False Alarm Fines

Anyone know if it's true that residential homes/units don't get fined for a false security alarm? I know that businesses don't get the free pass, but can't find anything that says residential addresses are except from the false alarm fine.

  • When I had my ADT installed 10 years ago. The installer and salesperson warned me that after 3 or more false alarms, I could expect a fine. Thus far, I have not received a fine. I may have had the cops come once because my visiting mother couldn't figure out how to shut it off but I don't even remember now.

  • Juan C. Ayala Belmont Cragin Resident

    No fines in Chicago, I've had them show up twice when we were on vacation and never saw a fine. This was because our house sitter would forget to turn off the motion sensors when she was home.

Center For Neighborhood Technology is our current spot, but they are moving. We've asked Dill Pickle and they are overflowing into another space and their new store won't be ready for ages. We've reached out to Goethe School, but haven't heard back for sure from Principal Kargas. I also contacted Darwin, but haven't gotten a response.

I'd love to hear from contacts at local schools and churches.

We are pretty awesome if I do say so myself as a member. Consider joining.

Thanks so much,

Am looking for a place where they will actually take time to help you look for a pair that will look great and not any pair because they are nice.

Apparently the code states you have to be 30 FEET from a stop sign or traffic signal, however, I can't actually find the code. I plan on attempting to contest it. This just seems like some BS way of creating revenue, especially when there are no signs posted or markings on the curb and there are and have been several cars parked just as close to the stop sign or in the same exact spot for years, and I've never seen a car ticketed ONCE. I'm mad. Anyone have any suggestions for anything I can do to be productive? Otherwise, I will just stew in my anger and out $60. This was at the stop sign at Spaulding and Schubert, near the blue line.

    I had my bike stolen at CBOE, so I looked around and found there is an underground bike garage adjacent, just west. I think it was $20/month. The entrance is on S. Financial Place, just south of Van Buren.

    Willett Tower has a lock up, but I'm not sure if they are public. My building at 200 W. Adams has a lock up, but you must work there.

    Another trick is to buy a very heavy chain, they are way too heavy and squirmy to cut (unlike my wimpy cable). The downside is that they are so heavy. So people buy them and leave them chained at the post in front of work. That's why you see so many "abandoned" locks on posts downtown. Of course, this won't help if you are not working in the same place everyday.

    After I got my bike stolen with using a cable, I changed to a U-lock like Kryptonite and never had a problem again. It was just a Schwinn, so if you have a top-end bike, then your mileage may vary.

    Happy Biking!

Logan Theater and TIF Money?

Am I wrong or did the Logan Theater/Mark Fishman get about $1MM in TIF money to renovate (courtesy of our Alderman)?
If that's the case, how and why do they think they can raise prices to $7? Haven't we already paid for these renovations?

  • Let me stir this pot a bit. Anyone know who is the single largest recipient of TIF dollars? I'll help you out, it's the Chicago Public School District with $350 million committed so far through 2017.

    There was nice news story on WBEZ about this and they said there are two main issues with TIFs: underreporting and lack of transparency to those who pay for them.

    Regarding underreporting, those who receive money have no reporting on the results of the spending. Did the beneficiary actually make measurable deliverables on their request? Is there a system for payback if they don't deliver on their request?

    Regarding lack of transparency, the show talked about never being able to see the separate extra payment on property tax bills for those who pay into TIF districts. You'll never see how much extra you pay toward a TIF as opposed to if you didn't live in a TIF designated zone.

We were staring inside a little, and the owner (Shadi), saw us and invited us in. He was very laid back, and very hospitable. Over Jameson, he talked to us about Sultan's, the progress at Masada, and the impending opening.

The interior is big, and it looks great. I was impressed with the level of detail of every aspect. Shadi and his mother, who was also there, were very polite. They allowed me to take a few pics inside, including a menu written out on a dry erase board.

The place looks great, and just about ready to open. Even the kitchen was set up. The menu looked pretty great also. I'll post a few pics here for you guys to check out.

    What bugs me the most about this whole thing is the fact that they blabbed about opening this place before it was even remotely close to being done. If you know you're going to fund this project with cash only, it should also follow that you know the timeline to opening will lengthen. Don't get people all riled up and excited, only to delay beyond reasonable expectations - it diminishes interest.

Construction "site" at 3060 W Armitage Ave

I live in the building there and the dump and mess that has been left from construction for the bank on the other corner of the street is insane. Anyone on here work for the city? I am positive they do not have permits and have no right to be using the extra land as a place to store their junk. I'm tired of the noise and tired of looking at it! Something has got to be done. That, on top of the graffiti all over the place, is driving me nuts!

Hello, I'm new to this site. I signed up because I appreciate the updates from folks in the area. I'm in the triangle bordered by Milwaukee, California and Armitage.

Does anyone here want to see our Alderman put up signs on existing poles that say "Respect Our Community, Do Not Litter" ? I saw these signs in Andersonville when I lived there and I believe they actually helped. Right now, I'm not sure the folks here are aware of the benefits of not dropping their trash on the street or in front of their houses.

Also, the Chase grammar school should start a no litter campaign in their early grades. It just takes a guest speaker to come out for 40 minutes once a year. That's how I learned not to litter back in the 70's. Since then, the awareness seems to have dropped off.

I'd love to here if anyone has discussed or thought about solving the litter problem in this area.

  • As an parent of a student at Chase school. I can say that they have a great anti litter program. There are several garbage cans outside the main entrance and surrounding the school that are emptied on a daily basis. The students are reminded not to litter on a daily basis and they have a clean up days.

I had to 'make and take' a red wiggler bin to get full credit for Master Composter degree and the winter had them 'especially happy' in the basement so I have two huge bins ready to share. You need a plastic tub with lid that has 1/4 inch holes punched in top for air and then we tear up newspaper, throw in a little garden dirt, wet so it is like a 'rung out sponge', and put in the worms. They eat 'left over' lettuce, coffee grounds, etc (except onions, peppers, citrus). Easy VERY EASY to care for in basement or garage (some people keep them under the sink..no smell)
This is the best 'soil' you will find and excellent for seedlings. You separate the worms from the 'soil' (I can tell you how) and use the soil in your garden, house plants, etc. YOU MUST NOT put the worms in composters or soil outside as they are not native and they eat constantly and will eat all the surface plants.
If you are interested, please let me know and it will be another reason for spring to come quickly!@

Through May 2014, Elevate Energy has partnered with a certified building performance contractor to offer a 20% community discount on air sealing and insulation – the best efficiency measures to keep your building warm in winter and cool in the summer.

To be able to offer the 20% discount Elevate Energy needs at least 10 buildings in a neighborhood to move forward with efficiency upgrades in May 2014. With the buildings located near each other, the contractor can complete more jobs in less time at lower cost, thereby passing the savings on to owners.

What building owners can expect:
• Free energy assessment valued at $400-$600
• No-cost assessment report and work scope proposal
• The best financial package available (we do all the leg- and paper-work for you for free)
• Construction oversight and quality assurance at no cost

Owners interested in moving forward with this work should contact Senior Energy Analyst Jackie Wiese (Jackie.Wiese@ElevateEnergy.org) directly no later than April 25, 2014, to ensure ample time to schedule the assessment and complete the upgrades. We encourage anyone in the neighborhood who is serious about completing improvements to fill out the free application. We can work with owner-occupants and owner-investors alike.

Visit the Elevate Energy website (http://elevateenergy.org/) for details on the 2-4 unit residential buildings program and to read about a building that recently went through the program in Logan Square (http://www.elevateenergy.org/energy-savers-success-story/).

Hit and Run on Logan Blvd and Sacramento?

At about 10:20 tonight, I heard a car screech to a halt and someone screaming. When I ran to see what had happened, I saw an injured man being loaded into an SUV which proceeded to speed off south on Sacramento. Several police cars followed. Anyone know what happened?

  • Hayek Not FDIC Insured | May lose value

    I'm confused... that doesn't sound like a hit and run at all.

    It's either the driver who hit the man doing the right thing and rendering assistance (depending on the injury) or a kidnapping, Bourne Ultimatum style.

  • Right. It didn't appear that the person loading the victim into the SUV was trying to render assistance. It appeared that his main interest was trying to leave the scene with the victim ASAP. My husband believed it was a kidnapping, but it didn't appear that way to me, either. It was bizarre and unsettling, which is why I'm wondering if anyone out there can fill in the gaps.

My husband was walking our dogs today around noon on Logan Blvd near Richmond and two men dropped the leashes of their pit bulls that they charged our dogs. Our gentle greyhound has a puncture wound, or little mutt was lucky. These dogs were very aggressive, and one got loose twice, and the owners did not seem very concerned about it. Nick had to fight them off alone while the owners watched.

After the initial attack, one of the dogs managed to get loose a second time.

One pit bull was white female, about 80 pounds, hanging teats, recently had a litter; the second, sex uncertain, white with brown and black spots on her back, with some kind of doggie backpack. Owners were two white males, heavyset, scruffy goatees, very short hair, balding, in late 20's to mid 30's.

My buddy lost his wallet in Logan Square this afternoon, either in or around New Wave Coffee Shop. The wallet looks like an old piece of notebook paper. Not much in it but would love the ID and other cards.

Please let me know if you've found it.

Looking for Good, Reliable Cleaning Service

I posted on this topic a few years ago but with moving, remodeling, etc. etc., I was never able to get around to actually hiring a service! With that, does anyone have recommendations for a cleaning service (individual or company) for our condo in Logan Square? Trustworthy, reasonably priced, and good work product? We'd like to have them come by the house once a month (I think!)

Thanks!

    Grace, are you hiring at all? I have a friend with lots of experience cleaning buildings downtown and private homes. she had a baby a couple years ago, but is ready to get back into the work force. she has her own truck and is ready to go. :)

Just venting........early morning coffee in LS

I leave for work before 7, and have found it difficult to get a good cup of coffee before that time. The only coffee joint open is Starbucks......not necessarily my favorite.

Anyone have any advice?

    Ipsento is good, although not very quick if you are in a rush to get to work. I would actually suggest getting an aeropress for about $25 and your favorite beans. I started using one of them about 2 years ago and it is so convenient and makes such an amazing cup of coffee that I actually don't want to go pay money for someone to make me some. Plus, it is absolutely the best device for making iced coffee if you like that! I know this isn't a coffee shop suggestion but had to throw it out there as someone who used to always go buy coffee at shops before I got my aeropress. Ipsento actually sells them or you can get it ok Amazon.

Red light camera, diversy and California

Has anyone gotten a 100$ ticket here before? Turning left in the morning onto California is hard because it backs way up waiting to get on 94.

The pictures make it look like I was stopped at the line and the. Blew the red light, but it was yellow when I was in the turn lane changed to red as I was crossing the line

I want to contest not sure if I have any chance

  • @alias_b: So you think saying that a person should get an RLC ticket for running a red is just like wanting to police a concentration camp. Good to know your perspective.

    I definitely suggest watching the video if you get one of these tickets. I got one of these and was thoroughly outraged, until I reviewed the video and realized that what I assumed would be my triumphant vindication via footage showing me cautiously stopping and then making a right turn on red, was mostly in my head. These cameras have unquestionably made *some* intersections safer. whether the contract was awarded fairly/competently and issues of which intersections are appropriately are separate issues. If I had my way I'd ticket everyone who so much as blows through a stop sign, and it would have everything to do with quality of life and nothing to do with revenue. But, police, cameras, street lane and crosswalk striping, etc all cost money. When I was learning how to drive in the late 80s there were cops ticketing for traffic violations on a regular basis, several decades of police department staffing cuts have really taken a toll on basic civility on the street IMO.
