Monday morning, 42nd Ward Alderman Brendan Reilly began receiving strange emails asking him what he knew about the city extending the hours for parking meters in River North.

That’s how Reilly found out about Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s proposal to make drivers parking in the 42nd Ward feed the meter until midnight–an additional three hours from the current 9 PM.

The Mayor’s office didn’t give Reilly any warning according to DNA Info Chicago.
