The full Chicago City Council is meeting Wednesday for the first time since July.
One of their first orders of business was to honor the city's little league heroes.
Aldermen gave a standing ovation to the Jackie Robinson West Little League team and praised their hard work.
Aldermen also considered a proposal to put the brakes on real estate developers and their efforts to do away with SRO's, or single-room-occupancy buildings. "If someone can get a permit to change them from SRO's to condos or apartments overnight, without any input from the community or alderman - we'd like more time to work through those with community organizations to see what they'd like to see done," said 32nd Ward Alderman Scott Waguespack.
Alderman Anthony Beale wants to raise the speed limit on one road in the 9th ward, where speed cameras have caused the issuance of 40,000 tickets. "There are no accidents, no people around, no parks, no schools and so I just figured we needed to change the speed limit and alleviate most of those tickets," said Beale.
Several aldermen say speed cameras are at the top of the list of complaints they receive from constituents.
