Ald. Matt Martin (47) wrote in his latest newsletter, “In recent months, many of you have contacted my office urging that the City find ways to expand sweeping services throughout the year. I recently summarized and sent these requests to the Inspector General’s Office, which is auditing Chicago’s sweeping program later this year. I’m hopeful that the audit, once completed, will identify concrete actions for improving sweeping that my colleagues and I can act on quickly.
