    Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle praised Jennifer “Sis” Killen’s appointment as the new superintendent of the Cook County Department of Transportation and Highway at the board’s Thursday meeting.

    The county has only put about 2 percent of the federal money it has received related to the COVID-19 pandemic toward administrative costs, county Chief Financial Officer Ammar Rizki told commissioners during a Thursday board meeting.

    Commissioners peppered county with questions regarding administrative costs that could soak up money from the March 2020 CARES Act before Rizki assured the board that only 2 percent of its CARES money had gone toward administrative line items, well under its 5 percent threshold for that kind of spending.
