Chicago’s Inspector General is out with his latest list of options that could help the city reduce its nearly $300 million budget shortfall.
The agency that oversees ethics issues for City Hall is reportedly falling down on the job.
The Chicago Inspector General’s office says scheduling errors involving the crews that immobilize vehicles with the Denver boot have cost the city $160,000 per year.
City Inspector General Joe Ferguson said Tuesday that former Mayor Richard M. Daley’s administration forced several firms that received city development subsidies to direct a portion of their own funds to charities, including one run by the ex-mayor’s wife, Maggie.
Chicago Inspector General Joe Ferguson says he expects some of the dozens of budget options he outlined in a new report will indeed be embraced by the mayor and City Council this fall.
With the mayor and City Council preparing to begin the annual budget process next month, city Inspector General Joe Ferguson has suggested a host of revenue-generating and cost-saving ideas, including a city income tax and toll booths on Lake Shore Drive.
Chicago Inspector General Joe Ferguson says 54 firefighters assigned to the Fire Department’s Fire Prevention Bureau should be terminated.
Chicago taxpayers are wasting $18 million a year on 200 motor truck drivers who shuttle city crews to work sites.
The city’s Budget director is taking issue with an Inspector General’s report accusing the Daley Administration of overstating how much it is saving through employees’ unpaid furlough days.
