The Cook County Board of Commissioners gave final approval Thursday to a measure that strengthens access to translated election materials for limited-English proficient populations, a measure to mitigate tax increases for some property owners that have installed solar energy infrastructure and a contract increase for a firm providing consulting to the county on federal pandemic relief funds.
Commissioners also introduced measures calling on the federal government to strengthen border security to stem the flow of fentanyl into the U.S.; a measure calling for the county to create a program to promote healthy eating and prioritize equity in food security; and a measure that calls for a hearing on violence and systemic barriers affecting the county’s transgender residents.
