Chicago passes police reform bill

I was on CBS News last night to discuss Chicago City Council enacting the nation's strongest civilian oversight ordinance. I'm proud to have been a chief sponsor of this legislation, and I'm proud of the grassroots coalition that got us here.

There's much more to be done to end unconstitutional and racist policing - but we now continue that work on the firm foundation of the Empowering Communities for Public Safety ordinance.

Watch: https://www.cbsnews.com/video/chicago-passes-police-reform-bill-analysis-carlos-ramirez-rosa/

Chicago has passed police reform legislation that will allow civilians to have oversight of the city's police department. Alderman Carlos Ramirez-Rosa of Chicago's 35th ward voted in support of the bill. He joins CBSN's Lana Zak with more.

06/28/2021

Our office works alongside our residents and the Chicago Department of Water Management to identify residential sewers that need sewer inspection and/or cleaning to mitigate flooding. If there is a drain near you that you believe needs an inspection, please do not hesitate to call our ward office at (773) 887-3772. We also invite residents to do their part and utilize some of the helpful tips below to assist with stormwater management.

Spring / Summer Stormwater Management Tips:
- Don’t litter or dump anything in storm drains. Storm drains are for rain only.
- Avoid running a dishwasher or washing machine during storms.
- Use a commercial car wash or wash your car over grass or gravel instead of on a driveway or in the street.
- Use lawn fertilizers sparingly, follow product instructions, and sweep driveways and sidewalks after application.
- Do not dump fats/oils/greases in private drains.
- Install rain gardens, green landscaping, or trees in your yard to help retain rainwater.
- Resurface driveways, parking pads, or patios with permeable pavement.
- Disconnect your downspout from the sewer system. See DWM’s website for a guide on downspout disconnection.
