City Council Update 1/30/2017

January 30, 2017
  • At the January 25th meeting of the City Council, Anna Valencia was sworn in as the new City Clerk of Chicago. Anna replaces the outgoing Susana Mendoza, who was elected Illinois Comptroller. The City Clerk's office provides a number of services including issuing city vehicle stickers and residential parking permits. Alderman Laurino looks forward to working with Clerk Valencia and wishes both her and Comptroller Mendoza congratulations and the best of luck in their new endeavors.
  • The City Council also voted in favor of the issuance of federal multi-family bonds on behalf Mayfair Commons at Lawrence and Elston. Alderman Laurino supported this measure because Mayfair Commons has provided affordable housing for low income seniors in the 39th Ward since 1999, and the issuance of these bonds will allow much-needed maintenance and improvements to the property and will preserve the affordability of this project for years to come.
