizen-led solutions for better community

    I voted again this year and as part of the Edgebrook Community Association (ECA), we had Board members staffing the voting. I'm glad the 41st Ward has a form of PB. This is a good thing.

Edgebrook VOTE NO to Higher Property Taxes proposed by the Chamber of Commerce

Anyone who owns commercial property in Edgebrook, or who is a business owner or tenant in Edgebrook, or any resident of Edgebrook that doesn't want these added property taxes pushed into the costs of your food or daycare or other services you pay in Edgebrook should read this:

The Chamber of Commerce wants to tax us more! They have applied to set up an SSA (Special Service Area) to increase the property taxes of all commercial properties along Devon, Central,...

Anyone who owns commercial property in Edgebrook, or who is a business owner or tenant in Edgebrook, or any resident of Edgebrook that doesn't want these added property taxes pushed into the costs of your food or daycare or other services you pay in Edgebrook should read this:

The Chamber of Commerce wants to tax us more! They have applied to set up an SSA (Special Service Area) to increase the property taxes of all commercial properties along Devon, Central, Lehigh and Caldwell by up to an additional 10%! And to for this tax to be approved, they only need 20% of the property owners to agree. What's worse, if the business owners don't respond to the vote, that counts as a YES!

WE NEED TO STOP THIS TAX NOW!!

EVERYONE NEEDS TO ATTEND ONE OR BOTH OF THE MEETINGS THIS WEEK TO SAY NO!

There are two meetings to attend this week: Go to one or both of these meetings to say "NO" to the SSA:

1. Tuesday, April 17, 4:30-5:30 pm, Edgebrook Library, 5331 W Devon, Chicago, IL (Although their mailer says there is street parking on Devon, they must not have noticed the street is undergoing a massive sewer expansion and there is no parking on Devon right now- allow extra time to find parking)

2. Wednesday, April 18, 5:30-6:30 pm, Edgebrook Library, 5331 W Devon, Chicago, IL

Even if you are a tenant and not the property owner, an increase in property taxes may flow to you if you have a net lease.

I don't want to see more businesses leave or fail because rents need to be increased due to a tax hike like this. I don't want to have to pay more when I got out to eat or pick up my kids from daycare because the taxes get passed along to us in the end, even if you don't own commercial property!

Please forward this email to anyone you know in Edgebrook, especially business owners, property owners, shoppers in the area and concerned citizens!

Please call me with questions.

Thanks,

    I was at both meetings. It was pretty clear from both meetings that the business land owners and business tenants don't want any new taxes. They don't believe that the services proposed here would actually decrease vacancy or increase revenue for the existing businesses. It was also clear that despite the chamber saying they mailed notices in March to all of the properties, most people had no idea there were even meetings for this until they saw it on social media. Many of the land owners and business owners still do not know and were not at the meetings.

    The best way to stop all of this now is for everyone (whether a land owner, business owner, or just a consumer that doesn't want to pay more when they buy a pizza or pay for day care in Edgebrook) to call their Alderman as well as the Alderman of the two wards in downtown Edgebrook.

    North side of Devon: Alderman Anthony Napolitano: 773-631-2459
    South side of Devon: Alderman Margaret Laurino: 773-736-5594

    The Fake Facebook Pages Targeting Vietnam Veterans
    The pages are operated out of Eastern Europe and the social network took almost two months to shut one of them down. The page was ultimately taken offline for copyright infringement. But two more like it-" Nam Vets" and " Vietnam-Veterans.org," both of which are registered to the same Netfinity JSC of Bulgaria-were subsequently discovered.
