    Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s controversial plan to let city attorneys sue gang leaders for their assets is in line for a final vote by the City Council during its meeting on Wednesday, setting the stage for a final public debate over whether the ordinance will help the city wrangle crime or only make matters worse.  

    The council is also set to approve about $4.4 million in police misconduct settlements, finalize a long-delayed appointment to head a key police investigatory office and move to tighten aldermen’s control over special event permits in their own wards.
