The [Wednesday] Papers

"Mayor Rahm Emanuel's administration will shut down its overnight emergency services shift for the homeless and lay off 24 employees in the city's Department of Family and Support Services," the Chicago News Cooperative reports.

The city lost some state funding and just doesn't have the money itself to keep its services intact.

Or does it?

*

"Chief Financial Officer Lois Scott and Budget Director Alexandra Holt each are making $169,992 a year, compared to $164,952 for former CFO Gene Saffold and $163,656 for Daley's last budget director, Eugene Munin," CNC reports.

"At an annual salary of $169,500, new Transportation Commissioner Gabriel Klein is paid almost $13,000 more than the last department head, Bobby Ware.

"Matt Hynes, the Emanuel campaign operative who now leads the mayor's lobbying efforts in Springfield and at the City Council, will receive a salary of $168,996 a year, about $10,000 more than Daley intergovernmental affairs director Joan Coogan."

And so on.

Too Perfect
"A middle-class south suburb whose mayor has been attacked for high spending is also home to a highly paid City Council with big expense accounts to pay for everything from margaritas to wedding gifts, the Tribune has found.

"Country Club Hills' 10 aldermen represent just 16,500 people, but they are paid roughly $31,000 a year and given an unusual $9,000-a-year expense account.

"The Tribune found those individual funds are essentially used as walking-around money. They have paid for hundreds of meals - including an outing with an intern to Hooters, an upscale Christmas Eve dinner and two meals to discuss 'high taxes.'"
