Hi. I thought it would be great for my neighbors to see this. I have reached out to your office starting in September about the barricades in the middle of my street (the 1700 block of Bissell), covering a hole from a fallen sewer. After about a month of reaching out to your office via phone and your website, with NO RESPONSE, I finally called and got through to Sheila in your office. We have been in conversation now for 4 months and there HAS BEEN NO ACTION. NO REPAIRS. She continues to tell me she is on it, but still... no results. Isn't that your job? To help take care of our neighborhood and make sure it is safe and not in a state of ill-repair? My taxes continue to rise and I have barricades in the middle of my street for 4 MONTHS? This is pathetic. Your constituents should know how little you care about our neighborhood. READ MORE

However, to make up for these discrepancies in garbage and recycle pick up, Streets and Sanitation will have extended hours to make up for missed service.

This sent Thursday afternoon to Lincoln Park High School families: Dear LPHS Families, Yesterday, we sent out a communication to parents regarding a potential threat that was found written on a wall in the boy's washroom. As a follow-up, we want to reiterate that we take all potential threats very seriously. We immediately reported the threat to CPS Safety and Security and Chicago Police Department, and a thorough investigation is underway. Some speculation has surfaced that this graffiti might be a copycat act following similar graffiti found in a different school earlier this month. That is not confirmed at this time, and we are proceeding with our full, thorough investigation to ensure the safety of everyone. This morning, we had extra support from CPS and CPD to monitor school grounds. We screened each individual student as they entered the building, and we will be screening all guests. We understand that the process was very slow this morning and are working with CPS Safety and Security to streamline the process for tomorrow with extra personnel and equipment. The threat on the bathroom wall referenced a specific date, December 14, which is tomorrow (Friday). In the event that the investigation is not closed out today, we will further increase the level of security and police presence at our school tomorrow. The extra precautions from today will continue, including full screening of all students and guests, plus reinforcing our standard protocols of ensuring that all entrants only use the main entrance doors. We know that this matter is top of mind and understand that some of you are frustrated over not having specific details related to the investigation. At this time, we are balancing the importance of keeping you informed with the need to maintain the integrity of the investigation. We are committed to providing you with timely information and will provide updates as soon as they become available. Our counselors, school social worker, school psychologist, restorative justice coordinator, and our partners from Depaul Community Health Services are available to speak with students who would like to discuss their feelings about this incident. Lastly, the Local School Council Meeting is tonight at 6 p.m. The District's Chief Officer of Safety and Security will be in attendance to discuss this matter and answer questions, and we encourage you to attend. Please do not hesitate to contact the school with any questions or concerns. Sincerely, M Boraz

Officials investigate threat at Lincoln Park High School

CPS issued the following statement to parents today: "Dear LPHS Parents, Students, and Staff, Earlier today, we were made aware of a potential threat to our school. We take all threats very seriously, and we immediately contacted the Chicago Police Department and CPS Office of Safety and Security. Their investigation is underway. While the investigation is ongoing, we are taking the following precautions to ensure student safety: · We will use our metal detector and X-ray machines to scan all students and their personal items such as book bags. · CPS and the Chicago Police Department will provide additional security in and around the building Safety is a collective responsibility. Students are encouraged to immediately say something to school personnel when they see something that is not appropriate. Please don't hesitate to contact the school if you have any questions. Thank you very much for your support. Sincerely, Principal Michael Boraz" https://chicago.suntimes.com/news/officials-investigate-threat-at-lincoln-park-high-school/ READ MORE

Federal charges planned for Lincoln Park "porch pirate"

Thanks to cooperative neighbors, federal charges are pending against an alleged package thief who was snared in “Operation Porch Pirate,” a joint investigation involving Chicago police and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service. Property belonging to residents of Lincoln Park and Old Town were found in Myers' car along with a dummy package that had been planted on an Old Town porch as part of the investigation. James Myers, 24, was arrested after police and postal inspectors tracked him down using GPS device that was located inside the bait package. http://www.cwbchicago.com/2018/11/federal-charges-planned-for-lincoln.html READ MORE
