    Four months after alderpersons and advocates unveiled a proposal for a city-run pilot program to clear some of Chicago’s sidewalks of snow and ice, the ordinance (O2023-2104) will get an initial committee vote on Friday. 

    Ald. Gilbert Villegas (36) first formally introduced the proposal for the city to “plow the sidewalks” earlier this year under former Mayor Lori Lightfoot, but after seeing delays under the former administration, sponsors decided to delay a vote on the measure until Mayor Brandon Johnson took office.
