Nearly one year after former Mayor Lori Lightfoot and her allies blocked a hearing on the proposal to ask voters if they want to raise the real estate transfer tax on the sale of properties over $1 million and use the new revenue to curb homelessness, the City Council will vote on the proposal during its meeting Tuesday.
In addition to the so-called Bring Chicago Home resolution on Tuesday’s agenda, alderpeople are also scheduled to vote on an ordinance that was delayed last week that would allow the city to purchase a vacant Jewel store near the intersection of Halsted and 115th streets to use as shelter for migrants.
