City Council to vote on Trump street sign ban

View In Browser


 

The Chicago City Council meets Tuesday, but with the election coming up next week and the Cubs playing a do-or-die World Series game, the agenda is sparse.

Nevertheless, some of the issues are topical. Aldermen — a group of Democrats save for one — are expected to vote to remove the remaining honorary “Trump Plaza” sign outside the GOP presidential nominee’s eponymous Near North tower on Wabash Avenue in retaliation for his comments on Chicago violence and immigration in general. The other sign has been stolen.

Aldermen also are expected to vote to amend the rules for peddlers outside Wrigley Field in a way that shores up the sale of non-team-authorized goods on the sidewalks flanking the ballpark. That move is in response to a lawsuit by the longtime seller of “Chicago Baseball” magazine, who has accused the city of violating his First Amendment rights to free speech. (Hal Dardick)
