Fines to be hiked for industrial air polluters, but alderman urges more ‘holistic’ work with community organizations
Aldermen on Thursday approved a proposal from Mayor Lori Lightfoot to hike fines for large industrial polluters, but some aldermen in wards that have been affected by air pollution said more needs to be done, especially with community organizations, to inhibit bad actors.
Members of the City Council Committee on Environmental Protection and Energy unanimously approved the ordinance (O2020-6200) during its Thursday meeting.
