I am deeply honored by the opportunity to represent the 1st Ward in the Chicago City Council.

I pledge to serve my constituents with honesty and integrity. I will be a strong and independent advocate for the people of the 1st Ward in the Chicago City Council and no one else.

I encourage you to share your ideas and suggestions on how I may serve you better.

On Wednesday, December 1, 2010, at 3 a.m., Chicago's Overnight Winter Parking Ban resumes on 107 miles of our most critical arterial streets.

It will be in effect from 3 a.m. until 7 a.m. every night until April 1, 2011, regardless of snow.

Large parts of major streets in the 1st Ward, including Division Street and Milwaukee Avenue, will be affected by this ban.

If you're concerned about this ban contact my office and my staff can help you figure out where to park. Also, you can purchase Residential Guest Passes at my office.

The other ban, which one needs to pay attention to, is the 2 Inch Snow parking restriction.                                    

This ban affects 500 miles of city streets and large portions of 1st Ward arterial streets.

These parking restrictions are part of Chicago's Snow Route System, which was created in response to massive snow storms, including "the Great Blizzard" of 1967, which halted traffic citywide.

The restrictions are there to keep our streets and our people safe during heavy snow.

Please pay attention to the restrictions and stay safe.



I am launching a Street Sweeping Text Alert System. This text notification system will have two positive effects. The number of tickets issued should be considerably reduced, and 1st Ward streets will be more thoroughly cleaned.

The 1st Ward had previously used an e-mail alert system but I feel that text messaging will be a far more effective way to alert residents.

Once residents sign up they will receive two text messages, one the night before and one the morning of, to remind them to move their vehicle and avoid a $50 ticket.
A big piece of my job as Alderman is to utilize technology that makes residents lives easier and this program combines convenience with savings.

I am funding this program so it will be free for 1st Ward residents.
To sign up for these notifications follow this link and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact my office.

Street Sweeping Season Begins April 1st
Street Sweeping season begins; 4.1.2010 and runs, weather permitting, through 11.30.2010. It is important that residents move their cars on the day of their scheduled sweep to help keep the community clean.

The 1st ward is divided into 9 sweeping zones. Zones 1 through 8 have a permanent schedule. Zone 9 will be swept on Mondays and notification will be provided by temporary signs, hung at least 24 hours in advance. Click here for more information.


Tuesday Ward Night


Starting April 13, 2010, the weekly Ward Night extended office hours will be taking place on Tuesday evenings from 5:00 p.m. through 8 p.m. This change will create more opportunities for 1st Ward constituents to meet Alderman Moreno.
