With the weather predicted to be warm this week, it may be hard to believe that autumn soon will be upon us. But it’s true and it’s time again for the 49th Ward Service Office to take to the streets with my “Satellite Service Office.” My staff and I will be out in the neighborhood throughout the autumn to meet you, take city service requests and assist you with any other matters of concern.
If you are reporting a city service need, very specific information is helpful. If it’s a burned out street light or a pothole, for example, please provide a specific address where it’s located. If it’s an aba
ndoned vehicle, we can remove it more quickly if you have the license plate number, color, make and model and even the VIN. The exact address where the car is parked and notes on any damage to the vehicle are also important.
At many of the locations (those not outside a cafe or food store), I’ll be offering complimentary coffee and donuts. So please stop by and say hello on any of the following dates and times:
