Remap Some Reductions
The Fire Department is rumored to be closing more than a couple of fire stations starting next year.
And the City Council?
- Mayor Rahm Emanuel says he thinks aldermen will stay “laser-focused” on reaching agreement on a remap plan to keep taxpayers from financing an expensive court fight.
As WBBM Newsradio [...] reports, Mayor Emanuel says he is optimistic aldermen will agree – and the remap issue won’t have to be decided in court.
Two-hundred-thousand people left the city last decade, but we aren't seeing any sort of reduction in aldercreatures. 311 has lightened the actual need for many of the aldercreatures' ward functions, but Chicago maintains what we believe is the largest City Council in existence.
