Smokey rubber, No. Band-Aid yes but just slightly.
Saw the water analysis of my water district. didn't see chloramine.
They often don't specify. Easiest way to tell is if both "free chlorine" and "total chlorine" are listed (this is how my water report does it). Total chlorine minus free chlorine equals chloramine. And some water sources just list "chlorine" including both chlorine and chloramine. Many water sources (or is it all? Every source I've looked at does this) will use one some parts of the year, and the other at other parts of the year.

If nothing else, get your water company on the phone and they will be able to answer. It's a pretty common question that a lot of folks besides brewers want to know about.

I have just let my water sit out in jugs for 48 hours. Does this work to remove chlorine? I have been told that the chlorine will evaporate as it is a gas. Is this even true?

I was having the same band-aid flavor also. I was using tap water, so I tried campden tablets, that helped but the band-aid flavor was still there. Then I bought a 3 stage in line filter and still used campden tablets, again it helped but flavor was still there. Then I sent a sample of straight tap water and a sample of the filtered water to Ward Labs for testing, my water even after filtering was horrible for brewing.

Now I use 100% RO water for my brews, and the problem is solved.
When I brew with extracts I don't add any water treatments. When I do an AG brew I will use Brunwater to calculate the water profile treatments.

I run through the garden hose but I let it run for a few minutes first to clear the water that was setting in it. I also run at a pretty slow flow rate and I never add any of the filtered water post boil. It's only for mash and sparge.
