Rahm Caves to the Koch Brothers and Sells The People Out

Rahm talked tough to quiet people down and then he sold us out. Even the mayor of Detroit stopped the dumping in his city and now Rahm wants to give them years to cover it and even let them burn this filthy stuff in Chicago. It's time we tar and feather him and run him out of town with every alderman that votes with him on this.

Rahm talked tough to quiet people down and then he sold us out. Even the mayor of Detroit stopped the dumping in his city and now Rahm wants to give them years to cover it and even let them burn this filthy stuff in Chicago. It's time we tar and feather him and run him out of town with every alderman that votes with him on this.

Faced with public outrage about gritty black dust blowing through Chicago’s Southeast Side, Mayor Rahm Emanuel talked of forcing towering mounds of petroleum coke out of Chicago and outlawing new piles with costly regulations.

But the fine print of a zoning ordinance unveiled Tuesday by the Emanuel administration opens the door for greater use of the high-sulfur, high-carbon refinery byproduct in the city.

Under changes outlined at a hearing of the City Council’s powerful zoning committee, companies would be allowed to store and burn petroleum coke in Chicago if “consumed onsite as part of a manufacturing process.” The special exemption also would allow companies to burn stockpiles of coal.

The changes appear to be a step back from Emanuel’s tough rhetoric about petroleum coke, also known as petcoke. In February, the mayor told local television and radio stations he wanted to drive petcoke operators out of town.

    I get it that Americans are supposed to have no problem with capitalists sitting around, doing nothing, making money on other people's labor. But it seems like that's not enough for them. They want other people to be miserable. These guys already have billions of dollars so that they and their descendants will never have to work. But they still want to poison our air and water to earn what must be like pennies to us. What's up with that? Do you have to lose your humanity when you get rich?

911/311 Emergency Communications Sector Meeting

Many residents have asked for clarification on when to call 911 or 311 for emergency and non-emergency situations.

The 004th District has invited the Office of Emergency Management and Communications (OEMC) to make the
distinction on which is appropriate for a particular situation.

Join us for an insighful discussion on how to maximize the effectiveness of these critical City services.

Police Harassment

Instead of the police doing their jobs and catching criminals, they'd rather waist our tax money harassing hard working law abiding citizens! On a monthly bases, my husband is taken down to the jail for nothing. Oh wait, "because he fits the description of someone they're looking for"! A man in his 50s and in dress clothes fits the description? Its like they have something against him. They hold him for hours only to let him go without giving him...

Instead of the police doing their jobs and catching criminals, they'd rather waist our tax money harassing hard working law abiding citizens! On a monthly bases, my husband is taken down to the jail for nothing. Oh wait, "because he fits the description of someone they're looking for"! A man in his 50s and in dress clothes fits the description? Its like they have something against him. They hold him for hours only to let him go without giving him all of his property like his cash and/or cell phone. There's no paper trail or nothing! Then when he calls they give the same line "we don't have you in our system sir". This is very depressing for us. We have to take losses do to this ! I AM TIRED!!!!!

    You may want to voice your concern at a CAP meeting. The following article may be helpful: The full article can be found at http://www.flexyourrights.org/faqs/how-to-report-police-misconduct/

    There are several steps to the process of combating police misconduct. You must approach them in a calm and organized manner.
    Step 1: Write everything down

    This step is extremely important and must be done as soon as possible after the incident. It’s easy to forget small details over time, and there’s no way to know which facts will make a difference later on.

    In your own words describe everything that happened from the very start of the police encounter to the end. When quoting yourself or the officer try to use exact words. Be specific about the location, time of day, etc. Replay the events slowly in your head to help remember as many details as possible.

    Also include witness’s names and contact information and the officers’ names, physical descriptions, car number and badge numbers. If necessary, return to the scene of the incident to talk to possible witnesses. This might also help jog your memory about other important details.

    Only include facts that you’re sure about. Be very careful to avoid inaccuracies. These can easily damage your credibility and undermine your important work.

    Tip: It’s okay if you didn’t get the badge or car number. An officer’s identity can be established with a time, location, and physical description.
    Step 2: Consult with an attorney

Chicago to ratchet up road resurfacing effort

The work, set to begin in spring and wrap up by late November, will be divided among CDOT, the city Department of Water Management, private contractors and utility companies, officials said.
The city has received about triple the number of pothole complaints — more than 47,000 since December — compared with the past two winters.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel has announced five strategies over the past two months to fill the potholes until more permanent repairs can be made.

The 22 miles of arterial streets added to the summer resurfacing list include:
• Halsted Street from the north branch of the Chicago River to Lake Street.
• Lake from Kedzie to Austin avenues.
• Fullerton Avenue between Ashland and Milwaukee avenues.
• Three sections of Bryn Mawr Avenue, from Pulaski Road to Central Park Avenue, from Sheridan Road to Damen Avenue and from Cumberland Avenue to East River Road.
• Archer Avenue between Harlem and Sayre avenues.
• 35th Street between Ashland and Racine avenues.
• 55th Street from Narragansett to Cicero avenues.
• 59th Street from Pulaski Road to Sacramento Avenue.
• 63rd Street from Central to Cicero avenues.
• King Drive between 37th and 51st streets.
• Ashland Avenue from 39th to 63rd streets.
• 99th Street from Western to Genoa avenues.
