To the Editor:
My name is Robert Wernis and I live on Ridgewood Court. For years I have been complaining about the lack of street sweeping in November in the 4th Ward. We are now in the 5th Ward but are still listed in the 4th Ward for street sweeping. I called Ald. Will Burns’ (4th) office a couple months ago about the lack of cleaning in November, as I have for many years, and they forwarded my call to the sanitation department. A person there called me back and was of absolutely no help. Years ago a sweeping was scheduled for November but was canceled when they realized it was on Thanksgiving and we have never had a November sweeping since then. November is when the leaves fall and sweeping is needed. The 5th Ward 1 block over gets a November sweeping and an October sweeping a day after us. I find this unacceptable. I have e-mailed this letter to the 4th Ward twice and have never had a response.
