Street parking only. Genie is correct people pay permit fees to park in the city lot.

Michele, IF only those .20 tickets allowed people to park in the city lot.
My friend ended up parking 2 blocks north on Custer. (3 blocks from my house) because we had no local parking spots.
I'm wishing there was a local public paid parking lot or that people who paid for a spot in the city lots would actually utilize their spot & free up spots for residents/visitors.
THAT is my American Dream for today.
Have a great, Happy & Safe Fourth!

Candace - I also got caught by the schedule change. I did my usual walk to South Boulevard, only to find it locked up tight. I was able to hail a cab to take me to the Howard station. No purple Line Express, only Red Line. I still made it to work on time, but considerably less early than I prefer.

Do the visitor guest passes allow you to park in reserved spaces in the city lot? I thought they were just for out-of-towners who need street parking?

Uber is an absolute godsend. But expensive for a young person, who shouldn't have to budget for Uber every Sunday shift. Since minimum wage in Chicago has now been raised to $10.00 an hour, it will be interesting to see if any Evanston merchants will follow suit. Imagine getting $10 an hour to work at Urban Outfitters in Chicago, but only $8.25 in Evanston? Starbucks in Chicago $10 an hour, but only $8.50 in Evanston?

I didn't know that an employer in Illinois can pay a person below minimum wage for the first 90 days.

Hey all in the 8th Ward.

To huge surprise in our household, the CTA bus routes decided to "observe" the July 4th holiday on Friday, July 3. My daughter, and several other people she was waiting with at the bus stops, was essentially stranded twice trying to get home and back from her job at Central and Crawford. The worst was, the CTA bus tracker showed the bus on the route as if it was there, but it was a ghost bus.

Since when do the CTA buses observe the holiday on the day before the holiday, as if no one was working on a Friday?? And, it turns out that today, July 4th, according to this page, the same bus will be running it's normal Saturday schedule. This is nuts.

My daughter is really enjoying her new job at the Starbucks on Center and Crawford, but this is one those corners of Evanston very poorly served by public transportation. The 201 bus is it, and on Sunday's there's nothing, just absolutely nothing.

You can purchase guest passes for I believe $.20 apiece at the Civic Center.

Is there any cause for concern about city parking Lot 18 at Clyde/Brummel ?
There are 6 stickered cars (over 10% of the lot) parking on Clyde Ave tonight.
I know parking is tight to begin with, but visitors can't use the empty spaces left behind in the city lot.
Any suggestions for visitors needing to park?

Betsy and Judith, I explained your situation once again and public works completely understands and you will not be charged.

I'd love to catch one of these fly dumpers someday.

Good morning, Ann,

I own the three flat at 825 Case Street. Some (not one of my tenants) dumped couch sections behind my building. I reported this to the City, and they removed them. but now they say they will charge me for a pick up. I do not think that I should be charged for this, as someone else dumped their trash on my property. Can you help get these charges removed?
thank you

Is the property owner responsible for paying for a special pickup after an incidence of fly-dumping?

A little over a week ago, we had to have a car towed that was illegally parked behind 825 Case St, blocking the garages. The next day, someone dumped two couch sections there, making me think it was retaliatory. I checked with the other tenants and none of us put the furniture there. I told my landlady that she needed to request a special pick up and to tell 311 that it was fly dumping. She got an email today saying that it would be picked up on Friday July 3rd and that she would be charged at least $25. The reference # is Trash - Special Pickup #1043671. Ann - can you help her?
