A measure aimed at protecting workers who take time off to pursue vaccinations and a tougher set of rules for “scofflaw” building owners were among dozens of new ordinances and resolutions introduced to the City Council on Wednesday.
The measures join Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s long-awaited proposal (O2021-1226) to revamp the city’s Affordable Requirements Ordinance by cranking up requirements for many developers while offering them more ways to satisfy city affordable housing rules.
