Chicago Political mess becomes your garbage problem

Chicago residents may soon be paying more for garbage to help pay for the city's pension mess.

The city faces a $600 million pension payment this year to stabilize the pensions being paid to police and firefighters.

Therefore, the city council is considering a monthly fee for garbage collection, just like homeowners in the suburbs. The fee could run anywhere from $10 to $20 a month.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel has rejected the idea. He is pushing a $250 million property tax increase instead.
