The spending portions of Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s proposed 2023 budget gained key committee support on Wednesday, but some of the votes were close, potentially signaling a tight vote when the full City Council votes on the budget on Monday.
The City Council Committee on Budget and Government Operations met Wednesday to give initial approval to the annual appropriation ordinance (O2022-3025) which sets spending for the next year, and the 2023 management ordinance (O2022-3580). And aldermen continued pressing city officials to reestablish the Department of Environment.
