Non-Emergency City Services

Chicago 311 Top Requests

With the new CHI 311 mobile app, residents are able to create new service requests; check the status of existing requests and the time it will take to resolve; snap a photo and submit it with a request; map requests to help pinpoint a location; create an account to track service requests and get local, relevant information; provide feedback upon completion of the service request; search and see helpful knowledge articles; and view other service requests in their neighborhood and throughout the city. Residents will benefit from enhanced communication that fits both new and old ways in which residents are able to connect with the City.

Residents who would like to request a city service can download the free CHI 311 mobile app from the Apple Store or Google Play, visit 311.Chicago.gov to begin to use this new and improved channel for available city services, or call 311.

From 40th Ward Alderman Andre Vasquez

The 40th Ward is a rare gem, in my opinion.

It is a beautiful mix of neighborhoods such as Andersonville, Lincoln Square, Edgewater, Arcadia Terrace, and Bowmanville on the north side of town. Equally beautiful is its mix of neighbors – we have folks of every culture, identity, income, and residency status. It is a community comprised of young families and retirees – of all walks of life, really, and we are that much greater a community for it. I ran because I wanted to bring Accessibility, Accountability, and Transparency to our local government while connecting all corners of our ward as one. On April 2nd 2019, the ward elected me as its Alderman. It is an honor and a pleasure to serve!

Please check out our site! In it, we provide solutions to the typical ward requests (block party permits, pothole fixes, ward updates), as well as small business support, legislative updates, and event notices. It is my goal to make your experience with our Aldermanic office a convenient one – so that as a 40th Ward Neighbor, you feel supported, connected, and valued.

Meet our staff, Sign up for our Newsletter, and reach out with any questions/concerns you may have – we are delighted to help!

– Alderman Andre Vasquez
