My 49th Ward Service Office will be CLOSED for the holidays from Friday, December 23rd, at 2 p.m. to Tuesday, January 3rd, at 9 a.m.
Even though the Ward Service Office will be closed, my ward superintendent, Greg Wagner, and his crew will provide 49th Ward residents with garbage pick-up and other routine city services Tuesday, December 27th, through Friday, December 30th. Snow removal and other emergency services always will be provided regardless of the holidays.
For non-emergency city service requests during the holiday week, e-mail or call my office and leave a message (e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org; phone: 773-338-5796). We will return your e-mail or telephone message promptly on Tuesday, January 3rd, and address your issue then. If you have a city service request that requires immediate attention, please call 311. Of course, if you have a police, fire, or medical emergency, you should always call 911.
The past year has been a challenging time for our city and our nation, but we have persevered. As we celebrate the holidays, let’s take a moment to count our blessings. We live in one of the most dynamic and exciting neighborhoods in the country, a community that continues to undergo positive change. I am both honored and humbled by the overwhelming vote of confidence I received in last February’s aldermanic election and look forward to working with you to make 2012 the best year yet for the 49th Ward!
I hope that the year ahead is filled with hope, health and happiness for you and your family.
On behalf of myself, my family and my tireless and dedicated staff–Betsy Vandercook, Michael Land, Wayne Frazier, Ann Hinterman, Cecilia Salinas and Adriana Moreno Nevarez–I wish you a blessed holiday season and a wonderful and prosperous New Year!
