OTL: Episode #509- Chicago Monumental, The Chicago property tax makes some IL politicians richer, The North Branch Trail grows
Mike Stephen talks with:
- local photographer Larry Broutman about Chicago Monumental, his new coffee table book tribute to the city’s monuments;
- Illinois Policy Institute writer Austin Berg about the political twists and turns in Chicago’s property-tax hike; and
- Forest Preserve District of Cook County general superintendent Arnold Randall about nature, cycling, wildlife, and the North Branch Trail System extension.
Meanwhile, we spread the word that Chicago street festivals are technically free!
This week’s local music is provided music provided by The Black Oil Brothers.
OTL host Mike Stephen may or may not have paid the donation at the gate to enter the Taste of Randolph festival back in 2008.
