Ald. Chris Taliaferro will be hosting community meetings via Zoom on the third Wednesday of the month. Austin residents at last week’s meeting learned about where they can get COVID-19 vaccines in the ward. Temporary clinics at Amundsen Park and Catalyst Circle Rock Charter School will be giving vaccinations to residents through the middle of April.
But 28th Ward Ald. Jason Ervin upset some West Siders when he said at a recent community meeting that it’s up to CPS to determine whether to accept one of two bids that have been submitted for the William King Elementary building. One bid is for single-family homes and the other for “school use.”
