Progress Illinois writes, "Chicago aldermen approved a long-proposed plan to set up an independent budget office tasked with analyzing financial matters under consideration by the city council.
Chicago is the fourth major U.S. city to adopt such an office, which was originally spearheaded in the council by Ald. Ameya Pawar (47th) and co-sponsors Alds. Michele Smith (43rd) and Pat Dowell (3rd). The office, which will employ six staffers, is set to receive $485,000 in funding a year." More here.
Good luck to all financial wizards who apply!
