....a lot of concerns along the same lines
with our thoughts.
Many of us feel the same way but have no way to let others know. That dam was there for so long, didn't bother anyone. The river was so beautiful, now, it'll be down to a little more than a trickle. I hope they fix the appearance of the dam and the bare shores that are going to stink and breed mosquitoes. Oh well, just keep paying your taxes, the bill should be soon!

Been following this via the Landmark for months. Riverside and its' residents have been informed and involved; the Village of Lyons for some reason turned a blind eye to what was planned and therefore, Lyons residents and businesses have been in the dark. Share your concerns about the final outcome of this, and the problems left unresolved when they Army Corps wraps up their lil' party and goes on their merry way. Maybe we won't have any input on this issue, but we should seriously think hard about coming together as residents of Lyons and take whatever action necessary to ensure that we are kept informed on events and issues that will impact us, like notching the dam, Village movies, and work on Nicor buried lines. Folks who don't like each much come together all the time to achieve positive results, just not in Lyons lately. Needs to change for things here to change.

Can anyone shed any light on the horrific smell
that permeates the air during the night and early morning hours?

It has been going on for some time....it comes thru the house..every room smells of this horrible odor.... It makes me nauseated and wakes me from sleep....no kidding..it is so bad that I become sick to my stomach.

Just wondering if there are others who notice this
horrible smell...winter time, spring time, summer
and fall...the smell creeps into the house....

There has to be someone who knows where it is coming from...thank you for any input !

Two possibilities - Corn Products Corporation and the MWRD sludge pits along I-55.

Thank you....feel sorry for the young children and
babies that have to breathe in this mysterious smell.
I'm on my way out ...but future generations will suffer from these horrible pollutants that have taken over the very air that we breathe.

I live west of Lawndale and there isn't any smell day or night. Are you east of Lawndale, perhaps closer to 47th?

Usually Corn Products is a 'potato cooking' type smell, the sludge pits are a whole different ball game, peeeeeew! I used to live in Cicero near Pershing Road, that's why we moved, the smell was disgusting but then that's been going on for seventy five years if not longer. Perhaps it's the stench of politics in Lyons that you are getting except that goes on day and night, 24/7.

Where did you find it? I just see the pictures changing, including the one that shows the Village violating its own code:

C. No person shall, in any manner, obstruct or prevent free access to any fire hydrant by placing or storing, temporarily or otherwise, any object or materials of any kind within twenty feet (20') of the same.(1965 Code &#167;&nbsp;5-2-13)
