The Chicago City Council was meeting Wednesday and is expected to approve a new contract with police officers.It would give officers raises that average 2 percent a year. As part of the deal, police offices will also be subject to random alcohol testing starting in 2012.

The council is also expected to approve the new Toyota sign that the Cubs want to put up behind the bleachers at Wrigley Field.

The team needs the approval of full council because Wrigley is a landmark. The Cubs say they want the sign because it would raise money to help with upkeep at the ballpark. The team wants the sign up by the start of the Crosstown Classic, which is Friday.
