Chicago committee will oversee privatization of Midway Airport

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Mayor Emanuel announced the formation of a seven-member committee Friday, charged with overseeing the privatization of Midway Airport.

The committee will be composed of two urban planning specialists, two key aldermen, a labor leader, one former alderman and a parking executive who donated to Emanuel's election campaign and is a close friend of President Barack Obama.

Their role is to oversee the process of leasing the airport. They'll be given the authority to hire an independent auditor, to make sure it goes better than the parking meter deal.
