From Bad To Worse

Per my request, this letter was sent to me to foward on to our Alderman about the condition of our Porches by our vendor The Porch People:

Re: Imminently hazardous Porch conditions

Dear Ms. XXXXXX, and members of the Board:

During our recent return to the building in preparation for the temporary stabilization of the porches, our Senior Field Superintendent accompanied by our Master Carpenter determined that the association’s three (3) porches are extremely dangerous, should not be used, and may not survive this upcoming winter.

Given the above, we will plead with the City of Chicago Department of Permits (DCAP) to consider “fast-tracking” this Permit Application. We can not, however, guarantee that they will be sympathetic, given the volume of applications they process. At the same time, we urge you to perhaps contact your Alderman for assistance.

If you have not done so already, we advise that the Board post notices that strongly suggest the porches be used only as an Emergency Exit.

I will advise you of our permit application intake take, as soon as it is assigned to us by DCAP.

Who, in God's name, is taking me out for drinkies? I hope those permits come in soon.
