Another mayoral appointment to the City’s Board of Local Improvements awaits Council consideration today. The Council Committee on Transportation and Public Way will consider Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s proposed appointment of Paul Connolly to the board in charge of approving any public way improvements by private developers.
Last month, the City Council approved a pair of appointments to the five member board:Christopher M. Michalek, a partner at McGuire Woods LLP, and Edward T. McKinnie, Sr., President of the Board of Directors for Black Contractors United. Connolly, a business manager for the Chicago Laborers’ Pension and Welfare Funds, will fill the remaining vacant seat. All board members serve without term limits or compensation.
