Public Safety and Health Issue

Swanette Triem has workers on her property without a permit displayed again. Those who have been following the Swanette Triem/North Shore School story on Rogers Park in 1,000 Words may remember when Swanette Triem was inspected by the IEPA during the illegal and unsafe demolition of the North Shore School.


The facts:

Swanette Triem continuosly creates public safety and health hazards at her 1217 W. Chase Avenue Chicago, IL. 60626 property. Some of these issues are demolition and construction without a permit displayed, unsecure dangerous and contaminated property, Spreading of Asbestos and other poisons in our air and water.

Swanette Triem is a supporter of Alderman Joe Moore and contributed financially to the alderman before the demolition of the North Shore School.


An observation:

Swanette Triem must believe that her bank account trumps the public safety and health of our community.










From an earlier post concerning Swanette Triem's North Shore School demolition on the same property:

These photos are of the IEPA (Illinois Evironmental Protection Agency), inspecting the North Shore School demolition site for contaminants that could poison residents of Rogers Park.

The demolition was ordered to stop, but Swanette Triem, had it continued over the evenings and weekends when the IEPA would not be watching. this poisoned the air of thousands of nearby residents with Asbestos and other hazardous substances. Alderman Joe Moore approved the rezoning, then demolition after accepting campaign contributions. You can read more about this here: http://rp1000.blogspot.com/2010/02/its-time-to-revisit.html.
