A more than year-long push to ease back the city’s ticketing policy for drivers who speed near some schools and parks is scheduled to come to a head during Wednesday’s 10 a.m. City Council meeting as Mayor Lori Lightfoot has already signaled she would veto the measure if it is approved by City Council.
The City Council is also set to give its stamp to dozens of other items that passed out of committee in the past month, including Lightfoot’s proposed “Connected Communities Ordinance” designed to lay the groundwork for more housing construction near transit.
