I haven't called it in to 311 yet, but the barrel in lot 18 is overflowing as well, and it is clearly household trash.

 Tonight at the Pizza Hut at Howard and Ridge there was a shooting. Victim alleges that it could be the result of the parking dispute earlier in the day at a location on the Chicago side of Howard Street. Victim believes the shooter felt disrespected as a result of the argument.

I really can't think of a better reason to shoot someone.

So today's daily bulletin reported way too many incidents. However there were three car burglaries in the eighth Ward, all cars had unlock doors.

 Many of you know that at night and other times during the day people who are intent on taking your stuff check car doors for those that are unlocked. These people will take your stuff. Please protect your property and lock your car doors. Yes, I know an unlocked door is not a formal invitation to rob you, however it works out that way.

jeannie and all, Jeannie, thanks for the info.

re the light cover plate - also, we have asked the police chief to comment.

The specific location is 329 Custer. Initially the cover plate was
replaced with an original aluminum cover. After this was taken a second
time we assumed it was for the aluminum scrap value and replaced the
cover with a plastic one that had locking screws. This has also been
broken and removed so our next step is to cover it and secure the cover
with several banding straps.

OK, folks, here's a new one: there is a street light in front of 329 Custer. I just checked with 311 because I know I have called this in before, and as it turns out, it has been reported multiple times going back to last summer that the access cover to the light pole is missing. And the City has replaced it every time it's been reported.
Who on earth steals an access cover on a street light pole? All I can think is maybe it makes a handy spot to leave small items, like Ziploc baggies or something, for pickup.

We have an elderly microwave in need of a repair and I remember seeing a recommendation on this board some time ago for this kind of service. Can someone repost or recommend again? Thank you! 8th Ward referrals are the very best.

Speaking of dog waste and ground feeding, The law requires you to pick up your dog waste and ground feeding, in your yard on the parkway, in a park on the street, under the viaduct is against the law in Evanston. Simply put dog waste and ground feeding our major contributors to rat populations in neighborhoods.

Got a new garbage can delivered yesterday. The top doesn't fit so the can won't close. Not much of a rodent deterrent. Placed a call to 311.

Thanks for the all the info! So glad it was caused by the sewer and not geology. I actually worry about stuff like this!

Rachel: I am not minimizing the seriousness of sink holes in general - they can swallow houses etc. However, in our own little geological world the only ones that I can think of off hand are like the one on Monroe where old infrastructure like the sewer collapses, washing out the support and a hole opens. The same thing happened a couple of years ago on Brummel at Custer where a small truck sank in. In Skokie, the yellow line closing was due to the same kind of thing, except on a bigger scale and apparently cause by work being done in the area.
