From the May Newsletter:
Mr. Duggan and several neighbors attended the April 25 hearing. In classic Chicago politics, they were informed that the issue had been postponed because the owner’s lawyer, Sara Barnes, was on vacation in Miami. Mr. Duggan objected to the postponement, noting that objecting neighbors had rearranged their schedules and otherwise been inconvenienced by this hearing. Despite the objection, the chairperson granted the rescheduling of the issue to May 16, 2PM in City Council chambers.
