Public Meeting with Dept. Water Management: Update for Bell/Ainslie/Leavitt/Argyle Project

Alderman Vasquez has requested that Department of Water Management staff and their contractors be present in the 40th Ward to address delays and disruptions in water main Project #1601091, located roughly in the area bounded by Bell/Argyle/Leavitt/Ainslie.

Conflicting updates, missed deadlines, and prolonged work stoppages have seriously affected quality of life in the area. Ald. Vasquez has asked that DWM and their contractors be prepared to address:

1) The detailed nature and cause of the project delays.

2) Accountability steps taken or available with work crews and contractors.

3) A clear and realistic timeline to project completion, including street restoration.

4) A direct DWM contact for worksite issues and other constituent concerns for the duration of the project.

The meeting will be held in the 6th floor Skyline Room at DANK Haus (elevator accessible) at 4740 N. Western Ave.
