Emanuel backpedals on library cuts

Chicago Tribune – “Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Friday said he’ll compromise on vehicle sticker fee increases, water bills for nonprofits and library hour cuts as he tries to collect enough votes to pass his first budget. The changes amount to about $10 million in a proposed spending plan that totals $6.3 billion. That allowed the mayor to declare that his overall aim of scaling back city spending and changing the way city business is done would remain intact despite the concessions to aldermen who had raised concerns.”
