There are two water main projects that will be starting next month and cause disruption to residents and businesses over a months long period as crews replace century old pipes. One on Armitage Ave that we will be sending out details on soon, but will be running from the Kennedy Highway to Kedzie Ave. The second project has details below and will run along Lincoln Ave. from Southport to Belmont. Read below for details.
As part of required reforms for the police department by the consent decree and through changes requested by the city council and members of the public, a new policy on search warrants is being proposed. The new policy has been posted on CPD’s website and will be available for public review for 15 days. More details on the changes are listed below.
The Mikva Challenge is opening up for students applications at this time, so check out the Mikva Challenge for a great opportunity for kids 17-20 years old.
