Denise, we have had the same cleaning person for almost 13 years. Her name is Maria Morales. She is very conscientious, thorough and honest.
She can meet you, discuss what you would like done and give you a price. If you would like her telephone number, please send an email to:

Ana's Maid Services. We've been hiring them for a couple of years now and they're punctual, efficient and reasonable. We tried two other cleaning my companies that were just ok (Kulas Maids and Ana's Cleaners - totally different from Ana's Maid Services) info@anasmaidservices.com

Hi all. In serious need of a recommendation for a cleaning person that can come twice a month. With my full time job, coaching and officiating volleyball, I just have no time or desire to clean with what little free time I have. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you. So basically they are not doing what we were told they were going to do at the meeting in the fall. We were told they were going to put them on the schedule that streets with one side of the street parking are on since they both have parking on only one side. finding parking on Wednesday is particularly hard. This is disappointing especially given all the people who haven't paid the wheel tax are still able the park in that area.

Dory if you could please share this with others in your neighborhood who are concerned:
Good Morning Alderman Rainey,
Streets sweeping starts next week. The first sweep for the Mulford and Sherman area is April 7th & 8th and will be every three weeks after that. The last week of sweeping in that area is November 24th and 25th. This will provide the area 12 sweeps during the season.
Our level of service is actually more than once per month and if anyone has questions about missing sweeping services please contact 311 so we can make sure it gets done.
The street sweeping schedule is currently on-line and you can also sign up for text alerts to help remember when to move your cars.
Have a great rest of the day.

You can help the City of Evanston be named the most lovable, sustainable city in the world.

The competition’s eleven-member jury composed of renowned leaders in urban sustainability noted Evanston’s impressive commitment and demonstrable progress toward fighting climate change.

However, Evanston still needs YOUR help to win the We Love Cities Campaign! Everyone is still encouraged to vote daily for Evanston in the We Love Cities Competition through Friday, March 27 at WeLoveEvanston.org.

Evanston is currently in second place worldwide with over 10,000 votes.

When we moved into our home on Harvard Terrace in 1997, we had seriously root infested drain tiles, due to prior owner neglect and some happy, healthy trees doing what trees do - seeking water sources. We used Flader Plumbing to do a full rodding to expertly clear out the roots. It wasn't cheap, but it was cheap compared to $6,500 for a backhoe, tearing up the yard, and laying a new sewer drain. Every year after, in the spring, we had them apply RootX in the drain lines to kill any new root growth in our sewer and gutter drain lines (no harm to the trees hunting for water). Again, it wasn't super cheap, but an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and we never had a sewer problem in 17 years while we watched our neighbors replace sewer lines right and left. We recommended continuing this process to the new owner of our home. Couldn't recommend this approach more highly in a city of (thirsty) trees.

I know parking seems to be a touchy subject for some reason I don't get, but April 1st is coming quickly. I was wondering if we are going to get the once a month street cleaning like we were told we would in the fall on Mulford and Sherman?

I have been using Ex Stink for several years. I usually wait till they have a Big Deal on Angie's List, which is around $100. I don't think that they are much more not through Angie's List, but am not sure. They use camera to check the line. http://www.ex-stink.com/Sewer_Rodding_Spring_Grove_IL.html. Good luck!

Sue I use Flader plumbing for years. The first time I had a problem they came out on Christmas day and rodded out to the street.

 They routed my Dobson house for a couple years and then said look you don't need every year so we'll just set you up for every other year. They would come to the job tell me exactly if there were any roots I can't recommend anybody more highly.

Looks like it is time to get my pipe rodded from the house to the street. I need a good plumber to do this with long rodding equipment since it is over 150 feet all the way out. Does anyone have a rec? I have been very unhappy with all different Mr. Rooter types of services. And since I wasn’t thinking I would need to do it just now before taxes are due I need to do it very affordably if possible. Thank you.

Chief Eddington forwarded this report to me. As you can see Tim Brown has been doing more then irritating people and by knocking on their doors.
I spoke with IDOC and his IDOC warrant was for his being AWOL for 15 days and not reporting properly. That combined with the new Class A misdemeanor charge of Driving While License Suspended (EPD 15-7187) led to his being readmitted to IDOC. He is currently in Stateville in Joliet being processed.
His original charge which he is on parole for is Identity Theft for which he received a sentenced of 3 years. He was in custody for that case from 4/2013 until he was paroled in 10/2014.

Interesting and not unexpected. Amazing how traffic stops can lead to all kinds of things. So, I guess he won't be ringing our doorbells anytime soon.

Mike that's why I've made the inquiry. He was driving without lights on at 3 o'clock in the morning on a suspended drivers license,
And not to mention he had a warrant outstanding from Chicago. I'll follow up when I get the details.

/m31223 Sorry about the double post mess

from autobarn:

I did indeed speak with the sole contractor who is currently working at the job site (the roofer). They claim that the semi truck was not associated with them. They have not received any delivery of roofing materials as they are only stripping off the old roof, as of right now. That was the basis of their claim.
Before any contractor begins work on the site we have a mandatory pre construction meeting which includes the contractor owner/principal and the appointed on site superintendent. Among the topics discussed are the rules and restrictions regarding no access via vehicles through the neighborhood as well as explicit instructions that need to be relayed to any and all delivery drivers who are accessing the site.
Neighbors are welcome to contact me via my cell phone if they have concerns.
I say this with the thought that if something of concern should come up I should be able to track it down pretty fast.
