Emanuel to use phone survey for input on budget gap
Augsut 19, 2011 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- Mayor Rahm Emanuel is using a telephone survey of Chicago voters for opinions on how to close a $636 million budget gap.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Emanuel's survey will ask opinions on closing libraries, a 15-percent cut to police, fire, and emergency management, and a $2.5-million cut to programs for seniors.
The survey also asks whether voters support Emanuel's school board property tax increase. No city tax dollars are used in the polling.
