The same day City Council shot down Ald. Anthony Beale’s (9) proposal to raise the speeding threshold for drivers to be issued tickets by speed cameras, Ald. Brendan Reilly (42) introduced a proposal to lobby Springfield to allow Chicago to put the speed camera revenue toward pension payments.
Reilly’s proposal came amid a flurry of newly introduced legislation before the City Council’s August break. Other proposed measures would create a program to publicly fund elections, establish a pilot program that would allow robots to deliver food and to examine a potential tax on vacant properties. A package of proposed measures aimed at improving police officer mental health was also introduced during the July council meeting.
