Aldermen Showing New Streak of Independence?

A group of aldermen have proposed an ordinance that would give the city’s inspector general jurisdiction over the City Council as well. This is a move away from the Council having their own IG. The ordinance was scheduled for a vote, but that got bumped to next month’s meeting at the will of the Council’s most powerful aldermen, Alderman Ed Burke and Alderman Carrie Austin. We talk with 47th Ward alderman Ameya Pewar about the ordinance he’s co-sponsoring, and we check in with politics reporter Lauren Chooljian about what seems like a new push for independence by aldermen.
