Political Discussion / Re: D100 public hearing-FY14 budget

There were a lot of damages done due to burst pipes and antiquated HVAC. I'm not surprised at all. I saw the damage to 2 of the rooms at Hiawatha and it was awful.

I suppose if other school districts have failing infrastructure and low school funding- I'm sure they're needing emergency repairs too.
I agree.  My furnace needed a new blower motor and gas valve this winter to get through the nasty weather and it is older.  I still wonder why the school district waited until the boilers were in such bad shape to put forth a referendum and why they didn't do anything sooner considering the damage it looks they are now faced with.  It seems to be extremely poor planning on their part.

General Discussion / Latex paint - Free to good home
« Last post by sheldar on July 23, 2014, 02:38:48 PM »

Anyone interested in over 20 gallons of unused latex paint? Unfortunately, Habitat for Humanity in Chicago cannot take it at this time since they've closed up their Halstead St. location, and have not yet taken possession of their new warehouse on the north side. It will be a few weeks before they can take donations, and I really need to get rid of it soon.

Most of the paint is flat, with a few semi-gloss, both interior and exterior. Colors are white, beiges and greens. There are two 5-gallon containers of white. The rest are 1-gallon cans. Most have not been opened, but a few have had a little taken out. Act now, and as a bonus, I will throw in a 1-gallon can of gray Rust-Oleum! ;)

I'd really like to find one person/organization who can take it all off my hands and put it to good use. If you know of a place that can take it all now, please let me know. Or if you are interested in taking it, please send me a message here.

Thanks!

What about a glass block window to be installed in a bathroom with a fan vent for a bathroom on the main floor that does not have any fan?

Does anyone know a good place to get a replace ment side door for the garage (not main overhead door).  I am looking for something wood or steel with a push button lock.  I don't need a Cadillac just something sturdy and serviceable.  Thanks.
