City battle over the closing of Meigs field
June 26, 2006 (WLS) -- The city of Chicago has run up a huge legal bill in the fight over the closing of Meigs field.
Crain's Chicago Business says the city has spent more $200,000 dollars to fight a $33,000 dollar fine imposed by the FAA.
The fine was imposed because the city did not provide 30 days notice before closing the airport.
The city says paying the fine could erode it's defense in other legal battles over Meigs.
