    Aldermen to consider proposal to increase fines for industrial air polluters 

    Aldermen are scheduled Thursday to consider a proposal from Mayor Lori Lightfoot to increase fines for large industrial air polluters and to hold a hearing on the environmental and health impacts that designated industrial districts have on neighborhoods. 

    Lightfoot’s proposal (O2020-6200) would pave the way for the Department of Public Health to enforce higher fines on “industrial facilities and demolition contractors that create dust and risk the health and quality-of-life of residents.”
