Mayor Eases Cuts to Chicago Public Library Funding But 184 Jobs Still Lost

From a Chicago Sun-Times Article:

The mayor’s decision to restore $1 million he cut from graffiti removal and vacant lot cleaning and $3.3 million cut from Chicago Public Libraries did please aldermen, however. Instead of laying off 284 employees, libraries would fire 184; and Monday and Friday morning closings would not apply during the 19 weeks when school is out.
