Update on November 8th Resident Meeting

Staff would like to thank everyone for participating in the meeting last Thursday. Residents informed staff that they were all interested in receiving private quotes from Unique Plumbing to move water service penetrations to the front of their foundations. Unique Plumbing needs to visit each home and inspect the existing penetrations and current configuration of the basement. Unique Plumbing has recommended that in-home visits take place on Friday, December 1st , 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM. Any resident who can not schedule a meeting this day may schedule one for Saturday, December 2nd, 8:00 AM - 1:00 PM. Please inform staff if you require a Saturday meeting. Unique Plumbing plans to have two estimators available and inspections should take 30 minutes. The estimators will split up to cover Rose Avenue and Garden Avenue. Details on which home they will start at will be available in the next few weeks. 

Below are a list of additional items that staff will be following up on for the next meeting. A meeting date has not yet been set but it will occur sometime in December. 

What will staff be working on?

  • Breakdown of private water service costs (restoration, labor, materials, etc.)
  • Building permit fees for interior plumbing work. Can they be waived? 
  • Reduced project cost if each resident moves foundation penetration to the front of their home

If you have any questions on the project or need to discuss scheduling for Unique Plumbing, please contact Casey Biernacki at 708-246-1800 x 276 or at
