Chicago Speed Camera Hearing Postponed
There was supposed to be a hearing on Chicago’s proposed speed camera law at the next meeting of the City Council Committee on Pedestrian and Traffic Safety on Monday.
Despite the meeting not appearing on the City Clerk’s website, and Committee Chair Margaret Laurino’s (39th) staff telling this writer multiple times no meeting had been scheduled, the Chicago Tribune is reporting a meeting was scheduled and then postponed to allow committee members to gauge constituent sentiment on the issue.
It sounds like aldermen are hearing from constituents and perhaps it’s not very positive. And just maybe, aldermen don’t want to go through another parking meter lease deal where city council members are still hearing from angry constituents nearly four years after the fact.
Here’s the Tribune’s full story, “Speed-camera hearing stalled.”
