    Mayor Lori Lightfoot answers questions after Wednesday’s City Council meeting

    A group of aldermen are calling on Mayor Lori Lightfoot to target the expected $1.9 billion in anticipated federal stimulus money toward the “immediate needs of communities hardest hit by COVID-19 pandemic” instead of using it to pad the Chicago Police Department’s budget, according to a resolution they introduced during Wednesday’s City Council meeting.

    Another alderman introduced an ordinance Wednesday that would permanently cap third-party delivery fees, and another introduced a resolution calling for a hearing to discuss Navy Pier’s “lack of transparency” in minority contracting.
