City Council Recap, 2-12-08
The budget was passed. The Mayor had to break the tie. Alderperson 1, 2, 6 and 7 voted against the budget.
As f March 12, 2008, Dennis O'Halloran will be the new Fire Chief.
Since our City Attorney resigned, the Mayor appointed Odelson and Sterk to be the new City Attorneys. Five people voted for the appointment. Alderperson one voted present. Six and eight voted against.
A new street sweeper was approved for purchase. Also, two new plows(not trucks) were approved for purchase.
And, the superblock redevelopment agreement was approved by a unanimous vote. So, hopefully, the corner of Oak Park and Cermak will see some new happenings soon.
Out of the 38 items submitted, the above is the most significant.
