Representative's Corner
Dear Community Members,
In my continuing effort to keep you informed regarding developments affecting the residents of the 34th District, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your continued support.
My mission as your State Representative is to improve the quality of life for the communities we serve. We continue to work collectively with the communities making up the 34th District in order to strengthen community and governmental relations as we continue to put our families and communities first.
The work I am doing in Springfield seeks to improve the quality of our schools, strengthening the middle class by creating good jobs, bringing fiscal discipline to Springfield, and passing common sense public safety initiatives to make our streets safer.
Again, thank you for entrusting me with this great responsibility, and supporting the work that we do here in the 34th District.
Warmest regards,
State Representative Elgie R. Sims, Jr.
8658 South Cottage Grove
Suite 404B
Chicago, IL 60619

Chicago's Winter Overnight Parking Ban Is In Effect
Chicago's winter overnight parking ban is in effect. The ban affects parking on 107 miles of arterial streets and is enforced from 3 a.m. to 7 a.m. until March 31, 2017.

Violators face a minimum $150 towing fee, $60 ticket and a storage fee of $20 per-day, the city said. The vehicles will be towed to Pound 2 at 10301 S. Doty Ave. and Pound 6 at 701 N. Sacremento.
"During a snow storm it is critical that crews are able to plow and salt Chicago's main streets. This helps us restore the city to normal as quickly as possible, and ensures that buses can access routes to take passengers to work, school and along their daily routines," said Commissioner Charles L. Williams in a press release. "Residents can assist us in this effort by checking signs and following posted restrictions
